Newcastle Park The Bus And Trail Manchester City 1-0 At The Half


As expected, Manchester City came out on the front foot to start the match with much of the play occurring in the Newcastle end. The visitors also launched twelve shots in the first twenty-five minutes.

Newcastle actually got the first shot on target through an Andy Carroll effort in the 13th minute that was easily collected by Claudio Bravo. However, Manchester City soon started to threaten Karl Darlow, forcing him into a couple of saves before the water break.

The back five were very well organized and held their shape. However, Newcastle were pegged back, inviting far too much pressure from City.

While it was coming, conceding a penalty on a needless push by Fabian Schar on Gabriel Jesus was just deflating. Kevin De Bruyne converted the subsequent penalty as Karl Darlow dove the wrong way.

It’s been complete domination by the visitors who had 86% of the possession and outshot Newcastle 16 to 2. Allan Saint-Maximin has also been off this evening. He squandered possession numerous times in the half.

Bruce will have to try something different in the second half to have a chance of advancing to the semi-finals. While the lads held up well under immense pressure, they’ve given Manchester City too much time on the ball and shown nothing going forward.

    Can we never set up like the first 45 ever again

    We’ve seen it so many times and it works once in twenty attempts.

    More often than not we keep them at bay and then either a lucky ricochet or daft mistakes costs us. Please, never again. It’s anti-football and no team is so superior to another to warrant doing it.

    Almiron off. Biggest contrast between pre and post break of all our players.

    Andy off, would have liked to see him stay on with more support.

    Ah, Gayle man. That’s the chance.

    Always gets one when he’s on the pitch. Just hasn’t taken enough of them since his return.

    Even if having a mare I’d leave Almiron on. Must be one of the fittest players in the league and keeps going, doesn’t let his head go down.
