Manchester City beat Newcastle United 2-1 in Premier League tie

Both Liverpool and Chelsea have won their first four games of the season and occupy the top two spots in the league.

Pep Guardiola insists he is happy with Leroy Sane's attitude after leaving the winger out of his squad for Manchester City's 2-1 win against Newcastle on Saturday.

That was to be the case as Newcastle struggled to get a hold of possession as City returned to winning ways. Salomon Rondon found space down the left as he took on Kenedy's pass, before crossing low for Yedlin to slot in his first Premier League goal.

If Newcastle's captain Jamaal Lascelles, restored to the starting line-up after injury, was looking to redeem himself after a reported training ground bust-up with Matt Ritchie, he failed miserably.

It didn't long for City to break the deadlock as Raheem Sterling cut onto his right foot before burying the ball into the far corner after seven minutes.

However, recent data obtained by the spacecraft "Juno" indicate that the interior of Jupiter can be way more complicated. The revelation was stirring given that the team's experiment could have easily failed.

That is usually the signal for the floodgates to open, but for all their control the hosts unusually lacked a cutting edge. Sergio Aguero ripped a shot just wide from the edge of the penalty area, while an unmarked Gabriel Jesus headed straight at goalkeeper Martin Dubravka after David Silva's free-kick glanced off Paul Dummett's head.

Newcastle United wanted to pick at-least a point in this match after losing their last home game, but they met a more determined Manchester City side who drew their last encounter.

However, the France worldwide had been dragged into the middle and Yedlin capitalised on the wide open space in front of him to charge forward from the halfway line, past the back-tracking Jesus, and convert from close range.

City's next outing is two weeks today at home to promoted side Fulham.

City weren't at their best.
