Manchester City find themselves in the unusual position of being second in the table, following Liverpool's draw with Tottenham yesterday, but it's hard to see that result as anything other than two points dropped by Jürgen's Klopp's men. A win for City today would put them three points clear with just three games to go.
City, though, will have to recover from the disappointment of losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday following two late goals through Rodrygo and an extra-time penalty by Karim Benzema.
In many ways, Newcastle are the exact opposition Manchester City would want to face right now: the Magpies have an abysmal record against the blue half of Manchester, particularly away from home.
Newcastle could, though, be boosted by the return of key players Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier. Both have been sidelined for months but are edging closer to full fitness. However, Eddie Howe may decide this isn’t the best place to reintroduce them.
Here's how they line up:
Man City: Ederson; Zinchenko, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Grealish, Sterling, Jesus.
Newcastle: Dubravka; Targett, Burn, Lascelles, Krafth; Guimaraes, Joelinton, Longstaff; Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Wood.

How to watch the Manchester City vs Newcastle live stream wherever you are
The Manchester City vs Newcastle live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?
The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.
Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Sling or another service and watch the game.

Whichever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.
If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £9.99 or month-long access for £33.99 but once again, Sky is currently offering a great deal here: you can sign up for six months of access for just £25/month right now.

How to watch the Manchester City vs Newcastle live stream in Canada
Canadians can watch the Manchester City vs Newcastle live stream on DAZN.

Canadians stuck abroad that still want their low-price alternative can use a VPN such as ExpressVPN to trick their streaming device into thinking it's back in the great white north.
