What TV channel is Man City v Newcastle United on? How to watch, live stream, kick off time and highlights

Everything you need to know about Manchester City’s key Premier League clash with Newcastle United as the title race continues.

Manchester City will be desperate to turn attention back to the Premier League title race after the events of midweek.

Pep Guardiola’s men missed out on the Champions League final following a late collapse, conceding two goals against Real Madrid within the final minutes of the game.

City led by two goals and managed to prevent Los Blancos from having a single shot on target until the 88th minute, but they still found a way to bow out of the Champions League.

They must now focus on the Premier League and finishing the job in the title race, leading by one point with four games remaining.

This weekend, they will take on a Newcastle United side who have improved significantly over recent weeks to all-but wrap up top-flight safety.

City must avoid slipping up to remain in pole position, and they go into this one knowing that Liverpool face a difficult test against an in-form Tottenham side.
