Man City boss Guardiola: Newcastle a title contender

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says Newcastle are already a force.

Guardiola sees Newcastle being in the mix this season to challenge for the title and top four.

"Newcastle are already there," says Guardiola, whose City side are seeking a third consecutive Premier League title.

"I saw them against Tottenham. The central defenders went man to man against Kane and Son with no problem at all.

"We played them in the third game of the season. Imagine this team playing one game a week? We know how good Eddie the manager is.

"They have new players. They play brave. They are a contender to be there."
