Newcastle United have taken a first-half lead over the reigning Premier League Champions Manchester City.
Bernardo Silva broke the deadlock with an audacious little flick after Kyle Walker’s pass across the six-yard box.
Alexander Isak scored to equalise with a lovely curling effort after Eddie Howe’s side had been dominated by City.
Then Anthony Gordon scored a fantastic goal to give the home side the lead even though it looked like it would be such a difficult finish.

Gordon has had an impressive season for Newcastle United as he has started to show just why Howe spent the money he did on bringing him to the club from Everton.
He got a goal against Liverpool in The Reds’ smash and grab at St James Park near the start of the season but his goal against City is a massive one.
It may stop the rot for Newcastle as they have lost their last three league games with defeats to Liverpool, Nottingham Forest and relegation threatened Luton Town.
Howe has had to cope with several injuries throughout the season which is a reoccurring theme for all sides challenging in Europe in recent seasons.
Newcastle were linked to former Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke in the January transfer window however he came out and denied these claims stating that the club cannot afford to sign anyone.
They were reportedly in the race to sign Kalvin Phillips from Manchester City on loan but they have strong competitions of Italian giants Juventus so they may not be able to bring the midfielder in.
Phillips is on the bench for City against Newcastle but it is unlikely that Pep Guardiola will bring him on as he is seemingly not a fan of the English international who has been linked with a move to Liverpool in the past.
