PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! 2020/21 Premier League champions Manchester City will play their first league game after winning the title on Friday evening, as they travel to St. James' Park to take on Newcastle United. City officially won the 2020/21 Premier League title on Tuesday as a result of Leicester City's win against Manchester United, with Pep Guardiola claiming his third league title in four seasons at the Etihad. City's only injury concern against Newcastle is midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who was also missing against Chelsea, and the Belgian midfielder is unlikely to be risked on Friday, particularly with the Champions League final due to take place later this month. * Click here to subscribe to Level up!

Riyad Mahrez made it 1-0 to City
However, completely against the run of play, Newcastle scored two quick-fire goals to turn the game on its head in a 15-minute period. Just six minutes after City made it 1-0, a brilliant pass from Jonjo Shelvey sent Allan Saint-Maximin clear on goal, with the French striker finishing well past Ederson. And a few minutes later it was 2-1, and the Magpies' second goal was almost a carbon copy of the first, with City unable to deal with Saint-Maximin's pace on the break. It was Miguel Almiron this time who sent the French forward clear for him to finish in at the near post to make it 2-1 to Newcastle.

Despite City dominating the ball for the rest of the first half, Newcastle survived and went into the break with the lead. Pep Guardiola's side were able to control Saint-Maximin much better in the second half, with Newcastle not having another shot on target in the entire match. And after dominating for such a large period, City eventually got back on level terms in the 71st minute, with Ilkay Gundogan finding the net following a good pass from Mahrez. With the game winding down, Guardiola threw on Sergio Aguero for Gabriel Jesus, and the Argentine did what he did best.

Three minutes before the end of normal time, despite being surrounded by four Newcastle defenders, Aguero cut inside and from just outside the box, curled an effort into the far corner to win the game for City.
