Manchester City v Newcastle United Preview, Premiership, Saturday 17th August 2013

Mixed results during pre-season for Manchester City with some exciting play in July when facing AC Milan in which 8 goals were scored as City won 5 – 3 after 90 minutes, yet sadly in August results went against them with a defeat to Arsenal 3 – 1 and before that a 2 – 1 loss to European Champions Bayern Munich at home.

Yet Pellegrini still insists it is his side who are the English Premierships best team as they come to Mondays opener. In other news Joleon Lescott is determined to prove his worth to the new boss in hopes of earning a new deal, and with entering his last year under contract he will be keen to establish himself as number 1 defender in hopes of securing his selection to the England squad for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil next year.

A lot of the talk this summer from the Newcastle camp has come about French midfielder Cabaye who is reportedly a target by many of Europe’s top clubs, yet manager Pardew has insisted his star man is not for sale and has also said that no offers have came in for his man and a lot of the talk is down to media hype.

Sadly for Newcastle is seems new loan signing Loic Remy could miss the start of the season with an ongoing calf injury and will definitely miss the game on Monday and then possibly further matches against West Ham and Fulham in the coming weeks.

Manchester City v Newcastle United Team News

Manchester City Team News:

Big money has been spent this summer by new manager Manuel Pellegrini who has totaled an incredible £100 million spent so far with possibly more new faces coming to the Etihad. Some exciting names are now wearing the light blue shirt with names like Fernandinho, Negredo, Jovetic and Spanish winger Jesus Navas who is going to be one to watch with such devastating pace down the wings. Outbound has seen controversial striker Carlos Tevez leave the club for Italian giants Juventus as well as defender Kolo Toure who has recently joined Liverpool on a free transfer.

Newcastle United Team News:

A majority of the transfer news at Newcastle has seen boss Alan Pardew letting players leave the club but fans not need to worry as many of the faces failed to keep down a first team place last term. The only new name to join the club is French star Loic Remy who has joined on a season long loan from Championship side Queens Park Rangers but due to a calf injury will miss out the first few games of the new season, much to the disappointment of manager and player.
