Newcastle 2 – 2 Man City



Manchester City’s hopes of defending their Premier League title were dealt another blow when Jonjo Shelvey’s stunning late equaliser earned Newcastle a point at St James’ Park.

City boss Pep Guardiola must have thought his side had won it when Kevin de Bruyne found the net in the 82nd minute with a brilliant long-range effort which went in off the crossbar.

But with two minutes of normal time remaining, home substitute Christian Atsu pulled the ball back for Shelvey, who beat the dive of Ederson.
