Newly-crowned Premier League champions Manchester City will take on Newcastle United at St. James’ Park tonight (Friday).
Having flirted with relegation not too long ago, the Magpies have pulled clear of the drop zone due to a run of form that has seen them lose just once in their last six games.
Most recently, Steve Bruce and his men handed Leicester City a shock 4-2 defeat, a result that eventually went on to confirm their status mathematically.
Manchester City, on the other hand, have recovered from a horrendous start to the season to be crowned the Premier League champions for 2020/21.
The Citizens were once as low as eighth in the standings, but have been nothing short of imperious in the second half of the season, one or two sub-par displays in the past month notwithstanding.
Newcastle Utd XI (3-5-2): Dubravka, Fernandez, Clark, Dummett, Murphy, Almiron, Shelvey, Willock, Ritchie, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton
Man City XI (4-3-3): Moraes, Walker, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko, Silva, Hernandez, Guendogan, Mahrez, Jesus, Foden
