In a captivating encounter at St James’ Park, Kevin De Bruyne stole the spotlight, scoring a masterful goal and providing an assist as Manchester City secured a pulsating 3-2 victory over Newcastle United. This win marks the Cityzens' first triumph in three visits to St James’ Park.

The early minutes saw an offside goal from Sean Longstaff, leaving Ederson injured in the collision. Despite a mistake from Longstaff going unpunished, Pep Guardiola’s side quickly found their rhythm, with Bernardo Silva missing the target before Kyle Walker's cross met an exquisite flick from Silva for the opener in the 26th minute.

City continued to dominate, with Silva's impressive effort tipped onto the woodwork by Nick Pope. However, two outstanding goals from Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon turned the tide, putting Newcastle ahead.

Determined to claw back, City pressed forward, with Julian Alvarez and Phil Foden denied by Martin Dubravka. In the 69th minute, the return of Kevin De Bruyne proved crucial as he swiftly ended the frustrations, slotting a well-placed shot through Fabian Schar's legs.

As the clock ticked down, De Bruyne's unwavering conviction shone through, setting up fellow substitute Oscar Bobb for an equally impressive goal. The victory marks Man City's sixth consecutive win in all competitions.

Despite a valiant display, Newcastle has now lost four consecutive league matches. De Bruyne's comeback and City's resilience in this thrilling clash highlight their determination to maintain their winning streak.
