Pep Guardiola hope’s of a faultless approach to the remaining Premier League games suffered a major blow as the cityzens were humbled by Newcastle united.
Manchester city took the lead as early as 24 seconds into the encounter through Sergio Aguero.
It didn’t take too long for the citizens to put themselves upfront in the encounter.
Raheem sterling’s moved down the right and floated the cross towards Newcastle far post which David Silva manged to head to ball into the hand of Aguero for easy finish.
No one saw it coming and everyone expected more from City when the first goal went in early.
But Newcastle continued to press forward until Ayoze Perez caught Danilo in possesion and drove the ball into box which eventually went wide.
It became an end to end stuff as the two teams continued to attack each other from different angles.
After the break, Newcastle finally got off the hook when Ritchie crossed from the left side to Hayden, who easily made the ball available to Rondon to score.
After the goal was scored, Manchester city kept on dominating till the penalty call in 78 minute and Matt Ritchie easily converted the spot kick.
This mistake could not be averted.
Manchester city’s title hope’s currently face a huge blow and if Liverpoll win against Leicester city, the point gap will increase.
