Aguero continues ruthless streak vs. Newcastle with hat trick in City win

Craig Burley breaks down the highs and lows of Manchester City's return to winning ways against Newcastle.
Sergio Aguero marked his 200th Premier League appearance with a hat trick as Manchester City recovered from their first league defeat to beat Newcastle.

From playing your bogey side at a ground you never win at to playing your most pliable Premier League opponent, Manchester City could not have asked for a more appropriate fixture after the defeat at Liverpool. Needing to respond to last weekend's first setback of the season, City succeeded in the most encouraging way possible, playing their unstoppable passing in a 3-1 win over Newcastle. With the return of David Silva to rule the roost over midfield and a seamless performance from yet another...

Manchester City's slapstick history keeps fans on edge in title race

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Paul Mariner square off in predicting the latest Premier League fixtures.

The mentality of Manchester City fans is something that could fascinate psychologists for eternity. Growing up following a club that is so adept at bounding down the most nonsensical path imaginable, not only not trying to stop it but actively steering the car over the cliff edge, has led to the sort of conditioning that makes some worry their lead at the top of the Premier League might not be enough.

Only the sort of fans who watched their club waste time to secure a 2-2 draw with Liverpool that...

Premier League Predictions: Man City vs. Newcastle, Burnley vs. United

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Paul Mariner square off in predicting the latest Premier League fixtures.

So, Manchester City are not unbeatable after all.

Liverpool showed the rest of the league how it's done with a rousing 4-3 win over the runaway leaders last time out, so how will Pep Guardiola's men respond? Newcastle face the daunting task of facing a City side eager to bounce back this Saturday.

Predict that and the rest of the matches in our match polls ...

Manchester United face a tricky looking trip to Burnley -- and no Alexis Sanchez debut in that one -- while Arsenal face Crystal Palace...

Newcastle the perfect match for Manchester City after Liverpool loss

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City's loss to Liverpool is more proof the title race has yet to be decided in the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola says Manchester City's loss to Liverpool is more proof the title race has yet to be decided in the Premier League.

"To lose is never good news, but all the teams lose games. Why can we not lose games? It is important not to lose again. The most important is the next one, Newcastle is so, so important."

That was Pep Guardiola's reaction after Manchester City's 4-3 defeat to Liverpool -- their first significant blip of the season. Just over 24 hours later second-placed Manchester United won at home to Stoke City to reduce City's lead to 12 points at the top of the Premier League and it had Paul Pogba and Juan...

Blueprint to beat Manchester City flawed as Pep's men remain in charge

ESPN FC's Craig Burley looks at whether Manchester City need to improve their defence.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley looks at whether Manchester City need to improve their defence.

A rash of articles have appeared considering Liverpool's "blueprint" on how to beat Manchester City. One or two analysed the situation thoroughly and sensibly. We will have to wait to see if a) teams start to copy Liverpool's magic formula or b) the defeat at Anfield triggers some greater crisis of confidence in Pep Guardiola's well-oiled machine.

Taken in isolation, Liverpool's success last weekend looks impressive and offers hope to the rest of the Premier League there might indeed still...
