Watch brilliant Jonjo Shelvey and Kevin De Bruyne goals here from Newcastle 2 Manchester City 2 

1 year ago

What a time for Jonjo shelvey to score his first ever Premier League goal at St James Park for Newcastle United.

Only forty six and a half months after signing after signing for NUFC, he breaks his PL home duck.

A goal that could be very important for all kinds of reasons.

Newcastle went behind to a Raheem Sterling goal on 22 minutes, only for Jetro Willems to get a great equaliser after a first ever NUFC assist for Miguel Almiron!

The game livened up in the second-half but despite their possession, Man City looked to be heading for a draw that would surely make their title hopes all but end for sure.

Then out of nowhere Kevin de Bruyne hit a stunning volley with six minutes left (watch below).

Incredibly, Newcastle came back at them again.

Atsu laying a free-kick to Jonjo Shelvey outside the box and his brilliant effort curled beyond Ederson for a superb equaliser (watch below).

Kevin de Bruyne doing this on 82 minutes:

Then an even better one (might be slightly biased…) from Jonjo Shelvey six minutes later:

Liverpool fans no doubt toasting Jonjo Shelvey as we speak!
