Subs (not used): Steffen (gk), Ake, Silva, Mahrez, Mbete, Palmer.

NEWCASTLE (4-3-3):

5 Dubravka: Gundogan’s volley for Man City’s second was well hit, but he might well feel he should have dealt with it better

4 Krafth: Struggled to deal with Grealish from open play and completely lost Rodri for City’s third goal

4 Lascelles: Had a torrid afternoon trying to deal with the Man City forward line as he returned to replace Schar

4 Burn: Couldn’t really handle the movement of the City attack and managed to pick up a booking when the ball was not even in play

4 Targett: Was up against it as he tried to contain the irrepressible Cancelo and was spent by the closing stages

6 GUIMARAES: Tried to muster some spirit and fight, and was arguably the only Newcastle player to ask questions of the City defence

4 Longstaff: Found himself overrun at the heart of midfield – with his contract due to expire this summer, there are still questions over his future

5 Joelinton: Was restored to his new midfield role, but never really looked like capable of keeping City in check

4 Almiron: Tried to offer some protection to those behind him, but offered absolutely nothing in the final third

5 Wood: Should have done better with an early header, and had a first-half effort rightly chalked off for offside

5 Saint-Maximin: Provided his usual mixture of excitement and infuriation – needs to concentrate on his own form rather than the failings of those around him


5 Trippier (for Krafth, 68): Proved his wellbeing by returning for the final half-hour

5 Wilson (for Wood, 68): Should probably have scored when he broke clear before shooting at Ederson

Murphy (for Almiron, 80)

(not used): Darlow (gk), Dummett, Schar, Manquillo, Ritchie, Gayle.

Man Of The Match: JOAO CANCELO – Is notionally a full-back, but in reality is much more than that. Provided City’s most dangerous attacking threat for much of the game.
