Manchester City vs Newcastle LIVE updates: Latest Premier League scores, news and highlights from the Etihad Stadium

TWITTER ROUND-UP

Becker: Here’s hoping for a Manchester City win today against Newcastle. Hopefully I’ll bump into a few magpie supporters I know and have a beer with them!

Tim: Looks to be a cautious and conservative approach from Rafa with this line-up. Not surprising considering the situation.

Calum: Can’t remember seeing an away end at the Etihad more drunk than the Newcastle boys today. Suspect there’s not a drop of alcohol left in Manchester city centre!

HOW WILL CITY REACT?

17:23: That’s the question on everyone’s lips.

City head into their home clash with Newcastle in unknown territory after losing a league game for the first time this season at Anfield last Sunday.

Liverpool ran riot in the second half, scoring three goals in nine minutes, before City responded to make the scoreline respectable.

But they have a great chance to return to winning ways and extend their 12-point lead at the top against a Newcastle side struggling at the wrong end of the table.
