Jarred Gillett will be the referee at St James' Park on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester City travel to Tyneside looking to make it three wins from three, after becoming just one of two teams to have a 100% winning record in the Premier League.

City beat Bournemouth 4-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, courtesy of goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne.

Pep Guardiola handed a home debut to summer signing Erling Haaland, who scored twice at the London Stadium one week prior.

The Premier League Champions, who travel to Barcelona for a friendly after Sunday's clash with the Magpies, have added left-back Sergio Gomez to their squad ahead of the weekend.

Gomez has completed an initial £11 million move from RSC Anderlecht, where the Spaniard registered 22 direct goal involvements under Vincent Kompany last season.

City travel to St James' Park looking to extend their winning run over Newcastle to seven successive matches, having won the past six meetings by an aggregate score of 22-3.

Eddie Howe's side are unbeaten so far this season, beating Nottingham Forest on the opening day of the season and drawing 0-0 with Brighton at the AMEX last weekend.

The Magpies sit fifth in the Premier League table, and have also been busy in the summer transfer market.

The Sky Blues beat Newcastle 5-0 in May, with Raheem Sterling scoring twice at the Etihad Stadium.

City's victory memorably came 24 hours after Liverpool dropped points to Spurs in the race for the Premier League title.

Ahead of Sunday's clash at St James' Park, the Premier League have announced the match officials for the fixture.
