Newcastle United v Manchester City - Premier League

Manchester City currently occupy the top spot in the English Premier League, after a battling 2-0 win over Newcastle United at St James Park.

David Silva gave the champions a first-half lead with a cool finish, after Edin Dzeko created the chance with an exquisite backheel.

City struggled to double the lead in the second half, with the home side pouring forward desperately in search of an equaliser. But it wasn’t until stoppage time, that Sergio Aguero, who came on to replace Dzeko, tucked away the rebound after Tim Krul palmed his initial effort away.

In the first game of the day, Daniel Sturridge scored the winner as Liverpool beat Southampton 2-1. Raheem Sterling had given the hosts the lead, before Nathaniel Clyne blasted the Saints level.
