Manchester City 2-0 Newcastle: Review

Jack and Dimi review the Magpies’ 2-0 defeat at the Etihad Stadium as Newcastle’s eight game unbeaten away run came to an end.

Newcastle played well between the boxes again, and matched the champions for long periods of the game, but were punished for more awful finishing in front of goal. Callum Wilson and Joelinton missed gilt-edged chances and City were clinical with their opportunities.

We have a look at the starting lineup, which caused a storm pre-game, and analyse what the Magpies can do to get back on the scoresheet. Will it be a change in personnel or does it need more than that?

We consider what has gone wrong since the turn of the year and what can be done to arrest the slide.
