Man City have been shocked by a late equalizer from Jonjo Shelvey (88′) to finish 2-2 with Newcastle at “St. James’ Park”. Guardiola’s team can find themselves in a 12-point gap from the top, depending on what Liverpool do in their game against Brighton later today.
Man City held the lead twice
A well-taken strike by Raheem Sterling gave them the advantage in the 22nd minute, but Jethro Willems from Newcastle was quick to restore the draw, scoring three minutes later (25′).
Kevin De Bruyne scored a magnificent volley (82′) and it appeared as if City had secured the three points. However, “The Geordies” were quick to reply, once more. Shelvey (88′) grabbed the point for his team after a stunning strike.
This was Man City’s second draw for the season. They are now with a total of 29 pts and could end up being 3rd at the end of Matchday 14, equal points with Chelsea and three behind Leicester. “The Foxes” play Everton tomorrow, while Chelsea feature in the London derby against West Ham later today.
Newcastle, on the other side, this being their fourth draw of the season, has now collected 16 points and is currently 12th in the standings.
