History of the Newcastle United v Manchester City fixture

Newcastle Utd. prepare to entertain Manchester City at St. James' Park on Monday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Magpies are clearly on top, having won 50 and lost only 13 of the 79 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at St. James' Park was less than a year ago, in January 2008, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Premier League match.
