Newcastle United 0-4 Manchester City; three massive observations from the game
Manchester City proved their title credentials as they mauled relegation-threatened Newcastle United in the Premier League.
It was an exciting game at the St. James Park as the Manchester City side triumphed in style against all odds especially as fellow title rivals Liverpool and Chelsea all dropped points this weekend.
City had the fortune to enjoy unlike the Reds and the Blues who were pegged back by Tottenham Hotspur and Wolves in their respective fixtures.
With the City’s win at Newcastle United here, Isagoal.com takes a look at three massive observations from the game.
Impressive Joao Cancelo
The Manchester City right-back was outstanding in the game having made the assist for the first goal which was nodded home (from close range) by fellow defender Ruben Dias.
From the run of play, he beat his marker high up the pitch before finishing with aplomb in the top corner to make it 2-0 to the goods.
His sides would be pleased with his contribution while the goal he scored could be a contender for the best goal in the month of December.
He was in top form in this match as he set the tone for City’s emphatic win over Newcastle United on Sunday.
50 Goals for Riyad Mahrez
The Algerian star would be pleased with his superb finish to make it 0-3 in the second-half following a delightful floated ball into the box.
Though it looks like he was in an offside position in the build-up to the goal. But after many checks by VAR (Video Assistant referee), the goal was duly awarded.
While he celebrated with his teammate a goal of his own. The goal is Mahrez’s 50th goal for Manchester City as it underlines his incredible relevance to the club.
Newcastle in Relegation Trouble
The Manchester City side showed no mercy in the way they went about their dealing against the Magpies at home.
And with the heavy defeat they had in this match, more pressure awaits Newcastle United along in the season.
They are close to the relegation places with Norwich City at the bottom of the table.
And the defeat has done more harm than good for them in the course of the contest as far as their League position is concerned in the Premier League.
