The duty falls on Newcastle to mount a guard of honour for newly crowned English champions Manchester City at St James’ Park tonight.
It will be the second time in a row that the Magpies will be playing that role after doing the same for Liverpool last season at the same venue.
Pep Guardiola’s squad won the EPL in 2018, his second season at Manchester City and retained it the season after. But Liverpool stopped their march to a treble last year.
Newcastle United have no worry. They are not in contention for anything or scared of relegation.
