Welcome to Sportstar’s highlights from the 2023 Premier League game between Manchester City and Newcastle United.

  • August 20, 2023 02:28
    Full-Time MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    The final whistle is blown and City start with two wins out of two in the Premier League season. Julian Alvarez’s stunning strike from the edge of the box was the difference between the two sides. Foden was the best player on the pitch, constantly creating chances from his slightly deeper role.

    Newcastle had control of the ball for a significant phase of play but no real scoring opportunities were created. City go level on points with Brighton at the top of the PL table.

  • August 20, 2023 02:25

    Kovacic with the chance to move forward towards the box but Guimaraes brings him down. Free kick City.

  • August 20, 2023 02:23

    Five minutes of stoppage time at the end of the second half. Newcastle without control of possession though to really create a chance.

  • August 20, 2023 02:21

    Foden with a chance from the edge of the box. He cuts in and shoots but it is blocked by the defence.

  • August 20, 2023 02:18
    85’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    City mainting possession much better over the last five minutes. Alvarez dropping deep to help his side in the defensive side as well.

  • August 20, 2023 02:14
    80’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Newcastle still in the game as it continues to hunt for an equaliser. It has continued to gain more control over the last few minutes. City’s counters are being dealt with well by the centre-back pairing.

  • August 20, 2023 02:09

    Excellent play from Anderson and Almiron down the right, but the cross in is too high and goes over the head of Barnes.

  • August 20, 2023 02:07
    74’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Grealish earns a free-kick on the left flank off Trippier. Foden crosses it in but Trippier is there to clear it.

  • August 20, 2023 02:03

    What a chance for Newcastle! Wilson stole the ball from Rodri and it was momentarily a 3 on 1 but Gvardiol did well to force Wilson wide and Barnes shot is easily pouched by Ederson. Guimaraes the latest to be booked.

  • August 20, 2023 02:02
    69’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Grealish goes down in pain after Schar’s challenge. Referee doesn’t give a foul and City has to kick the ball away to tend to him.

  • August 20, 2023 01:59

    Almiron finds Guimaraes in space, but he can’t get power into the shot and it tamely goes behind for a goal kick.

    Wilson replaces Isak and Anderson replaces Tonali.

  • August 20, 2023 01:57
    65’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Haaland gets more purchase on the shot this time, from the right of the goal, but it is straight at Pope’s feet and he clears.

  • August 20, 2023 01:56

    Newcastle continue to press hard but it is City creating the chances. Foden finds Haaland again and he can’t get it sweetly on his foot. Bounces past the post for a goal-kick.

  • August 20, 2023 01:52
    59’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Foden almost puts Haaland through on goal. Schar gets a brilliant tackle in and the ball ricochets off the striker for a goalkick.

  • August 20, 2023 01:50

    Not the best news for Newcastle as Barnes is shown a yellow within minutes of coming on.

  • August 20, 2023 01:48
    55’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Joelinton also seems to be in some pain after his tackle on Foden. Sean Longstaff replaces him on the pitch.

  • August 20, 2023 01:46

    Joelinton goes into the book for a cynical foul on Phil Foden. Dias also rolling in pain after Gordon’s challenge. He’s already on a yellow card. Barnes getting ready on the touchline to replace him.

  • August 20, 2023 01:44
    51’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Newcastle try to go the long ball route, trying to find the run of Isak. Ederson comes out of the box and heads it away from danger.

  • August 20, 2023 01:42

    Newcastle has another chance as Gordon spins and shoots from the left of the goal, tried to do it all in one motion but doesn’t get the connection he needs.

  • August 20, 2023 01:40
    47’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Isak goes down in the box and appeals, but the referee flags for off-side. Looks like Isak went down too easily there.

  • August 20, 2023 01:38
    Second half begins

    The visitors get us underway and the goal scorer goes into the book early for a foul on Tonali.

  • August 20, 2023 01:29
    Half-time at the Ettihad
  • August 20, 2023 01:21

    Man City lead at the break. Newcastle has pressed well but hasn’t created any goalscoring opportunities of note. Foden has played well for City dropping in and creating chances.

