Past and future clash as Manchester City take on Newcastle United

With Newcastle keeper Shay Given rumoured to be the subject of a £10 million bid from Manchester City, will Shay want to help his potential new pay-masters or show them what they might miss with a vintage performance?

As the two sides prepare to meet tonight bookie Paddy Power is offering 9/2 Given keeps City at bay with a clean sheet, whilst it’s 15/8 for one goal or 7/1 he goes the whole hog and concedes four or more.

Meanwhile Craig Bellamy looks set to make his debut against one of his many former clubs. The Welsh striker is 13/8 to score on his first appearance for City, 11/2 to grab the first goal of the game and 7/1 to score and get booked.

With former City player Joey Barton also set to line up it’s a game of many stories at the Eastlands stadium and Paddy Power are also betting on what will happen first. Its 2/1 for a Joey Barton booking, 13/8 for a Bellamy goal and 20/1 for a Shay given own goal.
