Newcastle tougher than Man Utd - Mancini

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini believes Sunday's fixture at Newcastle will be a tougher test than Monday's derby against Manchester United, which City won 1-0 to move top of the table.

Mancini says it will be "harder" to defeat Newcastle because the fixture is away at the Sport Direct Arena rather than at the Etihad Stadium.

The Italian adds that he is "proud" of his players for overcoming an eight-point deficit to overtake Manchester United at the top of the Premier League.
