Newcastle vs Man City result: Player ratings as Jonjo Shelvey deals huge blow in title race
The Magpies inflicted a huge blow on City’s hopes in the title race
The 2-2 draw at St James’ Park could leave Pep Guardiola’s side as many as 11 points adrift by the end of the weekend, with Liverpool facing Brighton later today.
Raheem Sterling had given City the lead in a lethargic first half before Jetro Willems cancelled out the goal just three minutes later.
The game became more frenetic in the second half as City chased victory and Kevin De Bruyne delivered with a thunderous strike from the edge of the area that smashed in off the underside of the crossbar.
However, Shelvey’s pinpoint free-kick left City stunned just as the game ticked over into stoppage time. Check out our player ratings from the game below:
