Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has said Newcastle United could emerge shock winners of the Premier League title this season.
The Magpies have only lost one fixture this season and are currently in the top four.
Eddie Howe’s men sit in third place, having amassed 24 points from their first 13 games.
Guardiola admits they are capable of maintaining their form throughout the campaign.
“They have an incredible physicality, the rhythm they play and they play one game a week.
“They are not playing in Europe and when this happens it’s a big advantage for deciding moments in terms of energy.
“They have incredible energy – imagine having one long week,” Guardiola said.
