Newcastle United travel to Manchester City on Wednesday night, with neither side having anything to immediately play for.

City won’t see it that way, however, as Pep Guardiola looks for a response from his team following defeat at Southampton.

They also want to be seen as one of the favourites to win the Champions League, which means finding consistency domestically beforehand.

Newcastle look set for a mid-table Premier League finish, but with potential investment over the summer, players should be looking to prove their worth to remain involved.

Here’s all you need to know about the game.
