The England right back received the ball from Sergio Aguero, took a touch, and fired an angled shot into the bottom corner in the 52nd minute for his first goal in nearly three years.

In his 52nd appearance for the club, Walker netted for the first time in spectacular style by driving a low shot in the corner from 25 yards early in the second half.

Kyle Walker's scored his first Manchester City goal in sensational fashion to hand the Premier League champions a hard-fought 2-1 win over Newcastle United.

Rafael Benitez has had a tough start to the season, picking up just one point from the first three games in the Premier League and being dumped out of the EFL Cup by Nottingham Forest.

Newcastle undermined their bid to stifle City during the opening stages by carelessly coughing up possession in unsafe areas.

Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers arrested on marijuana possession charge, police say
Chip Lewis, Gathers's attorney, released a statement expressing his client's remorse for his actions. Police said they found Gathers to be in possession of marijuana and he was taken to the Frisco Jail.

The issue of Leroy Sane's attitude will not go away either.

Man City: Ederson 6, Walker 8, Stones 7, Laporte 6, Mendy 8, David Silva 7, Fernandinho 7, Mahrez 5, Sterling 8, Jesus 6, Aguero 7. Subs: Gundogan 5, Bernardo Silva 5, Kompany N/A.

8' - GOAL! Man City 1-0 Newcastle: Raheem Sterling with a typical Raheem Sterling goal.

The goal came after Jamaal Lascelles played an terrible pass out from the edge of his own penalty area, enabling Benjamin Mendy to intercept and feed a pass left to Sterling, who cut inside and drilled a shot into the far corner.

Aguero, who scored eight goals in City's last two home games against Newcastle, was held silent on Saturday. It's lazy defending from City, they fail to pick up the run of the Newcastle midfielder as he makes a late surge into the box to poke home Rondon's cross.
