Here is our full report of the game tonight, and Newcastle played very well for 90 minutes and held Manchester City to a 0-0 draw, but then two goals in extra time were enough to put the visitors into the quarter-final of the Capital One Cup, and City now have a game at Leicester City, the only non Premier League team left in the competition.
Mike Williamson in action in the first half
Newcastle kicked off against what was essentially a second eleven for Manchester City, and the lads started this game a lot quicker than we did at Sunderland on Sunday.
After eight minutes a great knock-on header from Shola Ameobi had Cisse hitting the ball just wide of the post, but it was a decent chance for the Senegal striker.
On 10 minutes Negredo came on for the injured Jovetic, who seemed to have a calf injury, which meant Pellegrini could only bring a couple of his top players in the second half, if he needed to.
Newcastle were playing well, but after 25 minutes Manchester City attacked down their left wing, and there was no sign of Debuchy, who had been caught up field but Newcastle managed to clear the cross into the box.
And then on 30 minutes Shola Ameobi, who was showing up well had a good shot that Pantilimon saved well down to his left, to put the ball out for a corner.
And then two minutes later Shola had the ball into the net, but he was offside, but Papiss Cisse had a good chance and he really should have had the ball in the back of the net.
But Cisse shoot wide and found Ameobi half a yard offside as the Nigerian had the ball in the back of the net – that was a very good chance missed.
Half time came and Newcastle had been the better side, and should really have been ahead on the two or three decent chances we had, with Cheick Tiote and Vurnon Anita both having good games in central midfield for the Magpies, the back four looking comfortable with Haidara showing up well art left back – this lad’s a good player in the making.
Paul Dummett came on for Haidara who was seen limping of at half time.
City were upping their game and two good clearances by Yanga-Mbiwa as he headed a dangerous cross for a corner, and them made a s great interception of a good through ball.
Sissoko then had a decent chance after an hour, but he blazed over the bar from just outside the penalty area.
A bad mistake by Krul almost gifted Manchester City a goal as he was covering the ball as it went out for a corner but Navas got the ball and put it back to former Newcastle winger James Milner who hit the ball just over the cross-bar.
After 67 minutes Yohan Cabaye came on for Shola Ameobi, who had a good game.
City were starting to press Newcastle and after 78 minutes Negredo had a chance and Krul only just clawed his chip shot away for a corner.
On 80 minutes Ben Arfa came on for Mike Williamson, which seemed an odd change.
A decent shot by Papiss Cisse was easily saved by the goalkeeper after 83 minutes.
Then Yoan Gouffran had a wonderful chance to win the game for Newcastle, when a Cabaye cross came into the box and he headed the ball just wide from six yards out – and he should have scored.
The full time whistle blew and the game went into extra time,
After 99 minutes Manchester City went ahead when a good run down the left wing saw Edin Dzeko cross into the box and Negredo easily tapped the ball home past Krul, to break the deadlock.
And then after 104 minutes Dzeko was through the middle and he rounded Tim Krul to put he ball into the back of the net, and the game looked over for Newcastle, as City penetrated the Newcastle defense twice in just five minutes, as they raised the level of their game.
And although Newcastle tried to come back and Ben Arfa had a shot kicked off the line by Lescott, for the 13th time in the last 15 games against Manchester City we ended up on the losing side.
And we now have only a few days to recover from this tough game, before we have to face Chelsea.
