Manchester City now go second in the table but could find themselves 11 points behind leaders Liverpool if Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Brighton later.

According to city coach, We found a way and today we found it again but unfortunately, at the end, we conceded a goal,” Guardiola said.

We could not score all the chances we had; they scored the two chances they had.

Sometimes it happens. In good moments, be calm. In bad moments, live these kind of moments.Raheem Sterling gave the visitors the lead in the first half but Jetro Willems equalised three minutes later with a fine team goal.

The visitors enjoyed overwhelming territorial superiority after the break but lacked their usual cutting edge as Newcastle sat deep.

Meanwhile, City went back in front with 10 minutes remaining when Kevin De Bruyne scored a stunning volley from outside of the box.But the hosts fought back once more when Shelvey curled a long range shot in the bottom corner.

City still could have snatched victory with Sterling, who had scored their opener, having a late effort well saved by outstanding home keeper Martin Dubravka.

At Anfield

Liverpool hung on after having goalkeeper Alisson sent off to beat Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 and extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to 11 points thanks to two first-half headers from Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool, who also equalled their unbeaten top flight run of 31 games set between May 1987 and March 1988, have 40 points from 14 games, with second-placed champions Manchester City on 29 after they were held to a 2-2 draw at Newcastle United.

It was a nervy record-extending 14th successive Premier League win at home for Liverpool, who missed a string of chances either side of Van Dijk’s double before they were forced to defend desperately in the closing stages.

The towering defender acknowledged Alisson’s sending off was a blow ahead of Liverpool’s Merseyside derby at home to Everton on Wednesday, which he will miss through suspension, and also praised Brighton.

We should have done better,” Van Dijk said. We put him in that situation but it is what it is. We have to deal with it. It is a disappointment but we go again.
