With City in possession of the ball throughout, it took Newcastle until the sixth minute of the second half to score The hosts were provoked even more, however, and four minutes later they took a 2-0 lead

A concerted attack that flowed across the field ended when Newcastle defender Federico Fernandez was only able to deflect a cross from Joao Cancelo into the path of Ferran Torres, who scored with an easy finish

Torres, who missed some other good chances that night, finished in 77 Replaced minute by Sergio Aguero minutes after his move he forced an excellent save against Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow, but when City led to the victory there were no more goals

While City’s impressive performance brought them to 26 points after 14 games, Guardiola remained cautious about the team’s title prospects in an upside-down season, with teams also grappling with issues brought about by the COVID caused 19 pandemic

“We are far from the top. We were 10 last week in the table, the whole season is up and down, there are strange results for everyone, this season you have to be calm in the good and bad moments, “Guardiola, whose team will travel to second-placed Everton on Monday, told reporters. p>

“That is the pace that we have to play Today our positional play was perfect, unfortunately we couldn’t score more goals, but it’s a good result and three more points

“We have another game in Goodison Park in 45 hours. Tomorrow players will have to regenerate and prepare in one day. This pandemic puts us in an extreme situation, but this is how England likes it, so we accept it”
