Haaland and Bernardo Silva drive Man City’s incredible comeback in six-goal thriller vs Newcastle as they played 3:3 eventful draw
Manchester City fought back to claim a draw against Newcastle in a six-goal thriller on Sunday
- Almiron, Wilson and Trippier on target
- But Haaland and Bernardo Silva rescued Man City late
- Both teams still unbeaten in the league
After Ilkay Gundongan’s opening goal, Newcastle went 3-1 up through Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson and a fantastic Kieran Trippier free-kick. But Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva struck back to secure a point for the visitors.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
The reigning Premier League champions keep their unbeaten start to the new season in tact but they have lost top spot as Arsenal are the only team to still have a perfect record after three matches.
ALL EYES ON
Much was said made of last week Erling Haaland’s quiet performance against Bournemouth but the Norwegian striker was key in the comeback. He scored to reduce City’s deficit to one and then his movement helped drag the Newcastle defense out to give Bernardo Silva space to score the equalizer.
