Its sure to be a cracking weekend of Premiership action, as the early game shown live on Sky Sports 1 sees current Champions Manchester City travelling to Tyneside to take on Alan Pardew’s Newcastle Utd.

Roberto Mancini’s side will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing 3-2 defeat at home to Manchester United last time out when they were foiled by a 90th minute Robin Van Persie winner, which left them six points off the pace at the summit.

The Citizens are no longer unbeaten in the top flight this season of course and this game against a struggling Newcastle side will be a big test of their character, but despite this there is plenty of money coming in for Mancini’s men at a price of 4/6, report Paddy Power.

The Magpies have now lost five of their last six Premier League matches and although they have a squad full of talent, currently sit just two points clear of the relegation zone as their price of 4/1 to pick up all the points at the Sports Direct Arena speaks volumes of their predicament.

The tough games just keep on coming for Alan Pardew, but he knows that is the nature of this English top flight and there are no easy matches.

Pardew has been struck with a number of injury problems, however will still be disappointed with the way his men have performed this season.

After returning to the side in the loss at Fulham last week, Hatem Ben Arfa is now a major injury doubt with a hamstring problem, while his fellow countryman, Frenchman Yohan Cabaye will be out until the new year.

Suspensions and key injuries have played a aprt in the Toon’s slippery slide down the table, but it might take a win against a team like Man City to really kick-start the season and the Newcastle boss will hope that St James’ Park is rocking for the visit of the champions.

Roberto Mancini has a number of selection dilemmas coming into this one. He is likely to drop Mario Balotelli – who did not impress in the Manchester derby – so one of Carlos Tevez or Edin Dzeko is sure to come in and support Sergio Aguero.

Although their opponents are struggling right now, Mancini knows that this is one of the toughest places to come in the Premier League and that his men have to perform to take anything from the North East.

The Italian will be after all three points and nothing else on Saturday afternoon, something that would put the pressure on United to go and win as they kick-off later in the day.

This one gets underway from 12.45PM.
