Pic Special: Newcastle 1 Man City 3

United matched the Premier League champions for much of their top flight fixture on Saturday afternoon, but ended up on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline.

After some early Magpies pressure, City broke the deadlock through front man Sergio Aguero, and after surviving a couple more scares went on to double their advantage through midfielder Javi Garcia shortly before half-time.

Demba Ba halved the deficit with a header early in the second period and Newcastle pushed on for an equaliser, with Papiss Cisse spurning a great chance to draw level.

And Alan Pardew's side were made to pay as Yaya Toure netted from close range late on to put the result beyond any doubt.

Capturing it all for nufc.co.uk was Club Photographer Ian Horrocks.
