Probably the toughest fixture to arrive at the worst possible time for Eddie Howe and Newcastle as they host the defending champions Manchester City at St. James' Park in the Premier League. The Magpies have lost three of their Premier League games and the Citizens want to win their third game back-to-back. Also, they will get a boost as Kevin De Bruyne is all set to make his return from injury in the Premier League. Things can't get worse than this for Newcastle. One positive thing for Eddie Howe is Erling Haaland will not be available for this. But, will that make any difference? Only time will tell. In the meantime, let's have a look at the Newcastle vs Manchester City head-to-head in the Premier League.
