Manchester City v Newcastle Utd: DeAndre Yedlin confident for Magpies' Etihad showdown

Manchester City v Newcastle Utd: DeAndre Yedlin confident for Magpies' Etihad showdown

The Chilean was hotly-tipped to join the league leaders in the January transfer window, but since the Citizens have cooled their interest a move to their local rivals Manchester United now seems to be certain.

Manchester City bounced back from their first Premier League defeat of the season with little difficulty, as Sergio Aguero again tormented Newcastle United by scoring a flawless hat-trick in a 3-1 home win at the Etihad Stadium.

"They are so strong but I really think we deserved it". No words to describe him.

"I don't know how many wins will we need, I have not counted, but maybe we must win 50 percent of the games we have left", new manager Carlos Carvalhal said.

It changes all the time but based on how teams are playing, Manchester City are obviously first and then I think Liverpool have proved they are the second-best team in the league. His reaction doesn't depend on the fact that one player comes or doesn't come. Dwight Gayle is doubtful, Mitrovic still can't get a game and Benitez almost got a point from the last game between these two by sitting ultra deep and clinging onto dear life. It depends not on one person come or doesn't come.

Sergio Aguero celebrates after scoring during the UEFA Champions League football match against Napoli on November 1, 2017 at the San Paolo stadium in Naples.

Guardiola was delighted with the way City returned to winning ways after the defeat at Anfield.

The win has restored City's 12-point lead over second place Manchester United. They lead the league by 12 points and are on pace to shatter the record of points in a season. "It was important how we reacted at 2-1, we didn't panic".

Many are convinced the cryptic Instagram post is a clue about the name Kim and Kanye have given their new baby girl. " Kylie was brought to tears as she was able to meet her new niece for the first time", the insider continued.

"We started the second half good until the goal from Firmino". We score goals and conceded few chances.

From there, the three points should never have been in doubt, but City contrived to allow their conservative opponents back in. OK, two of them were in the cup, but we have two wins, two draws and one defeat which was not a normal defeat.

Going on an unbelievable dribble into the Newcastle box Sane got the better of his defenders, breaking through three challenges before passing to Aguero for the hat-trick.

The Argentina striker then converted a 63rd-minute penalty awarded after Raheem Sterling tumbled in the box following a tug by Javier Manquillo.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez: "When I was talking to Mike Ashley, he told me the takeover would not go through".

Again, Newcastle's defence initially did a good job of repelling them, but the hosts deservedly doubled their lead in the 63rd minute.

Toon boss Benitez said, meanwhile, is expected to park the bus against City, following comments he repeated from earlier in the season, when he said: "When you have a short blanket, if you pull it to your face, your feet are cold, if you cover your feet, your top half is cold".
