In the end the result of 2-0 looked a comfortable win for Manchester City, but it was anything but that, with Newcastle pressing City after the first 20 minutes after Dzeko had put City ahead after only 8 minutes.
Yoan Gouffran in action today
But before half time Cheick Tiote had a wonderful goal disallowed in controversial circumstances, as the referee first gave the goal, and then after consultation with a linesman disallowed it – apparently because Gouffran was offside.
However, he was hardly interfering with the play as the ball rocketed into the net and gave Joe Hart no chance at all.
And this will be the main talking point of the game, as the officials have again made a terrible decision that seems to favor a top club.
Newcastle played very well today, but it’s still our third defeat in a row in the league, and the third time we haven’t been able to score in a Premier League game, , and the third time in a row we have been beaten at St. James’ Park.
