Aguero or Jesus? Man City’s Predicted XI v Newcastle

By Joel Turner IN General,Lineup,Premier League - 12:05 Dec 27th 2017

Man City can open up a 15 point gap at the top of the Premier League table with victory against Newcastle tonight.

Pep Guardiola's side have now won 17 league games in a row and can extend their advantage in the title race after main rival Man United slipped up with a draw against Burnley on Boxing Day.

Newcastle earned a first win in 10 games following a 3-2 victory against West Ham before Christmas and will be hoping home advantage gives them an edge in getting some points against City.

Guardiola has no fresh injury concerns ahead of tonight's trip to the North East.

Central defender John Stones is back in training after a hamstring injury but the game will likely be too early for him to return. Nicholas Otamendi and Vincent Kompany will continue in midfield.

Left-back Benjamin Mendy is continuing his road to recovery from an ACL injury. Midfielder Phil Foden remains unavailable with an ankle injury.

Despite strong form and continued speculation around his future, Sergio Aguero is likely to make way for Gabriel Jesus in the side as Guardiola continues to rotate his team selection.
