Jesus in for Aguero as Sterling and De Bruyne start

Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) only makes the bench for Manchester City, upon his return from a one-match suspension.

The midfielder was forced to sit out last Saturday’s 2-1 win over Chelsea due to a controversial tweet to teammate Benjamin Mendy (£5.7m), although he did start in midweek for their 1-1 Champions League draw with Shakhtar.

There are three changes for the champions ahead of their trip to Newcastle, with Pep Guardiola hoping to avenge last season’s 2-1 defeat on Tyneside.

Kyle Walker (£5.8m) takes the place of Joao Cancelo (£5.3m) at right-back and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.2m) steps in for Rodrigo (£5.4m) at the base of the midfield, with Sergio Aguero’s (£11.8m) thigh injury ensuring Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) gets the nod alongside Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) and the out-of-form (FPL-wise) Raheem Sterling (£12.0m).

Jesus has three goals from just 462 minutes of Premier League football this season and will hope to impress his manager today.

Steve Bruce has only made one change for Newcastle following Monday’s poor 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa.

DeAndre Yedlin (£4.4m) needlessly gave away a free-kick which led to the opening goal but a hip issue sees him miss proceedings today. Javier Manquillo (£4.3m) gets a rare start.

The front three of Joelinton (£5.7m), Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m) and Miguel Almiron (£5.8m) have just one goal between them all season but limited back-up options have been further strained with a late rib injury for Andy Carroll (£5.4m).

Eight of Newcastle’s 11 goals have come from defenders and they may target the opposition of John Stones (£5.3m) and Fernandinho (£5.2m) as an opportunity at set pieces.

Sean Longstaff (£5.0m) and brother Matthew Longstaff (£4.5m) both make the home side’s bench, with Fabian Schar (£5.0m) still not ready to return at centre-back.

Joining Silva, Cancelo and Rodrigo on the Man City bench is Nicolas Otamendi (£5.1m) and Phil Foden (£5.1m).

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Dubravka; Manquillo, Clark, Fernandez, Dummett, Willems; Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Stones, Mendy; De Bruyne, Gundogan, D Silva; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling.

    Man City still scoring goals. Means their attacking options are still viable FPL assets

      Not going to lie, I was tempted

      There’s something about the siren call of a nailed Man City striker on pens for 9.5 that will act like a flame to even the smartest of moths, myself included

      Luckily I chose a different poison this week

      But Jesus will probably gets points while he plays

    City asset sellers. No wringing of hands until the GW plays out.

    If Son is playing really wide today and doesnt score would you switch back to KDB?!

    Maddison Son Mane Pulisic 
    Jimi Vardy.
