Comments:

League position: 19th Vurnon Anita scored his first goal at St James’ Park and ended a personal run of 53 games without scoring. Newcastle United had now lost only one of their last seven home games in the Premier League matches (won three). Moussa Sissoko was booked in the fifth minute of added time in the second half. Rolando Aarons replaced Ayoze Perez in the second minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

League position: 3rd In his 147th appearance, Sergio Aguero had now scored his 100th Premier League goal. Only Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer, in 124 appearances, had reached this milestone in fewer games. He also became the first South American and third non-European (after Dwight Yorke and Didier Drogba) to score 100 goals in Premier League history. Manchester City had now lost only one of their last ten games in all competitions.
