Manchester City possible line up against Newcastle United; injury and transfer news

Pep guardiola named his strongest squad midweek as they travelled for their clash against Real Madrid in the champions league semi final and might be tempted to name the same squad against the magpies.

Heading to the Newcastle clash this weekend at Etihad stadium, Manchester City have their English full back Kyle Walker and center back John Stones on injury concerns.

Kyle Walker after missing five games across all competition due to ankle problems, came off in the 72nd minute after a surprise start in the champions league match loss to Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu due to the same ankle problem issue.

Stones was not included in the squad to face the Los Blancos due to a muscle problem and is doubtful to be inclusive in the squad against Newcastle.

Absence of Kyle Walker will leave Joao cancelo playing at the right back and Nathan Ake or Aleksandr Zinchenko in the left position with aymeric Laporte and Reuben Dias at center back position.

Bernardo Silva had an outstanding performance despite the loss might be a possible starter together with Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri with IIkay Gundogan and Fernandinho being being also good options and starters in the squad.

The cityzens front line might be a headache choice for Guardiola as he has a vast of talents Raheem sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and jack grealish at his disposal.
