It was a very good result for the Magpies, as City are the defending English champions and have arguably the best squad in England.
Elliott has suggested that Bruce, who was appointed as the Newcastle manager in the summer of 2019 following the departure of Benitez, is doing a better job at St. James’ Park than the Spaniard did.
Surely Newcastle fans will recognise that Steve Bruce is doing a better job now than what Rafa Benitez was doing #NEWMCI— Stephen Elliott (@SleevesElliott) November 30, 2019
While it is true that Newcastle did well to play out a 2-2 draw with City, the fact is that they are only four points above the relegation zone.
Benitez did a remarkable job at the Magpies, and it is too early to say if Bruce is doing better than him.
After all, there is still the danger of Newcastle getting relegated to the Championship, and Bruce cannot be judged based only on one game.
