Manchester City maintained their challenge for the Premier League title with a 5-0 defeat of Newcastle United at home on Saturday.
The defending English champions headed into the clash at the Etihad Stadium on the back of a 4-1 victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday.
City were favourites to win against Newcastle, but not many would have expected them to batter John Carver’s team.
Edin Dzeko ended the game as a contest in the 21st minute, and Spain international midfielder David Silva bagged two goals in quick succession in the opening minutes of the second half.
The City players were understandably delighted with their comprehensive win against Newcastle and took to social networking site Twitter to revel in it.
The players also sent a positive message to the City fans ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 first-leg tie against Barcelona at the Etihad.
A great game to get closer to the top and prepare for the Champions game with the highest spirits. C'mon, City!— Sergio Kun Aguero (@aguerosergiokun) February 21, 2015
