Aguero-Jesus Tandem An Option For Pep

Aguero-Jesus Tandem An Option For Pep

Pep Guardiola could name both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus in the Manchester City line-up for Saturday’s visit of Newcastle. The duo started the 6-1 demolition of Huddersfield and also spent time on the field together in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Wolves.

Guardiola reverted to a back four at Molineux but may decide to play three at the back to free up Benjamin Mendy to play on the left-hand side, while Bernardo Silva could occupy the right flank.

Danilo, Eliaquim Mangala, Kevin De Bruyne and Claudio Bravo are all long-term absentees, but the Spanish boss has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of the Magpies, who have lost on their last nine visits to the Etihad.
