Wilson hasn't played since December and is short on match practice. Ederson does well to keep it at 3-0 with the save. 

83

Big chance for Wilson! Ederson saves the one on one and denies the striker his first goal in 2022.

80

It'll be four defeats in the last five away games for Newcastle. They'll stay in 13th place for now.

Grealish and Foden race up the pitch but eventually turn back as Newcastle defenders outnumber them. De Bruyne decides to retain it. City are 3-0 up and in no rush.

It's a fine header by the Spaniard.

The atmosphere lifts at the Etihad. City are leading Liverpool by three points at the top of the Premier League. If they avoid defeat in their final three games of the season, they will be champions.

61

GOAL!

De Bruyne's corner from the left is headed home by Rodri!

58

Saint-Maximin turns Cancelo and uses his pace to make space for himself. He then drags his effort wide. Two efforts from distance for Newcastle in the last couple of minutes but they need to make them count if they're to get anything from this game.

Laporte doubles City's lead

Aymeric Laporte has put Guardiola's side into a 2-0 lead at the Etihad.

It's a beautiful cross by Saint-Maximin and Wood has to score there but there's no power on the header.

A win for Man City today will move them back to the top of the table. As things stand, Liverpool are ahead on goal difference. Both teams have 83 points but Liverpool have played the extra game, having drawn 1-1 at home to Spurs yesterday. 

Newcastle are currently 13th on 43 points. 

City looking to move on from Madrid

Has Guardiola mentioned Madrid in the dressing room at the Etihad today? Perhaps not.

It's time for them to move on from their Champions League nightmare at the Bernabéu and win today, although Newcastle have improved under Eddie Howe.

Lacelles and Burn will be at the heart of the defence for the Magpies. Newcastle will want to frustrate City and keep it as tight as possible for as long as possible today.

Eddie Howe discusses Man City

"From our perspective, we will 100% prepare for the best Manchester City so we'll have to be the best Newcastle we can be. Looking back to last week [against Liverpool], that was the disappointing thing that we just lacked a bit of intensity," Howe said.

Guardiola responds to Champions League exit

Pep Guardiola's City side were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid in midweek.

The Catalan coach is yet to win the trophy at City and last tasted European success a decade ago when he was manager of Barcelona.

"I have the feeling that the people from Abu Dhabi bought this club, not to just win the Champions League, they did it to be there in all competitions every season and compete in all competitions until the end," Guardiola told a news conference on Friday.

"We want to do it [win the Champions League]. Maybe I'm not good enough to help the team to do it. Nobody knows what would have happened with other players or managers.

"For us, it is an honour to be there as much as possible in all competitions. I know that some people don't appreciate what this club is doing, maybe it is not enough but for me it is incredibly remarkable being in the semi-finals of the Champions League again after last season."
