Newcastle United will have a huge task on their hands on Tuesday night when Manchester City visit St. James’ Park looking to extend their incredible run of winning form.

Pep Guardiola’s side are firing on all cylinders as they pursue Liverpool at the Premier League summit and have won eight games on the bounce, scoring 28 goals without conceding in their last six matches.

Burnley fell victim last time out through a 5-0 FA Cup fourth round mauling at the Etihad Stadium, whilst Newcastle suffered a 2-0 defeat against Watford at St. James’.

The Magpies were victorious at home against Cardiff in their previous league outing after centre-back Fabian Schar popped up with two well-taken goals to earn the club’s first top-flight win in five matches.

It wouldn’t be false to say that Man City are expected to go up to Newcastle and take all three points, but the 11 men Rafa Benitez lines up will be vying to steer themselves further away from the relegation zone.

Here’s who I think will start for the hosts under the floodlights.
