Pep Guardiola predicts Newcastle’s Premier League future

Pep Guardiola predicts Newcastle’s Premier League future

Newcastle vs Man City highlights - Pep Guardiola's side were held to a 2-2 draw at St. James' Park on Saturday.

Yet for the second time in the match, Newcastle replied quickly as Shelvey curled a shot past Ederson in the 88th minute.

Despite enjoying overwhelming territorial superiority, City lacked their usual cutting edge as Newcastle sat deep but De Bruyne's late 25-metre strike which cannoned in off the underside of the crossbar appeared to have sealed it.

Guardiola's City broke numerous records as they clocked up 100 points in winning the Premier League in 2018 and followed up by claiming a domestic treble last season. "We should have avoided the free-kick we conceded and Shelvey made the difference". "But they play", he said.

A late goal from ex-Liverpool man Jonjo Shelvey meant that the points were shared between the two sides in the North East, despite Kevin de Bryune scoring a superb goal that looked likely to give Guardiola's side the three points.

When asked about his team's performance, Guardiola said it was "good". "We could not score all the chances we had; they scored the two chances they had".

Defender John Stones said the chase was "still on".

This time last season, they'd conceded just six goals, keeping clean sheets in eight out of their opening 14 games. "I think we played at the level of last season".

"When I feel that is not worse, we will see with the club the best way".

"I might be a hero in Liverpool now but in all seriousness we need as many points as we can and we need to keep moving up the table".

Aaron Cresswell was the unlikely hero as West Ham won at Chelsea to climb to 13th, pulling well away from trouble and inflicting a second straight league defeat on Chelsea.

Dele Alli scored twice as Tottenham beat Bournemouth, though they were holding on at the end after two Harry Wilson goals for the visitors.
