English Premier League Report: Manchester City v Newcastle United 01 September 2018

Germany global Sane was missing from City's matchday squad as goals from Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker secured a 2-1 victory that moved the champions to within two points of leaders Liverpool and Chelsea.

Manchester City were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves last weekend but have the chance to return to winning ways at home to Newcastle on Saturday in the Premier League.

Manchester City winger Leroy Sane reportedly faces an uncertain future at the Etihad Stadium after being dropped by Pep Guardiola for Saturday's meeting with Newcastle United.

In his 52nd appearance for the club, Walker netted for the first time in spectacular style by driving a low shot in the corner from 25 yards early in the second half.

Newcastle have taken one point from their opening four fixtures, although a trio of 2-1 defeats to Tottenham, Chelsea and City could leave Rafael Benitez ruing his luck.

The Magpies captain missed the Chelsea game with a rumoured ankle injury before further reports confirmed the former Nottingham Forest man had been involved in bust-ups with both manager Rafa Benitez and teammate Matt Ritchie. With such a formidable attack, the hosts were still largely wasteful in front of goal.

How to watch Manchester City vs. Newcastle in the United Kingdom. Unforgivable from Lascelles as his casual pass gifts City possession in a unsafe area. It's lazy defending from City, they fail to pick up the run of the Newcastle midfielder as he makes a late surge into the box to poke home Rondon's cross. Aguero, in space on the break, produced a cross from which Fernandinho and then David Silva, twice, were denied by brilliant Dubravka blocks to keep the score down to 2-1.
