Manchester City start Premier League life under Manuel Pellegrini by hosting Newcastle United on Monday evening. Both sides are looking to bounce back from last season's disappointment, with City failing to defend their Premier League crown and Newcastle falling from fifth to 16th.
City have been quiet but confident in their transfer dealings so far, and starts are expected for new arrivals Fernandinho, Álvaro Negredo and Jesús Navas. Stevan Jovetić -- who joined this summer from Fiorentina --should also be involved, even if only from the bench. Defender Matija Nastasić is City's only likely absentee, struggling with an ankle injury.
Newcastle's only summer signing, Loïc Rémy, is definitely unavailable, with the former Queens Park Rangers striker still hampered by a calf injury. Ryan Taylor's long-term knee injury continues to rule him out of selection, while Jonás Gutiérrez faces a fitness test to determine whether he's fit to play.
