Newcastle 2 Manchester City 2 – Watch full official match highlights and all four goals here
It ended Newcastle 2 Manchester City 2 on Saturday afternoon.
Newcastle going 1-0 down on 22 minutes as the away side dominated, only for Jetro Willems to stun the visitors with an excellent equaliser.
That came only three minutes after the opener and also saw Miguel Almiron’s first ever assist for Newcastle.
Even better was to come.
After the break we saw a more entertaining spectacle which was capped by two stunning strikes.
De Bruyne with a special one on 82 minutes, the ball volleyed spectacularly in off the crossbar.
Only for Atsu to touch a free-kick to Jonjo Shelvey to curl a 25 yard effort away from Ederson and into the back of the net!
