Pic Special: Newcastle 0 Man City 2 (AET)

Newcastle United bowed out of the Capital One Cup at the fourth round stage, after a 2-0 extra-time defeat against Manchester City at St. James' Park on Wednesday.

Front pair Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko struck for the visitors in a six-minute spell, to shatter the Magpies' hopes of a quarter-final spot.

The result was harsh on Alan Pardew's side, who were excellent throughout and arguably created the better chances of the night, but were made to pay for their spurned opportunities by City's extra-time rally.

Papiss Cisse, Yoan Gouffran and Vurnon Anita all threatened, while visiting goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon saved well to deny the impressive Shola Ameobi. And when United finally did beat the big Romanian stopper, Ameobi's tap-in was correctly flagged offside.

City looked more dangerous as the game wore on, however, and Negredo, James Milner and Micah Richards went close in normal time before Negredo sidefooted in to break the deadlock early in the additional half-an-hour.

The goal knocked the stuffing out of the hosts and Dzeko took advantage, rounding Tim Krul to net their second and put the Citizens in the last eight of the tournament.
