Manchester City will take on Newcastle United at St James’ Park today (this Sunday evening) in Matchweek 3 of the 2022/23 Premier League.
Both clubs have had a solid start to their campaigns and are the only two teams in the league with a 100% clean sheet record.

However, that is set to change today when two of the world’s richest clubs face each other on Tyneside.
Newcastle United appear to be very well-organised defensively, but Howe will demand more attacking endeavour in the final third.
City have only conceded two shots on target in 180 minutes of Premier League action so far, and have won both of their games quite comfortably, putting them four points clear of title rivals Liverpool already after two match days.
Since Howe’s arrival, Newcastle have effectively shut the shop at the back and have conceded just ten goals since the turn of the year, if two five-goal defeats against City and Tottenham are kept aside.
So, while City boast a far superior individual quality on paper, they will have to do their due diligence today, with little room for complacency, and Newcastle are not expected to go down without a fight in front of their bouncing home support.
