Manchester City vs. Newcastle United - Football Match Report

Newcastle

Walker is a man of superstitions; he regularly performs a Triple H-esque water spit before games and also wears the same pair of shinpads he's had since being a kid.

Kyle Walker's scored his first Manchester City goal in sensational fashion to hand the Premier League champions a hard-fought 2-1 win over Newcastle United.

City remain two points behind league leaders Liverpool and Chelsea following those dropped points last week after the draw against Wolves.

The 22-year-old started just one of City's first five games last season, with Guardiola saying that "he didn't make a good preseason".

The issue of Leroy Sane's attitude will not go away either.

At first, it appeared as if he would not be missed.

Lascelles gifted possession to Benjamin Mendy, who released Sterling outside him, and the England worldwide cut in from the left to curl a shot across goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and inside the far post.

And though City weren't always at their fluent best against an obdurate Magpies side, the City manager hailed Sterling for continually carrying the fight to Newcastle and helping secure the three points.

City could have extended that lead.

Man City: Ederson 6, Walker 8, Stones 7, Laporte 6, Mendy 8, David Silva 7, Fernandinho 7, Mahrez 5, Sterling 8, Jesus 6, Aguero 7.

Newcastle hung in there, however, and equalised on the half-hour mark with a well-worked goal.

City were shaken by that equaliser, and were still labouring to find a way back in front when they came up with a goal from nowhere seven minutes into the second half. Then Walker, from Aguero's run, received the ball 25 yards out, was not closed down and cut a low shot into the bottom corner.
