Man City v Newcastle – Probable Lineups – Guardiola has decisions to make in attack, Gundogan likely to start

Man City will be eager to bounce back from last weekend’s disappointing draw against Wolves.

Pep Guardiola’s side have slipped two points behind leaders Liverpool.

Newcastle meanwhile are yet to register a victory this season and have just one point on the board after three games

Guardiola is still unable to call upon Kevin de Bruyne after the Belgium international picked up a knee injury earlier this month.

Gundogan has started all three games for City this season and provided the assist for the Citizens only goal last week.

Guardiola could opt to deploy a 3-5-2 formation or a 4-3-3 against the Magpies this weekend. The like of Bernardo Silva, David Silva, Riyad Mahrez, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling are all in competition for a starting place this weekend.

Newcastle United meanwhile will be without Hayden who picked up a red card and defender Lejeune. Lascelles, Manquillo, Ritchie and Shelbey are all slight injury doubts.
