Newcastles battle for Premier League survival continues at home to Manchester City on Tuesday night, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7pm. Deonte Thompson Jersey . Newcastles 3-0 win against Swansea on Saturday moved Rafael Benitezs side to just two points behind rivals Sunderland and three points adrift of 17th-placed Norwich.Manchester City have seen a return to form in April, winning three league games and beating Paris Saint-Germain to progress to the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in their history. Following their 3-0 Saturday Night Football win over Chelsea, Manuel Pellegrinis side are third in the Premier League table and could create a three-point gap over fourth-placed Arsenal with a win at St James Park.Should Sergio Aguero start and score against Newcastle, hell be the second quickest player to score 100 goals in the Premier League after Alan Shearer (124 apps).Team News An injured Vincent Kompany leaves the pitch Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany and forward Raheem Sterling are back in contention for Pellegrinis side.Defender Kompany has been out for the past month with the latest in a succession of calf-related problems, while England international Sterling has missed the last five games with a groin injury.David Silva (ankle) is again missing while forward Samir Nasri, who recently returned from a lengthy lay-off, will rest a minor muscle injury. Full-backs Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna also miss out with back injuries. Daryl Janmaat is one of seven players currently on Newcastles injury list and set to miss the game Newcastle defenders Fabricio Coloccini and Daryl Janmaat are absent for Rafa Benitez. Coloccini is yet to shake off the calf injury which has sidelined him since February, while Janmaat will sit out with groin and hand problems.Full-back Kevin Mbabu is close to a return from a long-standing thigh problem, but goalkeepers Tim Krul and Rob Elliot (both knee) and defenders Steven Taylor (muscle strain) and Massadio Haidara (knee) are still out.Opta stats Aguero could become the second quickest player to score 100 Premier League goals if he scores against Newcastle Newcastle United have won none of the last 18 Premier League meetings against Manchester City (D2 L16), losing the last 12 in a row.If Man City win theyll equal the record of consecutive Premier League wins against a specific opponent (13 - Manchester United against Wigan Athletic).City have won seven and lost none of their last eight visits to St James Park. Rafael Benitez urges his Newcastle players to ignore the other teams around them in the Premier League relegation battle Newcastle have scored just one goal in their last six Premier League games against Manchester City, conceding 23 in that time.Sergio Aguero has scored 10 goals in just eight Premier League appearances against Newcastle United. The Argentina internationals tally of 10 goals is the joint-most he has against any opponent in his Premier League career (along with Tottenham).Aguero has scored 99 Premier League goals in 146 Premier League games - if he scores in this game then hell be the 2nd quickest to 100 goals in the competition after Alan Shearer (124 apps). Manuel Pellegrini has dismissed the idea that Manchester City lost focus when Pep Guardiola was picked as their next manager Man City have scored at least two goals in each of their last 15 Premier League games against Newcastle and 11 in the last two meetings.Pellegrinis next victory will be his 100th as Manchester City manager in all competitions.Paul Mersons Prediction Paul Merson predicts a win for Manchester City Its a crucial game for City in the race for the top-four places so they will be going all out for three points at St James Park. Its difficult to see past a City victory with Pellegrinis side securing a all three points.PAUL PREDICTS: 0-2 (Sky Bet odds: 13/2)Betting After beating Norwich last weekend, can Newcastle secure back-to-back victories? Newcastle are 9/2 shots with Sky Bet to secure back-to-back victories by securing three points in their fight against relegation against Manchester City (3/5).The Toon remain 1/4 to take the plunge despite Saturdays win against Swansea, while City are 100/1 shots to overhaul Leicester and Tottenham and win the title.The last three meetings at St James Park have finished 2-0 to the Citizens and its 13/2 for a repeat of that outcome. Aguero scored five goals in Octobers meeting at the Etihad and is 11/1 to score a hat-trick on Tuesday night. See all the match odds and pundit