View a selection of images from training as Manchester City fine-tuned preparations for our FA Cup meeting with Newcastle.

Pep Guardiola’s side welcome the Magpies to the Etihad Stadium for a 17:30 (UK) kick-off on Saturday 16 March with a place in the semi-finals at steak.

We reached the last-eight of the historic competition with victories over Huddersfield, Spurs and Luton – scoring a combined 12 goals across the three assignments.  

Now, as our defence of the trophy continues, Eddie Howe’s side will provide a stern test if we are to secure passage into the last four.


City’s clash with Newcastle represents the fourth time we will have faced them this season after recording wins in both league fixtures either side of a narrow 1-0 Carabao Cup defeat at St James’ Park.

As Guardiola’s team aim to record a third victory over the Tyneside team this term, we were working hard at the City Football Academy with the FA Cup tie only two days away.
