When is Man City v Newcastle?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Wednesday July 8.

What time does Man City v Newcastle kick-off?

The game is scheduled for a 6pm kick-off and is one of four Premier League matches that day.

What is at stake?

Not a lot, in all honesty. Manchester City are secure in the top four and their chances of Champions League qualification for next season will be decided by the courts, not the Premier League table, due to their impending ban from European competition.

Newcastle, meanwhile, are mathematically safe from relegation so can play entirely without pressure.

Where can I watch Man City v Newcastle?

It’s being broadcast by BT Sport.

Is Man City v Newcastle free-to-air?

It’s not, no. BT Sports have opted not to make any of their live Premier League matches free-to-air, so you will need a subscription to view.

What is the team news?

Kevin De Bruyne is likely to return for Man City after being rested at Southampton last time out. Sergio Aguero is definitely out, but he is the only real injury concern for Pep Guardiola. Nicolas Otamendi, Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan, and Phil Foden all may start.

Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin are doubts for Newcastle, who will definitely be without Sean Longstaff and Isaac Hayden too. Andy Carroll is also carrying a knock and may not feature.

What happened in the reverse match?

Man City endured a frustrating afternoon on Tyneside in the reverse fixture, twice taking the lead only to be pegged back immediately both times and having to settle for a 2-2 draw. They also recently met in the FA Cup, again at St James’ Park, with Man City winning comfortably.

What are the odds?

Man City are massive 1/8 favourites in this one, with Newcastle priced at 20/1. The draw can be backed at 8/1.