tips here. Watch Newcastle play Manchester City on Tuesday night from 7pm on Sky Sports 1 HD. Zach Miller Jersey . Nix is a career .218 hitter in 425 games over six seasons. The 31-year-old right-handed hitter batted .270 with a homer this spring for Tampa Bay. Hroniss Grasu Jersey .com) - Devon Johnson ran for a school record 272 yards with four touchdowns and No. http://www.bearsauthenticproshop.com/Youth-Charles-Leno-Bears-Jersey/ . This is Lowry’s third time winning the award in his career. He won the award last season and as a member of the Houston Rockets in 2011.Sky Sports coverage of the Scottish football season reaches a climax on Scottish Cup final day. Its live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 2pm on Saturday. Presenter David Tanner looks forward to the final, and also the arrival of Brendan Rodgers at Celtic... The city of Glasgow never tires of talking football. On the evidence of my strolls along Sauchiehall and Buchanan Streets this week, the volume of the chatter has reached levels not heard for years. Celtic fans told me of their excitement about Brendan Rodgers coming to town. I could only agree! Others were sad that Neil Lennon wasnt being welcomed back; I agreed with them, too. Discussions tended to move onto thoughts about whether the new boss should worry about the return of the other half of the Old Firm to the Premiership. Meanwhile, the blue half of town is all over the Scottish Cup final. As is the green end of Edinburgh! It struck me that this week might prove to be a watershed for Scottish football and for the fans in the countrys biggest city. This is the time when football people appear to me to have started looking forward with anticipation and excitement, rather than looking back in anger. The events that have unfolded at Rangers since 2012 - and the fiscal arrangements which preceded them - have dominated and soured many discussions about Scottish football for way too long. Without the Old Firm going head-to-head to provide the entertainment, fans of the great rivals have been left to argue the toss about tax schemes and other legal complexities. And youd be amazed how many tax experts there are out there now! Everybody has their own truth on this subject. The discourse of discontent can hopefully be drowned out now. Mark Warburton and Alan Stubbs will go head-to-head at Hampden Park Celtic have shown huge appetite and ambition in their pursuit and capture of Rodgers (there were so many fantastic options available to the champions this time!) and there is clearly about to be substantial investment in human resources at Parkhead. The personal intervention of Dermot Desmond in the recruitment process excites me; it sends out a strong message that wasnt there when he took a back seat when the unfathomable appointment of Ronny Deila was made two years ago. Id argue that these great Glasgow clubs exist primarily to beat the other one! Trophies and European runs are an added bonus! As a Celtic supporter, Brendan will understand this but only to a degree... as he becomes immersed in Celtic and the Old Firm, hell soon discover more about the unique culture of bedlam! Hell find Glasgow to be more intense than Liverpool. I believe that prospect will excite him! Luke Shanley tells us Brendan Rodgers is the big-name manager Celtic wanted Before Brendan experiences the Old Firm clash next season - remember, all of the meetings in the Ladbrokes Premiership will be live on Sky Sports - theres a William Hill Scottish Cup final involving Rangers and another big city club, Hibernian, to look forward to.The word from inside Hampden Park is that demand for cup final tickets outstrips even that for the colossal Old Firm semi-final! Hibs and Rangers fans are noticeably looking forward to this game more than they have any other in recent years. McCann: Stubbs tactical edge Neil McCann is backing Rangers to prolong Hibernians Scottish Cup misery this weekend... Why is there such a final frenzy? First and foremost, both sets of fans know that their favourites can win it. For much of this season, it was difficult to separate the clubs in the league - it was two home wins apiece. The years of mayhem at Rangers and, similarly, Hibernians slide into the Championship - and their extended stay there - means the cup final has additional... well... everything! Despite their Championship status, Hibs managed to reach the final of the League Cup. But that good work seemed to be unravelled by the nature of the late defeat to Ross County at Hampden, coupled with a complete collapse in the league. The form