Manchester City defeated Newcastle thanks to Phil Foden's outstanding goal, keeping pressure on Premier League leaders Arsenal. After 15 minutes, Foden scored, slipping in from the right and fending off two challenges before having Sven Botman deflect his shot into the goal.
When City's substitute Bernardo Silva slid the ball home to put the game out of Newcastle's reach midway through the second half, they had responded well and were creating plenty of issues. After the victory, City closes the gap on Arsenal, who play Bournemouth later on Saturday.
Newcastle stays in fifth place, four points behind Tottenham. Although the outcome will be frustrating for Newcastle manager Eddie Howe, who was hoping his team would recover from last weekend's Carabao Cup final loss, there were still several positives in the team's loss. As Erling Haaland set up Silva to score from the edge of the box to make it 2-0 for his team, they were ahead. Newcastle, who have now won only one of their previous eight league games, will attempt to salvage their faltering season.
