Newcastle 3-3 Manchester City: Match Summary
(Reuters) – Early goals from Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva helped Manchester City bounce back from two goals down to draw 3-3 with Newcastle United in a heartbreaking Premier League clash at St James’ Park on Sunday.
Neither team had conceded a league goal this season, but Ilkay Gündogan opened the scoring for champions City in the fifth minute, ghosting and catching the Newcastle defense flat-footed before finishing at close range.
The home team equalized thanks to Miguel Almirón in the 28th minute as he sent an accurate cross from Allan Saint-Maximin into the net before suffering a nervous VAR check which allowed the goal to stand.
Newcastle looked set to cause a huge upheaval when they left a goal through Callum Wilson before half-timeand a superb free-kick from Kieran Trippier nine minutes after the break put them 3-1 ahead.
It brought City to life, however, with Haaland hits a post before scoring on the hour mark and Silva converted a glorious pass from Kevin De Bruyne to make it 3-3.
City dominated possession in the closing stages but had to settle for a draw which left them second in the table with seven points, two behind leaders Arsenal. Newcastle are sixth with five points.
