Mantab nya City Pimpin Klasemen Liga Inggris

City tak diperkuat sejumlah pemain kuncinya di laga ini. Selain Benjamin Mendy dan John Stones yang absen lama, David Silva dan Fabian Delph juga tak bermain.

Meski demikian, City tetap mampu memegang kendali permainan. Tim tamu mendapatkan cukup banyak peluang di babak pertama, tapi cuma satu yang berbuah gol melalui sontekan Sterling.

Permainan City menurun di babak kedua. Tapi, hal itu tak bisa dimanfaatkan oleh Newcastle untuk mencetak gol balasan.

Jalannya Pertandingan

Langsung tampil menekan sejak kick-off, City nyaris unggul pada menit ketujuh. Namun, tembakan Sergio Aguero digagalkan oleh tiang gawang.

Peluang berikutnya didapatkan oleh Kevin De Bruyne. De Bruyne punya ruang tembak cukup terbuka, tapi penyelesaiannya masih melambung.

City kehilangan kapten tim Vincent Kompany ketika laga baru berjalan sekitar sepuluh menit. Kompany harus ditarik keluar karena cedera dan digantikan oleh penyerang Gabriel Jesus.

Aguero kembali mengancam gawang Newcastle di menit ke-17. Dia menyambut tendangan bebas De Bruyne dengan sundulan kepalanya, tapi ditepis oleh kiper lawan, Robert Elliot.

Aguero mendapatkan kesempatan lagi di menit ke-30. Tembakannya kali ini tak bisa dijangkau oleh Elliot, tapi bola mengenai tiang.

City akhirnya unggul 1-0 pada menit berikutnya lewat gol Sterling. Gol ini tak lepas dari umpan jitu yang dikirimkan oleh De Bruyne. Sterling menuntaskan umpan tersebut dengan sontekan dari jarak dekat.

Newcastle nyaris menyamakan kedudukan saat laga memasuki menit ke-35. Tembakan lob Rolando Aarons sudah melewati kepala Ederson dan bola terlihat akan masuk ke gawang. Tapi, masih ada Nicolas Otamendi yang menghalaunya di garis gawang.

Di sisa babak pertama, Sterling punya kans untuk memperbesar keunggulan City. Namun, tembakannya dimentahkan oleh Elliot.

City melanjutkan gempurannya ke pertahanan Newcastle begitu babak kedua dimulai. Ilkay Guendogan berpeluang menambah keunggulan City di menit ke-54, tapi sepakan mendatarnya ditepis oleh Elliot.

Memasuki menit ke-66, De Bruyne nyaris mencetak gol lewat tembakan jarak jauh. Tapi, bola tembakannya cuma menghantam tiang gawang. Aguero yang menguasai bola rebound langsung menceploskannya ke dalam gawang. Tapi, Aguero sudah lebih dulu terjebak offside.

Newcastle lebih berani keluar menyerang dalam sepuluh menit terakhir. Hal ini membuat City mendapatkan lebih banyak ruang ketika menekan.

Tim tuan rumah berpeluang menyamakan kedudukan di menit ke-89. Dwight Gayle menyundul umpan dari Christian Atsu, tapi sundulannya masih sedikit melenceng.

Meski Newcastle berusaha meningkatkan tekanannya di sisa waktu, mereka tak bisa menyamakan skor. City pun pulang dengan kemenangan 1-0.
