Man City vs Newcastle: Guardiola ready for Benitez’s Chelsea tactics

Man City vs Newcastle: Guardiola ready for Benitez’s Chelsea tactics

Newcastle are yet to win this season and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.

Newcastle United will stick to their defensive approach in big games and continue to back manager Rafa Benitez, says Mohamed Diame.

"What we have to do is what we have to do - try to be better than the opponent every single game, try to follow what we spoke about and prepared".

Without enough quality in creative and attacking areas due to lack of investment, the Premier League is always going to be a struggle.

Liverpool and Chelsea preserved their 100 per cent records earlier in the day, while Watford surprisingly did likewise by beating Tottenham 2-1 on Sunday, meaning the early indications are Guardiola's record-breaking champions of last season will have a little more company this time around. When we play with four and we are attacking at the end and we are pushing, they can run in behind our defenders.

Obviously, Arsenal will still be tough because they are another top side, but maybe we will have a few more chances.

Teddy Bridgewater Reportedly Had Crazy End To Tenure With Jets
Bridgewater arguably outplayed Darnold this summer, going 28 of 38 for 316 yards, two TDs and one interception. The Saints appear to have made a decision to upgrade at backup quarterback behind Drew Brees this year.

The 22-year-old started just one of City's first five games last season, with Guardiola saying that "he didn't make a good preseason".

"We were close to getting something and that has to be a good thing".

"We gave the ball away for the first and the second was a great goal".

But the home side conceded a sloppy goal when Kenedy played in Rondon on the left and the striker slid a low cross into the six-yard box toward the far post where Mendy would normally have been guarding.

"We can not be watching the table, it is too early".

That was to be the case as Newcastle struggled to get a hold of possession as City returned to winning ways.
