But Newcastle rode through their gears, turned the tide and in a flash they had equalized via Miguel Almiron after some fantastic work from Allan Saint-Maximin. Yet that wasn’t enough as the Magpies went ahead just before the break with Saint-Maximin producing more tekkers, beating City players at ease, and then he found Callum Wilson on the right. The Englishman made absolutely no mistake as he produced a lovely first-touch before guiding it past Ederson.

And yet, that wasn’t the pick of the bunch as less than ten minutes into the second-half and Saint-Maximin, who has tore through City’s defense tonight, won a free-kick and up stepped Kieran Trippier. The Englishman had take three free-kicks for the Magpies before this and scored twice, which was why St James’ Park went silent. But then, Trippier delicately stroked the ball into Ederson’s near post and still managed to send it beyond the Brazilian as the ground exploded with joy.

Yet that wasn't enough as less than five minutes later and Erling Haaland had brought City back within one goal via a lovely volley at the far post before Kevin De Bruyne produced arguably what will, and should, go down as the assist of the season. The Belgian sliced Newcastle's defense apart with one single pass and handed Bernardo Silva a clear chance at goal, which the Portuguese international took and brought City back on level terms. A sensational game of football!!

That's a sensational strike!!

Kevin De Bruyne's mind at work!!
