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.
