Arsenal great Paul Merson tips the Citizens to win Newcastle.

Manchester City play Newcastle United at the Etihad and ex-Gunner Paul Merson tips the Citizens to bounce back with a win over the Magpies.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have been poor in their last two Premier League fixtures but Merson says they will seal three points over Castle and fancies Sergio Arguero to be on the scoresheet.

"I thought Chelsea would have slaughtered Newcastle last weekend and that didn't happen. I expect Man City to bounce back from their two shocking results in the league,” the ex-Gunner told Sky Sports.

"Newcastle did as well as they could and still only drew against a Chelsea side that didn't turn up until midway through the second half. I fancy Sergio Aguero to build off his late penalty in the Champions League and steer City back on track."
