Man City predicted line-up gallery vs Newcastle United as four changes made for FA Cup quarter-final clash

Pep Guardiola has some fresh Manchester City injury concerns to contend with this weekend.

Manchester City will look to continue their FA Cup defence this weekend then they host Newcastle United in the quarter-finals. Pep Guardiola's side thumped Luton Town 6-2 in the previous round, with Mateo Kovacic adding to Erling Haaland's incredible five-goal haul.

City have had a rare full week to recover and prepare after leaving Anfield with a 1-1 draw last weekend. The Blues took a first-half lead through John Stones but were made to defend resolutely after Alexis Mac Allister levelled from the spot and would count themselves a little fortunate to have shared the spoils.

Kevin De Bruyne's absence from the Belgium squad may have thrown another fitness concern Guardiola's way, with Ederson also injured. It leaves the Blues boss with some big decisions to make and ManchesterWorld has tried to predict what Sunday's team will look like.
