Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 Nice play by City looks as if it's going to result in a chance for Diaz to burst down the left flank and into a decent position, but the youngster ends up losing his footing at the vital moment and falls to the ground as he tries to dart away from his marker.
90' +2 Late chance for Gayle! Shelvey does well to carve out a pocket of space for himself over on the left-hand side of the City box before sending a great cross into the heart of the penalty area. Gayle rises high and reaches the ball, but he can't quite make good enough contact with it and sends his effort comfortably wide of the goal.
90' The fourth official has indicated that there will be three minutes of added time.
88' Murphy has arguably been Newcastle's best attacking player tonight, and once again he's able to burst forward on a good counter-attacking run. He breaks into the box and sets up Shelvey, who shoots from the right-hand side of the penalty area and forces Ederson into making a smart save.
87' Brahim Diaz enters the game and replaces L. Sané.
Meanwhile, Brahim Diaz has come on to take the place of Sane for the final few minutes.
86' Bernardo Silva enters the game and replaces R. Sterling.
Sterling receives a rousing round of applause from the home fans as he's replaced by Bernardo Silva.
85' City are still pushing deep inside the Newcastle half of the pitch as they try to wrap up the win with a fourth goal. Walker breaks into the right-hand side of the visitors' box and tries to cross, but he's quickly closed down and has to settle for a corner.
83' S. Agüero has scored a goal for Manchester City! Assist by L. Sané.
That really was a great piece of play by Sane. Newcastle have started pushing more bodies forward in search of an equaliser, and the winger did really well to take advantage of the space left available over on the left flank.
GOAL! It's a hat-trick for Aguero! Sane embarks on an absolutely wonderful run that sees him ghost past a plethora of Newcastle players on his way into the box. The German then pokes a great pass back to Aguero, who quickly smashes a low strike that Darlow can't stop from finding the back of the net.
82' De Bruyne almost makes it 3-1! Sterling and Aguero link up nicely just outside of the Newcastle penalty area before the Argentine moves the ball over to De Bruyne. The midfielder quickly shoots, and his curling effort ends up bouncing just a yard or so wide of the far post.
80' Sane is dispossessed deep inside the Newcastle half of the pitch and the visitors counter-attack once again. Murphy does well to reach the edge of the penalty area after getting the better of Nicolas Otamendi, but there's nobody in a black and white shirt around him and he's eventually dispossessed before he can tee up a team-mate.
