  • The full-time whistle goes and that late Aguero goal takes Man City to the top of the (very) early Premier League table. Newcastle competed well throughout the game and were pushing for an equaliser to Silva's first-half opener, but it is City who prevailed in a hard-fought clash.

  • GOAL! Aguero seals victory for Man City. The Argentine substitute finds himself one-on-one with compatriot Coloccini and sues his pace to get off a shot from a narrow angle. Krul makes the save but it rebounds nicely for Aguero and he tucks away a neat finish to make it 2-0.

  • Sissoko cannot keep his first-time shot down from the edge of the area following another swift Newcastle attack.

  • Four minute of stoppage-time have been signalled so there is still a chance for Newcastle to retrieve a point.

  • Newcastle are really starting to apply the pressure in the closing stages as they seek an equaliser, but Man City continue to hold firm.

  • Fernando's name goes into the book as he brings down Cabella in midfield.

  • Perez is released through the middle for Newcastle and turns inside his defender skilfully, but his shot is deflected agonisingly wide as Fernando does well to cover. That is as close as the home side have come to scoring.

  • Newcastle's final change sees Perez come on for Riviere, who is applauded warmly for his efforts today.

  • Colback floats a decent free-kick into the area from a central position and Sissoko tries to glance it on, but the ball dribbles wide.

  • Dzeko, who has been excellent today, is replaced by Aguero for the final stages.

  • Riviere has been a willing runner all afternoon and he chases another seemingly lost cause, forcing Hart to hurry out of his area and make the clearance.

  • Riviere's cross from the right is blocked by Kolarov, but he was again lacking support and had nobody in the centre to really aim for.

  • Pellegrini is keen to protect his lead as he replaces Nasri with the more defensive-minded Milner.

  • Janmaat is cautioned following a late challenge on Fernandinho in midfield.

  • There is a big cheer for the vanishing spray as Man City's defensive wall is kept at the required distance, but it does not help Cabella much as he still blasts his free-kick low into their bodies.

  • Kompany is shown a yellow card for obstruction as Colback plays it past him. The Man City skipper appeared really just to hold his ground and is upset by referee Atkinson's decision.

  • Newcastle make another change as Aarons comes on for his Premier League debut in place of Gouffran.

  • Dzeko is hauled down by Sissoko on the edge of the box to give Man City a free-kick. Toure steps up and hits it well, but just over the crossbar.

  • Fernandinho replaces Jovetic for the closing stages as Pellegrini tries to shore things up for City.

  • There will be tired legs out there as players become accustomed again to the pace of the Premier League after a summer break, and the tempo of the game has just slowed a bit in the last few minutes.
