City unchanged for Toon trip
Roberto Mancini has an unchanged Manchester City squad for the trip to Newcastle with James Milner and Micah Richards looking to start.
The City boss will take his team to Tyneside on Sunday hoping they can move three points closer to the Premier League title with just a home clash against QPR remaining on the final day.
And, Mancini is boosted by having no fresh injury problems in the fall-out from Monday's 1-0 derby win against Manchester United which has put them in the driving seat to clinch their first championship trophy since 1968.
However, he could look to freshen things up and that might see Richards drafted back into defence with Milner looking to secure a start in midfield. Mario Balotelli could also look to play a part after failing to feature against the Red Devils.
City have the title in their own hands due to their superior goal difference, but Mancini feels United's final two games - at home to Swansea on Sunday and away to Sunderland - are easier so feels they are still the underdogs.
"We have done nothing yet," he said.
"We have got two games left and Sunday will be a tough one.
"Nothing has changed. We just have to do what we did on Monday (against Manchester United)."
