Newcastle's Ireland defender Ciaran Clark has his sights set on stopping Manchester City's record-breaking run in the Premier L eague.

City's outstanding season continued on Saturday as they chalked up a 17th successive league win by beating Bournemouth 4-0 at the Etihad.

That left Pep Guardiola's side with a commanding lead at the top of the table at the season's halfway point and with a remarkable 60 goals to their name.

Newcastle won for the first time in 10 Premier League games with a 3-2 success at West Ham at the weekend.

And Clark hopes the Magpies can take confidence from that win ahead of facing City at St James' Park tonight.

"We know it's going to be tough, they're an unbelievable side, which they've shown all season," the 28-year-old said.

"But we'll go out there and give it our best shot and then who knows what might happen. Hopefully we can be the team that stops their run."
