Newcastle vs. Manchester City – Team Prediction, Injuries, And Poll Result


This is the team we predict Steve Bruce will select for today’s FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester City. It has 8 changes from the Aston Villa draw and is a mix of forced changes and rotation.

Newcastle could have up to seven Magpies unavailable this evening, with two confirmed out. Three players who played against Sheffield and Villa face late fitness tests in Matt Ritchie, Isaac Hayden, and Jonjo Shelvey.

The Longstaff brothers will be assessed after being unavailable this past week. If they are unavailable along with Shelvey and Hayden, Bruce could find himself short in midfield.

Manchester City are also sweating out a couple of late fitness tests and will not have Sergio Aguero available due to a knee injury.

Newcastle Injuries

Ciaran Clark – foot, Florian Lejeune – undisclosed, Matty Longstaff – thigh (late fitness test), Sean Longstaff – knock (late fitness test), Matt Ritchie – thigh (late fitness test), Isaac Hayden – knock (late fitness test), Jonjo Shelvey – knock (late fitness test)

strong>Manchester City Injuries

Sergio Aguero – knee, John Stones – ankle, Joao Cancelo – knock, Claudio Bravo – thigh (late fitness test), Phil Foden – thigh (late fitness test), Eric Garcia – concussion (late fitness test), Fernandinho – red card suspension

Our poll shows that our readers aren’t too confident of advancing to the semi-finals. About 2/3s of the voters think we’ll be knocked out of the FA Cup this evening.

The lads fought for an unlikely draw against City in November. However, it’s a pity this one will be played at an empty St James Park. But we expect they’ll be up for the occasion none the less.

Hopefully, they can get the result we’re all hoping for this evening.

    Jib – I do recall you also said you lectured in psychology.

    What about ships captain -delivering items to Genoa I think it was.

    Don’t pull the old “I was hacked” routine.

    I’ve nowt or never have had owt to do with Kevin V. He’s proved himself to being attached to an extremist faction which is not too popular with the powers that be.

    The leadership don’t refer to the Gulags these days but if KV should disappear, there’ll be no need to worry – he’ll be doing something constructive, somewhere.

    Well played sir.

    Jib, take note: this is what being “bang to rights” looks like: not hollow accusations, bit actual evidence and analysis. PR your way out of that steaming pile of lies, mate. As I said a long time ago, I see right through you.

    I wonder is there any correlation between the Wife imposing avatars and jib deciding against his own wishes to finally get one to “prove” he wasn’t a previously caught out version of himself, like Jeff from Benwell? Hmm.

    You must be pleased if this takeover fails to go through. It must pay better than stacking shelves at Shirebrook?

    And The Chronicle (that celebrated well respected newsheet), they are probably as bad if not worse than Caulkin. They are now saying that an American based consortium are now interested in buying the Toon. New news , old news? – or probably just more FAKE NEWS.

    Where’d ships captain come from? Chief Engineer yes, Genoa yes and let’s not forget a certain someone offering expert opinion when some road bridge collapsed near Genoa.

    I think this is the American consortium that Henry Winter mentioned a month ago or longer that were interested in buying us

    The other guy – Mauriss ?? (Is fake) in my opinion

    The other could be genuine however it’s late (Again in my opinion)

    Aye Jib said he knew all the back streets in Genoa. You’d have to be about 300years old to have done all the things Jib said he has done.

    “Mindshaft WordPress told me to change my e-mail
    I think the same thing happened with Jail
    If you look at his earlier posts there is no avatar
    but it’s defo him.”

    So what’s all this about an “imposter” now? Lies upon lies mate. Why not just tell us the truth? We all know already…

    Jib – I do recall you also said you lectured in psychology.

    Nope – you made that up
    You also said I’d claimed to be SAS

    What about ships captain -delivering items to Genoa I think it was.

    I worked as fitter in a drydock in Trieste for a few months and sailed
    round Italy to Genoa twice on repaired ships
    (A hell of an interesting trip btw)

    You see this is what knuckle draggers like you do

    Pick up on something and because you’re a been nowhere done nowt
    you embroider stuff

    Is that the animal rights dude? I read a bit of “Animal Liberation” (I think that’s what it is called) but from my point of view I was already on board with anti-speciesism so I didn’t bother reading more. I remember him having a great writing style and coming off as pretty knowledgeable, though.

    OK Frank thanks for that. I’m not a great believer in taking on board NEWS these days whether it be about the Toon , Covid 19 or whatever. Very little of it turns out to be factual and true sadly.
    However the team that Irish Rob picked earlier I would go with apart from Miggy for Ritchie and put the rest IF fit on the bench.
