(Manchester City vs Newcastle football result) – A 5-star home win over Newcastle helped Manchester City overtake Liverpool for the remainder of the title race.
City entered the game at a leisurely pace, rather than aggressively charging their opponents from the start. Part of that may be because their mentality is still affected after last week’s loss to Real Madrid.
Although actively playing slowly in the middle, Manchester City players can still make it difficult for their opponents to defend. De Bruyne’s consecutive good balls allowed Sterling to escape and threaten Newcastle’s goal. The midfielder also had some dangerous crosses to Cancelo on the right flank, but the defender sadly missed.
In the 19th minute, Gundogan made a precise cross, and Cancelo in the penalty area headed the goal wide of the far post. The England striker then headed home from close range, easily putting the ball into the net and opening the scoring for Manchester City.
Newcastle responded immediately after the 24th minute, when the visitors netted the ball after a messy corner. However, one of Chichiche’s players was caught offside earlier.
In the next situation, Manchester City immediately counterattacked and cooperated well on the right. Sterling dribbled the ball smoothly and Cancelo broke into the penalty area. The 27-year-old defender took advantage of the opportunity to launch a powerful kick into the visitors goal, but the angle of the shot was quite narrow. City have yet to score a second.
In the next few minutes, the home team began to slow down the game, almost only opening the opposition line through the midfield. In the 37th minute, Gundogan received the ball from a corner kick and then threw a powerful shot towards Dubravka’s goal.
The goalie can make saves, but can’t catch the ball. Manchester City’s centre-back duo appeared at the right time and seized the opportunity to counterattack. Laporte was the one who doubled the lead for Manchester City.
The Citizens continued to sway Newcastle’s defense in the closing minutes of the first half as Cancelo climbed and dribbled technically. The Portuguese had an impressive half and just lacked the luck to own a goal.
Although Manchester City played not too overwhelming in the first half, they still easily took a 2-goal lead.
In the second half, Pep’s army continued to show an advantage over their opponents. In the first 10 minutes of half-time, Manchester City had 94% of the ball.
Every time there is the ball, the home team will continue to create the situation of spiking the ball in the middle to open the opponent’s defense. In the 60th minute, De Bruyne took a corner kick again and made a precise cross to the near post, creating a chance for Rodri to score a header.
3 goals lead, 3 points are almost firmly in the hands of Manchester City. However, Guardiola’s army doesn’t seem to want to stop. The blue shirts continued to push the team higher and did not let Newcastle play.
The defender duo Zinchenko Cancelo continued to be a bright spot, with consecutive dangerous shots from long distances. Thanks to a brilliant performance from goalkeeper Dubravka, he was able to help Cheek not have to net for the fourth time.
In the 90th to 92nd minutes, Foden and Sterling scored respectively, completing a 5-star victory for the Citizens. This result not only helped Manchester City regain the top spot from Liverpool, but also widened the difference between the two teams to three points.
