Man City breezes past Newcastle in EPL

Man City breezes past Newcastle in EPL

Liverpool beat City 4-3 at Anfield last time out, but the runaway leader rarely looked in danger of dropping further points against Newcastle, Aguero taking his tally of goals against Newcastle to 14. He opened the scoring by getting the faintest of touches to a Kevin De Bruyne cross in the 34th minute and then doubled the lead with a penalty after Raheem Sterling was fouled.

Yet after also losing only 1-0 to City in December, defender Paul Dummett feels they should take encouragement from how they have played against Pep Guardiola's impressive side.

But struggling Newcastle scored against the run of play four minutes later when a rare lapse saw Jacob Murphy sprint through and finish in composed fashion.

City's victory prevented any further erosion of what remains a formidable 12-point lead at the top of the table. "We were patient and we found space really well, they crossed the halfway line just once and scored".

"It's been a long journey since I joined and we're going to continue going forward, trying to win trophies".

However, City were able to breathe easy with seven minutes remaining when the thrilling Leroy Sane waltzed around and through Newcastle's defence before laying off to Aguero who swept home his third goal.

"It [City's title challenge] is going to depend on us".

Benitez said: 'In my last conversation with Mike Ashley he said we have the green light to sign players and I would like to see some of them come in before 31 January and I have confidence we will do it. "We face these kind of teams - Southampton, West Ham, Bournemouth, who play with the 5-4-1, that's why it's so important to attack this kind of team", Guardiola told BBC Sport.

"I said, 'Don't look back, look at what we have to achieve, ' because if you try to (look at) what happened behind, that is not a good solution from my experience".

Reflecting on Saturday's match, the former Liverpool manager said: "I think that we wanted to stay in the game and we did it, the penalty was a bit soft and it changed everything".
