MAN CITY 2-1 NEWCASTLE
It's all over at the Etihad! City remain on the coattails of Liverpool and Chelsea with their third win of the season, but boy they were made to work for it by an improved Newcastle side. Kyle Walker's wonder strike was the difference in the end after Raheem Sterling's opener was cancelled out by DeAndre Yedlin's first Premier League goal. Stay tuned for highlights!

GOAL! MAN CITY 2-1 NEWCASTLE (Walker, 52)
Manchester City retake the lead thanks to stunning strike from Kyle Walker.

We're all square at the end of what turned out to be a frustrating half of football for the champions. It all started so well when Raheem Sterling capitalised on a defensive error from Jamaal Lascelles to fire City ahead inside eight minutes. But, against the run of play, DeAndre Yedlin powered home the equaliser at the end of a blistering run and Newcastle have looked fairly comfortable since.
45: There will be ONE minute of added time at the Etihad.
44: CLOSE! Mahrez cuts in off of the right and whips a wicked ball into the box which Aguero tries to deflect beyond Dubravka. Thankfully for the Newcastle 'keeper, the ball ricochets straight into his path, allowing him to gather.
43: Walker floats a cross towards Stones but Newcastle stopper Dubravka beats him to it, punching the ball away from danger.
42: Sterling skips away from Lascelles down the left, drives at Yedlin and draws a foul after the Newcastle duo bring him to ground. Can City restore their lead before the break from this free-kick? Walker to deliver...
40: BLOCK! City break with real intent as Aguero is played in down the left. He cuts inside, fashion a yard of space and tries to pick out the far corner, but Fernandez throws his body in the way of the shot.
39: What a difference a goal makes. Newcastle are full of confidence after Yedlin's strike and are starting to play after a difficult first quarter.
35: City look to restore their lead immediately as Jesus wriggles into space on the edge of the area, but his shot is deflected behind for a corner from which Fernandinho steers a shot wide of goal.
GOAL! MAN CITY 1-1 NEWCASTLE (Yedlin, 30)
Newcastle haul themselves level against the run of play as DeAndre Yedlin atones for his own goal last week against Chelsea. Rondon picks up the ball on the left, drives towards the area and drills a great low ball across the face of goal which is met by Yedlin at the end of a lung-busting run. He meets it six yards from goal and rifles a shot past Ederson to spark wild celebrations among the travelling supporters.
MAN CITY 1-0 NEWCASTLE

16: CLOSE! Aguero looks to continue his impressive goalscoring run against Newcastle with a rasping drive from distance, but his effort flashes wide of Dubravka's left-hand upright.

Well that didn't take long, did it? City make an early breakthrough as Raheem Sterling marks his 100th Premier League appearance for the club in style.
