Yanga-Mbiwa has picked up a knock and is now doubtful for Newcastle's opener against the champions Manchester City on Sunday, Lee Ryder of the Chronicle reports.

Yanga-Mbiwa likely wouldn't have been included in manager Alan Pardew's starting XI and now it looks like he won't be included on the bench aswell. Either way, it's best to avoid Newcastle defenders for Gameweek 1 if possible, as they have one of the toughest fixtures of the season going against high-powered Manchester City.
