Man City vs Newcastle LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from Premier League fixture tonight

Ruben Dias’ first Man City training session

Newcastle, meanwhile, endured a miserable quarter-final defeat by Brentford during the week, which once again incited a wave of fury in Steve Bruce’s direction. The Magpies were hammered 5-2 by Leeds before rescuing a point against 10-man Fulham in the league, but they remain comfortably in mid-table, with 18 points from their 13 games this season. Eventually, though, supporters will demand more ambition from their side, who arrive at the Etihad as firm underdogs and were thrashed 5-0 in their last meeting with City in July. Follow all the action below at the conclusion of Arsenal vs Chelsea:


Man City 2 – 0 Newcastle

67 mins: Joelinton has gone down and wants some treatment so Fernandinho knocks the ball out of play. It looks like a problem with the Newcastle striker’s back but he’s able to walk off the pitch for treatment.

Man City dominated possession in the first half with 75% but they’ll want to convert more chances if they’re going to close this game out.
