  1. Thanks for joining me today, stay with us for a full match report and all the post-match reaction.

  2. Roberto Mancini's men are now three points clear of United, who still have to play Swansea later today. City know victory over QPR at home next Sunday will secure their first top-flight crown since 1968.

  3. Webb blows the final whistle! Man City have one hand on the Premier League trophy thanks to two goals from Yaya Toure.

  4. 90+2

    Aguero looks to get away again but is denied by Gutierrez and Coloccini.

  5. 90+1

    Another good save from Hart as he is in the right place at the right time to pluck Ameobi's shot out of the air.

  6. 90

    Three additional minutes will be played.

  7. 90

    Good save from Hart to deny Ba.

  8. 89

    City break from a Newcastle corner through Aguero. He holds the ball up and then feeds De Jong, who passes it on to Clichy on the left of the box. He takes his time and finds Toure, who passes it over Krul from close range.

  9. 89

    GOAL FOR MAN CITY!!!! Toure again!

  10. 88

    Superb block from Richards to get in the way of Ameobi's goalbound shot from the edge of the area.

  11. 88

    Aguero fires a cross into the box towards Dzeko, but Ameobi is back to help out his defence and gets in a crucial block.

  12. 87

    Nerves jangling in the City box as Gutierrez's cross is headed back across the face by Ba but Ameobi cannot get to the ball.

  13. 86

    City make their final switch as David Silva makes way for Micah Richards.

  14. 84

    Narrowly wide from the corner as Dzeko gets to the ball first but puts it past the near post.

  15. 84

    CITY GO CLOSE AGAIN!!! Aguero plays Toure clean through, but he slips at the vital moment as he rounds Krul, with Aguero's follow up then tipped over by the goalkeeper.

  16. 82

    Newcastle's final change with Ryan Taylor on for Tiote.

  17. 82

    Silva swings over a free-kick from out on the right flank and Toure glances his header narrowly wide.

  18. 80

    Now Ferguson is booked for a late challenge on Silva. The clearance went to Aguero, who wanted an advantage played as he was clear.

  19. 79

    Zabaleta booked after clattering into Ferguson. Cynical from the City man who had been beaten all ends up.

  20. 79

    Newcastle go close, with Cisse heading narrowly wide of the target after good play from Ameobi.
