De Bruyne returns to steer Man. City to victory over Newcastle

De Bruyne

De Bruyne scored for City

Kevin De Bruyne returned from five months injury to steer Manchester City to a 3-2 victory at Newcastle United on Saturday to move City second on the table.

City had opened the scoring mid-way in the first half. Kyle Walker swung a cross into the box and Bernardo Silva scored a magnificent back-heel goal.

Newcastle equalised nine minutes later. Bruno Guimaraes teed up Alexander Isak inside the box, and he kept his cool to find the top right corner.

Newcastle made it 2-1 in the 37th minute of the match. Anthony Gordon kept his cool and scored a brilliant goal.

In the 63rd minute, Walker sent a killer pass into the box, but Phil Foden could not trick the opposition’s defence and lost possession.

City mounted the pressure for an equaliser but to no avail. They only needed a motivator to unlock Newcastle’s defence and De Bruyne was brought in as a substitute.

That was the tonic City needed. De Bruyne made an immediate impact and equalised for the visitors in the 74th minute.

He went on a mazy run, perfectly slipping past the opposition’s defence. He aimed well and placed a precise effort behind the goalkeeper for a wonderful goal.

One minute into added time, De Bruyne fed the ball to Oscar Bobb who scored as he latched on to a pass inside the penalty box and fired a perfect low shot that went into the middle of the goal and past the goalkeeper.
