Newcastle United Stun Manchester City


Newcastle came from a goal down to record a win against Manchester City at St James’ Park.

Pep Guardolia’s side suffered from two defensive errors, dashing their hopes of reducing Liverpool’s lead at the top of the premier league rankings.

Man City started well, after Argentina’s Sergio Aguero found the net just after 24 seconds. The forward also had a goal disallowed, after Referee Paul Tierney claimed Kevin De Bruyne took a free-kick before giving him the go ahead. As a result, the Belgian was booked.

Thereafter, the Magpies were less troubled by Guardolia’s side, which led Rafael Benitez’s men to keep hopes alive. Salomon Rondon scored in the 66th minute, giving the home fans something to cheer after he linked up with Isaac Hayden’s header.

In the 78th minute, Newcastle was awarded a penalty after Fernandinho fouled Longstaff in the area. Matt Ritchie made no mistake from the spot confirming another shock defeat for Manchester City.
