Striker Sergio Aguero is in contention for Manchester City's opening Premier League game of the season against Newcastle after overcoming a knee injury.

Defender Matija Nastasic is missing due to an ankle injury but is expected to return to training next week.

New signings Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic could make their debuts.

Newcastle new boy Loic Remy is a confirmed absentee from his side's squad.

The Frenchman has been sufferering from a nagging calf problem since linking up with the Magpies in the summer, and boss Alan Pardew has admitted it may take until the end of the month to clear.

Jonas Gutierrez could come into contention after making good progress from a hamstring complaint, and Pardew does not expect any new injury concerns.

Man City: Hart, Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Richards, Kompany, Lescott, Boyata, Clichy, Kolarov, Nasri, Milner, Toure, Fernandinho, Silva, Navas, Garcia, Rodwell, Barry, Dzeko, Aguero, Jovetic, Negredo.

Newcastle: Krul, Elliot, Debuchy, S Taylor, Yanga-Mbiwa, Coloccini, Santon, Ben Arfa, Obertan, Tiote, Cabaye, Sissoko, Anita, Gutierrez, Shola Ameobi, Gouffran, Cisse, Marveaux.
