Two top-shelf goals by Kevin De Bruyne and Jonjo Shelvey within six minutes of each other to seal a superb result for Newcastle and a damaging one for Manchester City. Entertaining game and quite the ending— Melissa Reddy (@MelissaReddy_) November 30, 2019

City in a real rough patch. Not performing anywhere near as well as they did last season. If Liverpool win today, very difficult for them to close the gap.— Jack Sear (@JackSear) November 30, 2019
Last season City dropped points away to Newcastle and Liverpool failed to capitalise at Anfield. Absolutely have to make it count today.— Joel Rabinowitz (@joel_archie) November 30, 2019
