Walker gives Manchester City win over Newcastle

Sergio Aguero

Kyle Walker's scored his first Manchester City goal in sensational fashion to hand the Premier League champions a hard-fought 2-1 win over Newcastle United.

The goal came after Jamaal Lascelles played an very bad pass out from the edge of his own penalty area, enabling Benjamin Mendy to intercept and feed a pass left to Sterling, who cut inside and drilled a shot into the far corner.

The visitors restored parity in the 30th minute through DeAndre Yedlin who was wonderfully set up by Solomon Rondon.

Man. City vs Newcastle: England right-back Kyle Walker's first goal for nearly three years ensured Manchester City celebrated a 2-1 victory over Newcastle on the 10th anniversary of the club's takeover by Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Mansour.

Newcastle United will have captain Jamaal Lascelles back in the squad for the trip to Manchester City - but will be missing two of their most-influential players.


"We have six strikers".

It was Yedlin's first Premier League goal and first goal anywhere since September 10, 2016, against Derby in the English League Cup.

Newcastle lined up with a 5-4-1 formation for last weekend's 2-1 home loss to Chelsea, and boss Benitez was criticised for the defensive approach he had adopted.

Walker's goal saw City regain the lead and appeared to break Newcastle's resolve, with Jesus soon denied by an offside flag before Dubravka made a double save from Fernandinho and David Silva.

The result leaves Newcastle with just one point - a draw against newly promoted Cardiff - and manager Rafa Benitez, after its League Cup exit to second-tier Nottingham Forest in midweek, with more questions to answer.
