Manchester City will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon when they take on Newcastle United at home.

As things stand, Manuel Pellegrini’s side are second in the Premier League table with 15 points from seven matches, just a point behind leaders Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are second from bottom in the league standings with just three points from seven games.

The Magpies have yet to win a game in the Premier League this campaign, but their performance in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea at St. James’ Park last weekend was encouraging.

Steve McClaren has only won two of his last 20 league matches as a manager with Newcastle and Derby County.
