  • Manchester City 4 - 0 Newcastle

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • 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.

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

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