    He was involved in the build-up to Alvarez’s opening goal as well, the Argentine finding the corner with a sublime finish. Work to do for Newcastle if it has to comeback into the game.

  • August 20, 2023 01:21

    Almiron and Tripper combine well to get a cross in from the right. The cross finds Gordon but he can’t get it under control and the defence clears. Was probably better off trying to hit it first time.

  • August 20, 2023 01:18

    Three minutes of stoppage time added at the end of the half.

  • August 20, 2023 01:18

    Walker with a steaming run down the right side, the ball is switched to Grealish down the left and his cross is cut out for a corner.

  • August 20, 2023 01:15
    41’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    Chance!! Haaland’s first real chance of the game. He doesn’t get the necessary connection and the ball goes wide of the far post. Ederson’s pinpoint kick getting this attack going for the hosts.

  • August 20, 2023 01:11
    37’ MCI 1 - 0 NEW

    A quick check for handball from VAR after the ball strikes Kovacic’s arm. Was not in an unnatural position though and play continues. Newcastle wresting back some control after the goal.

  • August 20, 2023 01:07

    Sandro Tonali is shown a yellow. Foden was running at goal and the Italian nudges him to bring him down.

  • August 20, 2023 01:04
    31’ Alvarez scores!!

    Goal!!! Alvarez finds space at the edge of the box and he lets fly into the top left corner. City takes the lead! Once again it was Foden who found some space between the lines to create the chance.

    MCI 1 - 0 NEW

  • August 20, 2023 01:03
    30’ MCI 0 - 0 NEW

    A barrage of shots from City, all blocked by the Newcastle defence. None looked extremely threatening though.

  • August 20, 2023 01:01

    Foden finds Alvarez who lets in a low cross from the left, the defender is there to clear the danger.

  • August 20, 2023 01:00

    Better control from City since the yellow card. Rodri finds Walker’s run into the box from the right side touchline but he cannot keep it in play.

  • August 20, 2023 00:57
    24’ MCI 0 - 0 NEW

    Yellow Card for Gordon for an alleged stamp on Dias’ calf. Did catch him but it looked accidental.

  • August 20, 2023 00:54

    More end to end from both teams. Newcastle finding some control over the ball in the last five minutes. Joelinton has a shot from just outside the box, but it is blocked by the defence.

  • August 20, 2023 00:51
    17’ MCI 0 - 0 NEW

    Gordon and Almiron pressing high up the pitch for the visitors. Gordon does well to put a ball into the box, but it was quite far away from any of his teammates

  • August 20, 2023 00:47

    Akanji tries to curl one into the top corner from outside the box. Doesn’t get the execution right as it flies over the bar.

  • August 20, 2023 00:45
    11’ MCI 0 - 0 NEW

    Good press from the Newcastle forwards forcing City back to its keeper. Rodri does well to release Grealish but the defence is in place to deal with the danger.

    Foden plays Haaland through after Newcastle lose the ball in midfield but Haaland can’t take it in his stride.

  • August 20, 2023 00:42

    Grealish and Walker holding the width for the defending champions. Foden dropping into the midfield from the right, finding space between the midfield and defence.

  • August 20, 2023 00:39
    6’ MCI 0 - 0 NEW

    Newcastle with its first attack of the game. Trippier and Almiron double up on the right wing but the flag goes up again.

    Back the Ettihad
  • August 19, 2023 23:28

    Manchester City will be ready for its Premier League game with Newcastle United on Saturday despite having played in the UEFA Super Cup in Athens on Wednesday, manager Pep Guardiola said.

    After its penalty shootout win over Sevilla, the City manager sarcastically thanked the Premier League for arranging the Newcastle game on Saturday.

    Yet he said his side would be ready for the match at the Etihad Stadium, despite obvious fatigue.

    “Of course we are ready. We need these type of challenges. We face difficulties with the injuries we have, the calendar. This is the challenge we have, to take a step forward,” Guardiola told reporters on Friday.

    “People went to sleep at 4am in Greece when they played at 10pm. Arrive, recover with 35 or 40 degrees in Greece. Come back, arrive here late, and then it’s this game, tomorrow’s game, today we cannot train,” the manager said.
