Manchester City defeat Newcastle 2-1

Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles

Germany worldwide Sane was missing from City's matchday squad as goals from Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker secured a 2-1 victory that moved the champions to within two points of leaders Liverpool and Chelsea.

A report claims that Leroy Sane's future at Manchester City is uncertain after being culled from Pep Guardiola's 18-man squad for the 2-1 win against Newcastle United.

Raheem Sterling's clinically taken opener in the eighth minute suggested a romp in line with City's 6-1 thumping of Huddersfield Town in their previous home game.

Full-back Walker was the match-winner with his first goal for the club, picking the ball up 30 yards out and drilling a low finish into the far corner of the net.

The result leaves Newcastle with just one point - a draw against newly promoted Cardiff - and manager Rafa Benitez, after its League Cup exit to second-tier Nottingham Forest in midweek, with more questions to answer.


City must fight and grind, and they did.

Did Man City miss Leroy Sane? .

Kyle Walker (Man City) - The wing-back isn't known for his attacking prowess, but what a way to grab your first goal in Manchester City colours.

If Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles, restored to the starting lineup after injury, was looking to redeem himself after a reported training ground fracas with Matt Ritchie, the centre back failed miserably.

Venezuela global Rondon was handed a thankless task as Newcastle's attacking spearhead but went about his work with gusto. Yedlin levels the scores totally against the run of play! So they will get that side of me, feeling compassionate. Not once, twice but three times Dubravka comes to Newcastle's rescue!
