Newcastle United vs. Manchester City: Preview and TV schedule

Clive Mason

Manchester City will look to win their sixth Premier League game in a row away at Newcastle United on Sunday.

Manchester City have certainly found some frightening form after a slightly shaky start to life under Manuel Pellegrini, and are only a point adrift of league leaders Arsenal heading into the weekend. They've won five Premier League games on the bounce, with Newcastle United given the unenviable task of trying to halt their charge on Sunday.

Newcastle have had a pretty good start to the season themselves, though come into this game on the back of consecutive 1-0 defeats to Arsenal and West Brom in the league. Even so, a surprise victory could see Alan Pardew's side leapfrog Manchester United into seventh place, with the Magpies having lost only a couple of home games in the league so far this season.

However, the hosts are still without Ryan Taylor and Fabricio Coloccini through injury, while full-back Mathieu Debuchy misses out through suspension. First teamers Yohan Cabaye and Tim Krul are both doubtful. City are without star man Sergio Agüero among others, with question marks over the fitness of Yaya Touré and Jesús Navas.

Newcastle United injuries and suspensions

Out: Ryan Taylor (knee), Fabricio Coloccini (knee), Mathieu Debuchy (suspended). In doubt: Yohan Cabaye (calf), Tim Krul (shoulder).
