Newcastle United host Manchester City on Friday night, with both teams having recently achieved their objectives for the Premier League season.

City have won back the title, sitting 10 points clear of rivals Man United with three games left to play.

The Magpies assured themselves of another season in the top flight thanks to three wins in their last five, leaving them 16th in the table, 12 points clear of the drop zone.

City do still have the Champions League final to prepare for, so it’s possible Pep Guardiola uses the remaining league fixtures to give each member of his squad a chance to stake their claim to be involved.

The Magpies might make a bit of a game of it if they’re not directed to put 10 behind the ball at all times, but ultimately City’s players are trying to earn a spot in the team for the European Cup final - they’ll find a way through eventually. Newcastle 1-3 Man City.
