Man City v Newcastle United – August 19th 2013

Man City v Newcastle United – August 19th 2013

David Silva

New Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini enjoyed a dream Premier League start as his side swept past 10-man Newcastle with a superb display.

City began at a frantic pace with an energised Edin Dzeko crossing for David Silva’s early opener.

Sergio Aguero steered a shot past Tim Krul for City’s second before Steven Taylor saw red for a swipe at Aguero.

Yaya Toure curled in a free-kick after the break before Samir Nasri scored late on as City cruised to victory.

It was a resounding performance by an irrepressible-looking City, with summer signings Fernandinho and Jesus Navas handed starts and looking accomplished throughout. Fellow debutant Alvaro Negredo also came on in the second half and was denied a goal after being ruled marginally offside.

Indeed, had Krul not been in inspired form, the margin of victory could have been even greater for Pellegrini’s side, who have won their last eight games against the Magpies.

Although the new additions adjusted well, it was Dzeko who was City’s outstanding performer as he created two goals and peppered the Newcastle goal with several efforts.

City have been the biggest spenders in the close season, shelling out nearly £87m on four new players. And their performance at a buoyant Etihad Stadium will give their Premier League title rivals plenty to consider with the transfer window shutting on 2 September.

In contrast, Newcastle suffered a nightmare start to their campaign, and the mood of Newcastle manager Alan Pardew will hardly have improved after Arsenal made a £10m bid for midfielder Yohan Cabaye, who was left out of the squad.

The Newcastle fan are suggesting, in no uncertain terms, that their club should spend some money if they want to improve. Will their coffers be boosted by Yohan Cabaye’s departure though?
