Although Manchester City ended up with a 2-2 tie against Newcastle, midfielder Kevin De Bruyne had one of the best goals so far in this season of the Barclays Premier League. Newcastle attempted to clear the ball with a header, but De Bruyne was able to chest the ball down and crack a shot between three Newcastle players into the top left-hand corner of the net. The goalkeeper did not have a chance at this shot at all.
Although this goal put Manchester City ahead at 2-1 in the 81st minute, Newcastle was able to secure the tie in the waning minutes of the match. Manchester City is now tied for second with Leicester City, while Liverpool is in the driver’s seat with an eleven point lead.
