Newcastle v Manchester City (1:30)
6th May
Referee - Howard Webb

Current Premier League leaders, Manchester City, travel up to the north east to play Newcastle this Sunday afternoon. Alan Pardew's side will be looking to make it ten home games without a defeat in 2012 in front of a packed St James'.
    United's last victory against City at St James' Park came in 2005, with a goal from Michael Owen.
    Peter Lovenkrands, Steven Taylor and Haris Vuckic all remain on the treatment table and won't return this season. News on the fitness or otherwise of Danny Simpson is awaited.
     MCFC: David Silva is set to play despite suffering from an ankle problem, while goalkeeper Joe Hart is reported to be in danger of losing his ever-present tag this season due to a foot injury. 

    If wanting to end our home campaign on a winning note and finish in the highest place possible isn't incentive enough for the Magpies, let's recall the comments of City swinger Noel Gallagher back in 2009:
    "I hope Newcastle go down. There's no better sight than seeing fat topless Geordies crying." 
Sir Bobby Robson's statue will be revealed next to the old ticket office in a ceremony at 10:30 on Sunday morning. Managerial staff and players, along with Ladie Elsie, will be in attendance to mark what will prove to be a great moment for Newcastle United.
    Newcastle revealed that a lap of honour will take place after the game, to thank the great support that the fans have displayed this season. Not only that, but a 'Tweet Up' will by held at 4:30pm after the game at the Cosmic Ballroon, and I would urge all fans to join us in a celebration of what has been a great season.

In the last 10 against City at SJP, Newcastle have:

Won 5
Drawn 1 
Lost 4
