PEP'S VIEW

“Now, we have five or six weeks to play. The FA Cup on Sunday is important and we need to achieve qualification for UCL and after that we need to prepare for Madrid.

“We cannot forget that we won two titles this season and we have two more to play for.

“We are going to try.”

Opposition view: Steve Bruce

“There’s no disputing we’d love a packed St. James’ Park but it’s not to be.

“We’ve got a big game, a huge game and we’re going to have to be at our best.

“They’re a very good side and they’ll treat the cups now as something to look forward to.”

LAST MEETING

City twice saw hard-fought leads wiped out within a few minutes as Pep Guardiola's men were held 2-2 at St. James' Park in the Premier League.

Raheem Sterling gave the visitors the lead before the Magpies levelled shortly after and in the closing minutes, Kevin De Bruyne thumped home a stunning goal – but again the hosts equalised in the time that remained.

Premier League rule changes

Whilst football is back, it is different from what we are used to.

The absence of fans is the most significant change, but a host of other measures have been implemented to protect players and staff, all of which will affect the matchday experience.
