Is Newcastle vs Man City on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

Newcastle host Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon at St James’ Park.

With a positive mood surrounding the club, Eddie Howe’s side will relish the challenge of the taking on the champions, with Pep Guardiola’s side in fine form after thrashing Bournemouth last week.

A goalless draw for the Magpies at Brighton ensures four points on the board, with a relegation scrap unlikely to materialise this season.

Their last meeting was at the Etihad with a 5-0 win for the Cityzens, while a 4-0 away win in the reverse fixtures means Newcastle have not scored a Premier League goal since May in 2021.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the fixture.

When is Newcastle United vs Man City?

The match will kick off at 16:30pm on Sunday 21 August at St James’ Park.

How can I watch it?

It will be shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League, with coverage starting from 16:00 BST. Customers can stream the match live on the Sky Go app.

What is the team news?

Federico Fernandez has a calf problem and has missed both games so far, but is gradually approaching a first-team return. Ryan Fraser is a doubt after a back spasm ruled him out against Brighton, while it is the same issue Emil Krafth is currently dealing with, although scans have come back clear on the latter. Jonjo Shelvey is out for 12 weeks with a hamstring injury.

Aymeric Laporte is still recovering from knee surgery but is nearing a return. Kalvin Phillips missed the Bournemouth match with a “niggle” and could factor into Pep Guardiola’s thinking. Casey Palmer is a doubt after missing the Bournemouth match with a “knock to his foot”.

Newcastle United XI: Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Willock, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, C Wilson, Saint-Maximin
