(Video) Opposition preview: Manchester City vs Newcastle

Esteemed Kompany host Steve Mcinerney is joined by Alex Hurst of True Faith: Newcastle United podcast to look at this week’s opposition Newcastle United.

The Toon roll into the Etihad off the back of a resounding 5-1 win over Aston Villa. The Magpies will be keen to test themselves against the treble winners. A big game awaits both sides in this early season clash of potential title contenders.

Eddie Howe’s side possesses plenty of quality, especially up front. Alexander Isak looms large after his opening-day brace last weekend. He is just one of many threats the Toon possesses.

The European champions possess just as many threats to Newcastle. Erling Haaland will come into this game buoyed by his opening-day brace last weekend. With Kevin De Bruyne on the long-term injury list, Pep Guardiola will be relying on Haaland and others to pick up the slack.

Enjoy the opposition preview in the video below.
