Manchester City v Newcastle Utd: DeAndre Yedlin confident for Magpies' Etihad showdown

15. Southampton

Yet any fears City fans might have had about the desire of Guardiola's squad to win the title were put to bed on Saturday after the brilliant Aguero bagged the match ball from a fixture where City ran Newcastle ragged.

Paul Lambert enjoyed the flawless start as Stoke City boss as his new side brushed aside Australian worldwide Aaron Mooy's Huddersfield 2-0 to move out of the bottom three.

Aguero's glancing header and penalty looked to have sealed it but Jacob Murphy's breakaway goal gave Newcastle hope until Sane's magic set up Aguero for his 11th treble for City - and 14th goal in 12 games against the Geordies.

On another goal-friendly night for the Argentine, here are three winners and three losers. And then, this fixture against Burnley could not have come at a better time! They were happy to allow City all of the ball and survived their first close call on six minutes. The Argentine scored three and posted an assist against Watford on September 16. But, over the last six gameweeks, they failed to win a single game and are now five points below sixth placed Arsenal.

Raheem Sterling seemed to open the scoring in the 18th minute, but his tap-in on a rapid counterattack that included a passing sequence involving Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and David Silva, was ruled correctly offside.

"And you go through any champions, World Cup, Premier League, European Championships, European Cups, tell me a team that has won anything without a good, in-form goalkeeper?"

'Newcastle aren't going to attack, can't see much need for a leftback at all tbh, we could stick anyone there.

Democrats might try to extend shutdown: Mulvaney
Mulvaney said some Democrats want to rain on Trump's parade when he delivers the speech to a joint-session of Congress on January 30.

City are still a force to be reckoned with, and seeing how they decide to handle Newcastle as they bounce back from that tough loss could be quite interesting to see, as we've rarely gotten to see Manchester have to prove a point at another team's expense this season.

"It's going to be a really big game for us".

With Pep at the helm, City are in full stride, beating every opponent they faced by many goals.

Meanwhile, manager Pep Guardiola hit out at detractors for focusing on the money they have spent when other clubs have splurged the same but, have not managed to bring in the quantity of players they have.

Since joining from Real Madrid Danilo has struggled for game time, starting just seven league games out of a possible 24 and there have been reports claiming the Brazilian is looking for a move away.

Whether pressing is the way to stop City - and that remains up for debate as they've only been beaten once - Newcastle's tactic will be to hold out for a miraculous point. This week they expect the Reds to win easily, but that expectation can be a threat in itself.
