Charlotte Robson from the True Faith: Newcastle United Podcast gave her verdict on the Magpies' FA Cup clash with Manchester City on the Total Sport podcast: "I would have fancied us a bit more if it was at home. I think Manchester City will take this very seriously.

"I'm not particularly confident going into this game, but stranger things have happened. We have a little bit of a habit of pulling performances when we have not performed in the game before.

"I'm not going to say it's 100% City, we could pull something out here but I think it's a massive blow that we've likely lost Gordon for this game. I would be surprised if he's starting based off the noise coming out of the club.

"I'm nervous. I keep talking myself out of it."

Charlotte was "positive" and predicted 2-1 to Newcastle. BBC Radio Newcastle's Matthew Raisbeck also went for 2-1 for the Magpies, with a Miguel Almiron goal.
