Man City vs Newcastle: Guardiola ready for Benitez’s Chelsea tactics

Leroy Sane Manchester City

Pep Guardiola had to deny speculation that Leroy Sane was left out of his squad for the 2-1 defeat of Newcastle United because of an attitude problem.

The England right back received the ball from Sergio Aguero, took a touch, and fired an angled shot into the bottom corner in the 52nd minute for his first goal in nearly three years.

The Citizens were pushing for for a return to winning ways after they dropped points at newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

Pep Guardiola's side were forcing the issue against a Newcastle side set up to defend at Etihad Stadium and took the lead within the opening 10 minutes through Raheem Sterling's curled effort.

If Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles, restored to the starting lineup after injury, was looking to redeem himself after a reported training ground fracas with Matt Ritchie, the centre back failed miserably.

The goal came after Jamaal Lascelles played an bad pass out from the edge of his own penalty area, enabling Benjamin Mendy to intercept and feed a pass left to Sterling, who cut inside and drilled a shot into the far corner. Sergio Aguero ripped a shot just wide from the edge of the penalty area, while an unmarked Gabriel Jesus headed straight at goalkeeper Martin Dubravka after David Silva's free-kick glanced off Paul Dummett's head. Can we finish it with six out of six wins? However, the left back had been dragged into the middle and Yedlin capitalized by beating the back-tracking Jesus to the ball and converting.

Newcastle proved durable opponents, and equalised after half-an-hour, with DeAndre Yedlin making amends for his own goal that handed Chelsea victory last weekend.

Gabriel Jesus almost extended the lead five minutes later, but his attempt was ruled offside.
