Newcastle United have never won a Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium (D2 L14), losing each of their last 12 visits to the ground. Their last away win at Manchester City was at Maine Road in September 2000, with Alan Shearer scoring the winner in a 1-0 victory.

Man City have lost just one of their last 28 league matches against Newcastle (W23 D4), a 2-1 defeat at St James’ Park in January 2019.

Only Liverpool (41) and Manchester City (33) have won more Premier League points in 2022 than Newcastle (32). However, the Magpies have lost three of their last four away league matches (W1).

Gabriel Jesus has been involved in 76 goals in 96 Premier League starts for Manchester City (53 goals, 23 assists) and has either scored or assisted in at least 58 per cent of his starts (56). Among players to start at least 10 matches, only Mohamed Salah (62%), Thierry Henry (61%) and Sergio Aguero (60%) have been involved in at least one goal in a higher percentage of their starts in the competition.

Manchester City vs Newcastle United: Team news

Eddie Howe revealed Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier could feature for Newcastle United.

“Callum has trained all week and I’ve been really pleased with him,” Howe said. “He’s trained very well and come through two very tough days. Physically, he looks good and has put a lot of work in to get to this point so I’m very pleased with the attitude, as always, with Callum. He looks in a good place and there’s a good chance he’ll be involved.

“Kieran is slightly behind him this week in the sense he hasn’t trained everyday. When he has, he trained very well so we’ll make a late decision on him. It’s incredible to have players of that quality come back into your squad. We’ve missed them not just as players but as personalities.

“I think everyone saw the impact Kieran had on the team in a very short period of time, not just with his performances but his leadership skills and the ability to help players on the pitch during games. To be able to add that back into the training group has been a brilliant lift for everybody.

“I’ve tried to stay in regular contact with both players. I think they’ve both reacted very well to the difficult situation they’ve been in, especially Callum because I think his injury was at a difficult time for him in the season. He’s very strong, resilient and he’s come back with a bounce.

“We haven’t seen Fabian this week so we hope he will be back to be available. He got a knock on the top of his foot so he went for a scan immediately after the (Liverpool) game to check it wasn’t broken as it swelled up. Fortunately, there was no fracture.”
