Newcastle draw with Man city
An early kick off against Manchester city was this Saturdays treat and live on BT Sport. This game had defeat written all over it but how wrong that turned out to be.
The game started as expected with city taking the lead in the 22nd minute from a goal by Sterling. That to me was just the start of things going by badly wrong.
Willems in the 25th minute evened the scores back up to my surprise and half time came with a 1-1 score.
In the 82nd minute, Man city broke ahead again by a goal from De Bruyne which I thought would have killed off the game with only 8 minutes left and felt too little time to get back anything. Shelvey however saved the game in the 88th minute and drew us level to 2-2 and held on for a well deserved point against Manchester city.
Well done lads!!
Will Newcastle climb to 9th tonight against Aston villa?
Tonight’s game is away to Aston villa and a chance to climb the table to 9th.
Looking at statistics, Newcastle have came out with either a win or at the very least, a draw when looking at historic results against villa. With that said, Aston villa who have recently came back up to the premiership from being promoted will be out to try and claw some points to stay in the top flight.
If Newcastle can catch Aston villa on a counter attack and avoid making silly defensive mistakes then I believe it’s ours for the taking. If Newcastle can somehow win this match then as mentioned, this will lift us to 9th in the table which was last seen in the 17/18 season breifly.
