NEWCASTLE, England: Quick goals from Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva saw Manchester City recover from two goals and draw 3-3 with Newcastle United in a head-to-head Premier League match at St James’ Park on Sunday.

Neither side had conceded a goal in the league this season, but Ilkay Gundogan opened the scoring for champions City in the fifth minute, ghosting the Newcastle defense to finish from close range.

Phil Foden could have taken the lead in the 16th minute with Phil Foden attacking down the right, but the chance was wasted when he shot from a tight angle to Haaland rather than square the ball. rice field.

In the 28th minute, Miguel Almiron endured a nervous VAR check after Alain Saint-Maximin’s pinpoint cross into the net.

Saint-Maximan plagued City full-back Kyle Walker and he led Newcastle to a major upset before half-time when he set up Callum Wilson to make it 2-1.

In the 9th minute of the second half, Kieran Trippier’s splendid free kick gave them a 3-1 lead.

But it energized City, with Haaland hitting the post and scoring, then pulling back at the hour mark and Silva making it 3-3 with a superb pass from Kevin De Bruyne.

Newcastle’s challenge seemed to go awry when Trippier was shown a bright red card on a cynical high trip to De Bruyne.

City dominated possession in the final stages but had to settle for a draw, finishing second on seven points, two points behind leaders Arsenal. Newcastle are sixth with five points.
