Last night we saw Manchester City thrash Newcastle 4-0 as the Magpies were found wanting by a superb City display.
It took six minutes for David Silva to open the scoring with a close range header after a couple of deflections in the Newcastle goal area, it was one of the 'In the right place at the right time' type of goals.
Sergio Aguero scored before the half time interval by cooly sweeping the ball past Tim Krul and into the corner of the net.
After the interval the scoring continued with Yaya Toure scoring a magnificent curled free kick and Samir Nasri on target just before the final whistle.
It was expected that Manchester City would win the game but it wasn't expected to be that much of a thrashing. Newcastle looked very poor, they had a couple of chances to score but there wasn't much creation from them and the defending was awful.
Steven Taylor was given a straight red card for a wreckless challenge and Newcastle were lucky not to get another red card as M'Biwa struggle to keep pace with Jesus Navas.
Manchester City dominated the full game from start to finish, I enjoyed watching them play for the first time in a while, they passed the ball into space and attacked the channels in Newcastle's defence. Although Dzeko couldn't score after getting chance after chance, he looked on fine form and linked very well with Aguero up front.
It wasn't trouble free for Pellegrini as he lost Vincent Kompany to a groin injury.
