Minute   Description
120' Negredo runs back with the ball and eventually draws a foul from Debuchy, giving City the chance to waste more time and close the game out.
119' Y. Cabaye gets yellow.
Into the last minute, then, and it's rather empty and quiet inside the stadium. City have the ball and are just running down the clock.
118' Sissoko does really well to track back and dispossess Dzeko after a sloppy touch, but the hosts don't rush to counter. It's spread wide to Ben Arfa, who gets to the by-line but fires his cross too hard and it goes out for a throw.
117' JUST WIDE FROM SILVA!! Dzeko advances towards the box and flicks the ball to Silva, who works the ball on to his left with some excellent footwork, before driving a shot past Krul's upright.
116' M. Debuchy gets yellow.
Negredo charges forward down the left but is taken out by Debuchy - who was still retreating from the previous attack - and the Newcastle man goes into the book.
115' Sissoko cross from the left and Debuchy does well to win a header at the far post, but Lescott is there again to head away.
114' Just over five minutes left on Tyneside. Ben Arfa could've set up an interesting finale but it's now looking too far back for Newcastle.
113' OFF THE LINE!! That nearly made things interesting! Sissoko fires in a cross from the right and it comes out to the far post for Ben Arfa, who hits a sweet left-footed volley across goal, but Lescott is there to clear from behind his goalkeeper and maintain their two-goal lead.
112' The stands are rapidly emptying inside St James' Park. The fans seem to have resigned too. Newcastle have possession but are taking their time.
111' Sissoko plays the ball into Cisse on the edge of the box, and the striker tries to turn and shoot but Lescott is tight on him and manages to clear the ball.
