Match Highlights View More Below

City recorded a sixth successive Premier League victory as they beat Newcastle United 2-0 to return to the top of the table.

An early goal from Edin Dzeko and second deep into injury time from Alvaro Negredo, settled a feisty affair during which Samir Nasri was stretchered off with what looked like a nasty knee injury.

Joe Hart and Aleks Kolarov in particular were excellent throughout as the Blues extended their unbeaten run to 15 matches against a pumped up Magpies and recorded a first clean sheet in the league away from home since September. 

With so many teams around the Blues winning on Saturday, it was imperative that Manuel Pellegrini’s side maintained their magnificent form of late that had seen City unbeaten since mid-November.
