  1. Manchester City 4 - 0 Newcastle

  2. 90+2

    Mancini and Pardew exchange post-match pleasantries, although the former will likely be the happier as his side peg Manchester United's mammoth lead at the top of the table back to 15 points.

  3. 90+1

    Interesting choice of man-of-the-match as the stadium announcer declares Nasri the best player on the pitch for the day, although the Frenchman was involved in much of City's attacking play.

  4. 90

    Sissoko fires a hopeful shot on goal that Hart can comfortably watch drift wide of his left upright.

  5. 89

    Travelling Newcastle fans look to have seen enough as they make their way for the exits.

  6. 88

    Dzeko and Tevez dropping deeper into midfield to fetch the ball and forge ahead on attack with Aguero waiting up front for a possible through ball.

  7. 87

    City keeping play inside their opponents' half of the pitch as they wind the clock down to what will be an emphatic home victory.

  8. 86

    Away goes Toure who one-twos with Aguero and then rushes into the box for the return pass, but he is clattered over in what looks to be a clear penalty. But the linesman's flag is up for offsides and Taylor will fell rather fortunate he got away with no punishment and no spot-kick against his team.

  9. 85

    City taking it down a notch as the match enters the final five minutes of regulation time.

  10. 84

    Elliot prevents Sinclair from making an immediate impact, the Toon 'stopper diving full-length to his left to tip the replacement's goal-bound shot out of bounds.

  11. 83

    A short burst of action for Scott Sinclair who comes on to replace Silva for City.

  12. 82

    Not great play from Anita down the touchline as he ventures a yard or two offsides wit hNewcastle pushing up.

  13. 81

    No luck form the set-piece for the Magpies and it back to building their play from the halfway line yet again.

  14. 80

    Simpson ventures forward and his attempt at getting the Toon on the scoreboard earns a corner-kick.

  15. 79

    Gosling's shot from range is on target, but Hart is up to the task and gathers the ball low with ease.

  16. 78

    City maybe taking a little a bit of breather at the moment and maybe trying to lull Newcastle into a false sense of security.

  17. 77

    Play bogged down in the middle of the park with possession changing over at random.

  18. 76

    Corner-kick for City from the left is cleared by the Toon defence, but one feels there is still another goal in this match from the hosts.

  19. 75

    Changes from both managers has create a little reworking in the formations and the teams look a little disjointed as they try to settle.

  20. 74

    Gael Bigirimana becomes Newcastle's third substitution, coming on for their most attacking player on the day Cabaye.
