The Fallout: Newcastle 2-2 Man City highlights and reaction as the Premier League champions come unstuck at St James' Park once again

Every angle of Newcastle 2-2 Man City covered in one place as BTSport.com provides the best of the match action, exclusive interviews with managers and players, pundit analysis, social media reaction and much, much more.

Pep Guardiola leaves the North East feeling disappointed for the second time in two seasons after an entertaining game at St James' Park that saw two goal of the month contenders exchanged in quick succession at the death.

Man City had taken the lead in the first half after David Silva's sublime backheel fed Raheem Sterling for a typically composed finish but Newcastle hit back just three minutes later through Jetro Willems.

The Dutch wing-back scored his second of the season, firing low past Ederson with his right foot, after good work from Miguel Almiron - his first assist in Newcastle colours.

City struggled to break down a resolute Newcastle defensive wall until Kevin De Bruyne unleashed an unstoppable half-volley with less than 10 minutes to go.

But Jonjo Shelvey would ensure Newcastle the points with a curling effort from 20 yards out to cap a mature performance in central midfield.

Man of the match

"I'm going for Willems but I could have picked any of the Newcastle defenders"

Steve McManaman

"He scored a nice goal to get Newcastle back in the game but it could have been anybody.

"Fernandez, Dummett, Clark - even De Bruyne. "

View from the dugout

"He's a good footballer, the kid, and in the last three games he's done very well."

Steve Bruce on Shelvey

Steve Bruce praised a disciplined performance from his Newcastle team capped off by a stunning long-range effort at the death from captain Jonjo Shelvey.

"Sometimes it happens"

Pep Guardiola

The Man City boss believes his side were unlucky not to take home all three points after missing chances during an entertaining back-and-forth affair against struggling Newcastle.

"We could have won, the first goal was unlucky I think"

Jetro Willems

Goalscorers Jetro Willems and Jonjo Shelvey reflect on a magnificent performance at St James' Park as they hold the Premier League champions to a 2-2 draw during a lunchtime thriller in the north east.

Pundits' verdicts

"Steve Bruce deserves a lot of credit for how he sets up against the big teams."

Joe Cole

Cole and Jermaine Jenas lavish praise on Newcastle boss Bruce after a game that saw both sides exchange stunning goals to go home with a point apiece. The result means City risk trailing further behind runaway league leaders Liverpool.
