Uncommon journalist reward for Newcastle United – Exhibiting learn how to beat Manchester Metropolis

A uncommon piece of journalist reward for Newcastle United.

This follows Wednesday night time’s victory within the Carabao Cup at St James’ Park.

Sure, all it took for a nationwide journalist to present Newcastle United any reward, was to change into the primary aspect to beat Manchester Metropolis this season in a aggressive match this season.

Certainly, earlier than Wednesday night time, Pep Guardiola’s aspect had gained all eight aggressive matches they’d performed this season and naturally, by no means failed to attain.

Newcastle United not solely successful and protecting a clear sheet, but in addition proscribing the guests to solely two efforts on track all recreation. The primary of these an honest save together with his foot by Nick Pope, the second (and closing) one a protracted vary effort from Grealish that the Newcastle keeper didn’t even have to maneuver for as a way to catch the ball.

‘Manchester Metropolis will be bought at.

Pep Guardiola thinks Newcastle kicked Manchester Metropolis out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night time however a snippet of the play informed a more true story.

Chased throughout the pitch after which subjected to a thumping however truthful sort out by Anthony Gordon, Metropolis midfielder Mateo Kovacic climbed again to his ft with a smile on his face.

If extra golf equipment approached Metropolis matches with the perspective Newcastle confirmed, they might not stroll to the Premier League title fairly so comfortably this yr.’

It was fairly comical how journalist after journalist needed to speak about how this was a case of Manchester Metropolis taking part in a weakened aspect. Contemplating that Newcastle made ten modifications to Man Metropolis’s seven AND the ‘weakened’ guests introduced within the likes of £100m attacker Jack Grealish.

It was nice to see Newcastle United gamers so usually swarming throughout their opponents in that second half, not permitting Manchester Metropolis the form of area and freedom to play that they’re so used to.

No marvel Pep Guardiola made such a present of himself on the touchline, the Man Metropolis boss getting ever extra pissed off as Newcastle bought ever extra on high as that second half progressed.
