Ayoze Perez sends message on Twitter ahead of Manchester City clash

Manchester City will take on Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League this afternoon.

Newcastle United forward Ayoze Perez has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his excitement at the prospect of playing against Manchester City this afternoon.

The Magpies will take on City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League in a few hours’ time.

Newcastle are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with just three points from seven games.

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

Meanwhile, City will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Citizens suffered a 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in the league last weekend, although they did bounce back with a 2-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach away from home in Germany in the Champions League Group D on Wednesday evening.

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.
