Magpies a 'tough one' for Milner
James Milner is wary of the threat his former club Newcastle will have on Manchester City's Premier League title aspirations.
The England international midfielder is hopeful that City's 1-0 derby win against neighbours and title rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium will be the key to them winning a first championship crown since 1968. However, with City leading the Red Devils courtesy of goal difference with two matches remaining, Milner knows Roberto Mancini's men must win them both to make sure of the title. And, with a trip to face Alan Pardew's high-flying Magpies on Sunday up next, Milner knows they will have their work cut out to take the maximum points away from Tyneside. "The game against United was massive and a big result for us - but we can't get carried away," Milner said in The Sun. "We've got two games left and it will be just as difficult, maybe even harder, going away to St James' at the weekend. "That's obviously the next thing on our minds. If we can get a good result there then it's in our hands." City will follow up the game at Newcastle with a home game against struggling QPR and Milner added: "The away trip will be the tougher one of the two we've got left. "We've been in top form at home all year so that's not too much of a worry. But Sunday afternoon will be the tough one."
