It will be interesting to see if Eddie Howe sends his side out for the second half playing with the same intensity as just before the interval.

Their best way of hurting Man City seems to be with their direct counter attacking.

As long as they can break down the City attacks and play the right pass, they seem able to turn defence into attack in an instant.

57 MINUTES AGO
By Kieran Davies
HT: Newcastle 2-1 Man City
It has been a game that has had it all so far.

Some brilliant passing football from Pep Guardiola’s side but the direct counter attacking by Newcastle has been clinical.

As for which way this game will go in the second half, it is absolutely anyone’s guess.
