Man City 3 – Newcastle 1
After losing 4-3 to Liverpool last weekend in the Premier League, Man City bounced back in style against Newcastle.
Newcastle were always going to be up against it against the Sky Blues.
Some bookies had Newcastle at 25/1 to beat Man City in the run up to the game. The bookies obviously knew what was coming.
Sergio Aguero starred for Pep Guardiola’s as the Argentine scored his first Premier League hat-trick of the season.
His first was a faint header from a Kevin De Bruyne cross. His second came from the penalty spot.
Aguero’s third came after amazing work from Leroy Sane.

Leroy Sane vs Man United’s Ryan Giggs
Sane is now up to ten Premier League assists this season.
And the German winger drew praise from Man United fans comparing him to Welsh legend Ryan Giggs.
Leroy Sane is the closest thing to Ryan Giggs I’ve ever seen. Pains me to say it, but the boy is quality.

Is Sane even better than the Man United hero? While City fans poured on social media to make those claims, Sane has a lot of medals to pick up to come close to Giggs’ trophy cabinet.
Giggs won a remarkable 13 Premier League titles at United. He also won every major honour in club football, with the exception of the Europa League.
Leroy Sané is the first U23 player to reach 10 league assists in Europe’s top five leagues this season.
What an absolutely phenomenal way to do it. ⚡️ pic.twitter.com/TyH8sxk8mo

Leroy Sané already a better player than Giggs ever was

If you combined Messi, Ronaldo, Giggs, Robben, and Bale into one player then you would get Leroy Sané

Sane, incredible. 50x the player Trashford is.
