Man City set a pair of Premier League records in Newcastle hammering

Manchester City’s comprehensive victory over Newcastle United this evening saw the Citizens set a pair of Premier League records.

City run riot

Pep Guardiola’s men welcomed the Magpies to the Etihad a short time ago.

City headed into the clash in search of a bounce-back performance and result, having fallen to a shock defeat at the hands of Southampton last time out.

As such, it came as little surprise when, aided by a weakened Newcastle XI, the Sky Blues simply blew Steve Bruce’s outfit out of the water.

An utterly dominant performance eventually saw City emerge with a 5-0 victory.

Gabriel Jesus put the Manchester giants on their way inside 10 minutes, before Riyad Mahrez quickly added a 2nd.

Federico Fernandez’s unfortunate own goal then essentially put City out of sight on the hour mark, before further strikes from David Silva and Raheem Sterling rounded out a comfortable evening’s work for Guardiola and co.