slump led to a new phrase entering the Scottish football dictionary... Hibernian will look to end a run of 10 Scottish Cup final defeats stretching back to 1902 when they play Rangers on Saturday Hibsed it (phrasal verb) - to lose a football game, usually near the end, when victory would seem like the easier option. Hibs have Hibsed it again.Dont dare say those words within earshot of Alan Stubbs. The Hibernian manager knows only too well that if his team dont Hibs it against Rangers and actually win the cup for the first time since 1902, then the phrase can be removed from the footy lexicon as quickly as it appeared there - and sports most enduring hoodoo will also have been ended. Hibernian were victorious the last time the sides met, defeating Rangers 3-2 at Easter Road Cup finals are usually decided by courage. Willie Young Jersey. The team that shows the most of it has a habit of winning. In recent years, though, theres been an additional influencing factor in finals.Since the introduction of the divisional play-offs by the old Scottish Football League, the three divisions below the Premiership have all completed their 36-game season some weeks before the top leagues 38-game campaign has ended. This has presented a problem for the lower-league sides: how to rest the players without letting them switch off. Sky Sports pundit Neil McCann is expecting the Scottish Cup final to be a tight match This years is the fifth final since 2006 that teams from outside the Premiership have featured. A decade ago, the then Division 2 winners Gretna lost on penalties to Hearts; since then Division One/Championship Queen of the South, Ross County and Falkirk have all tried to take the final step. All have failed, despite some having engineered some big cup shocks along the way.And that could be where Hibs have the edge in this unprecedented all-Championship final. Their season was extended beyond the end of Rangers campaign by their participation in the play-offs. The last competitive game for Stubbsy and co - one that ended in late defeat in the play-off semis against Falkirk - was just eight days before Hampden. Wallace: Time to deliver Lee Wallace will get the chance to lift his first major trophy as a Rangers player on Saturday... Rangers, on the other hand, havent played a game with anything riding on it since the Old Firm semi-final FIVE weeks ago! Mark Warburton will have had sleepless nights worrying about the after-effects of winning the title so early and the cold storage which followed it.Will Rangers be rested or ready? Will Hibs be sore or stimulated? Is momentum more powerful than inertia? Answering those questions with me in the studio will be a panel of multiple cup winners: Scotland manager (and Hibs fan!) Gordon Strachan, former Hibs and Rangers manager Alex McLeish and Skys Neil McCann, a five-time cup winner. Former Hibernian defender John Brownlie and former Rangers winger Willie Henderson look ahead to Saturdays Scottish Cup final Make sure you tune in from 2pm to enjoy the full live build-up from Hampden - well have exclusive interviews with the Rangers squad and management, Hibs and Scotland midfielder John McGinn tells us about his Hampden hopes and theres my sit-down with Alan Stubbs, a thought-provoking chat about how a cup final drugs test saved his life. So, years of adversity have given the Hibees and the Bluenoses a renewed hunger for success. Saturday May 21 will be the day the good times return - for one set of fans. Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs says his side are determined to win the Scottish Cup final against Rangers Next season, Brendan Rodgers Celtic, Aberdeen and Hearts will all invest to meet the changes in the landscape brought about by Rangers winning promotion. The fixtures for 2016/17 will be announced by the SPFL on Sky Sports News HQ on June 17, so the excitement starts early! Mark the date in your diary... Brendan certainly will!I was asked this week what my personal ambitions are and, without hesitating, I instinctively said: to be in the studio the night Scotland finally qualify for a major tournament! Scotlands World Cup qualifiers are live on Sky Sports next season. Thats something else to look forward to in what will be a outstanding season for the game here.The campaign which ends this weekend has been one in which more of the matches that mattered in Scotland have been live on Sky Sports and its been a pleasure and a privilege to cover them for you. See you next season for even more big games and, as Celtic have now shown us, big names! Enjoy the cup final!
