This was the first time Newcastle had beaten Manchester City for nine years and the win broke a string of 11 consecutive loses.
Ryan Taylor – showed all his experience tonight
Incredible late goal line clearance and he set up first goal
The bottom line is a young and inexperienced Newcastle side beat money-bags Manchester City as they showed an unbelievable win to win tonight – and that’s exactly what they achieved – all credit to our players tonight – and the manager Alan Pardew.
Newcastle went ahead after just six minutes with a great opportunist goal from Rolando Aarons – and it was Ryan Taylor who challenged for the ball and put it through to Aarons who hit the ball home in one movement with his right foot to shock Manchester City.
That was the first Newcastle goal in the last six game against City.
Manchester City came at Newcastle but Dummett and Armstrong both had decent chances to increase the lead before the break.
It was all hands to the pump as the defended valiantly against the City onslaught but then after 75 minutes a brilliant individual goal from Moussa Sissoko.
That put Newcastle 2-0 and the Frenchman got the ball outside the box and drove past two City players before chipping the ball over the goalkeeper – a wonderful goal from in-form Moussa.
After 86 minutes Ryan Taylor made an incredible clearance off the line as Newcastle were hanging on – and that’s what the lads did though 6 minutes of added time for our best win for a very long time – and three wins on the trot – two away from home.
Every player did their part tonight but none as much as Ryan Taylor – who showed all his experience and how he cleared that ball off the line with five minutes to go well – it was incredible.
This was a man inspired – and he deserves all the accolades he will get for a very successful return to the side.
We may not have the class this season – but our lads work their socks off for the shirt – it was simply an unbelievable performance from them tonight.
Did I mention it was unbelievable? 😀
HOWAY THE LADS!!
