Newcastle vs. Man City result

Manchester City and Newcastle played to an exciting 3-3 draw at St. James' Park, with Erling Haaland sparking a second-half comeback for the Citizens.

Ilkay Gundogan gave the champions the lead in the fifth minute, but a sublime free-kick from Kieran Trippier early in the second half gave Newcastle the lead they deserved.

It wasn't long before Newcastle took control, with goals from Miguel Almiron and Callum Wilson set up by the indestructible Allan Saint-Maximin.

Trippier finished off the loose ball after John Stones knocked the winger down just outside the box, but Haaland scored off a rebound from Rodri's knockdown in the 60th minute

After Trippier's red card for a challenge on De Bruyne was overturned by VAR to a yellow card, the action shifted to the centre of the pitch.

Silva, making his first start of the year, set up Gundogan for his second goal in as many games with a cross from the right wing. 

It appeared as though City would run away with it before Nick Pope made the first of a series of fine saves to deny De Bruyne with his boots.

The momentum shifted, however, as Saint-Maximin threw a defence already rattled by Nathan Ake's injury-related departure into complete chaos.

The initial offside call on Almiron's goal, which had been caused by his cross, was overturned by VAR. The winger tore into Stones to find Wilson, who dribbled past Ruben Dias and finished superbly.

Even though City appeared to be out of options after Trippier's goal deafened the Gallowgate End crowd

there is no such thing as a lost cause with Haaland on the pitch. He had earlier witnessed Pope magnificently tip a low shot against the post.
