After Ilkay Gundongan’s opening goal, Newcastle went 3-1 up through Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson and a fantastic Kieran Trippier free-kick. But Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva struck back to secure a point for the visitors.

The reigning Premier League champions keep their unbeaten start to the new season in tact but they have lost top spot as Arsenal are the only team to still have a perfect record after three matches.

Much was said made of Erling Haaland’s quiet performance against Bournemouth last week but the Norwegian striker was key in the comeback. He scored to reduce City’s deficit to one and then his movement helped drag the Newcastle defence out to give Bernardo Silva space to score the equaliser.

Erling Haaland is just the third Manchester City player to score in his first two away games in the Premier League, after Emmanuel Adebayor and Emile Mpenza.

Pep Guardiola’s team will take on Barcelona in a friendly in midweek. After that, they return to league action with a home game against Crystal Palace before welcoming Nottingham Forest to the Etihad Stadium a few days later.
