Newcastle United knocked Capital One Cup holders Manchester City out of the competition this evening as they won at the Etihad for the first time in their history.
Alan Pardew's side, who secured a fine win against Tottenham in the Premier League at White Hart Lane this past weekend, started brightly as teenager Rolando Aarons slid the ball through the legs of Willy Caballero after just six minutes.
Things got worse for City just minutes later, as tricky Spaniard David Silva had to be replaced after picking up a knock.
In truth, the Magpies looked solid throughout the opening half, as Pardew's side continued to utilise their pace on the break. City, meanwhile, who had the likes of Eden Dzeko, Stevan Jovetic, Yaya Toure and Co. at their disposal, created a few opportunities, but failed to take them.
And it was the same story in the second-half, with both sides creating opportunities in an extremely open game. Newcastle were stunned with a quarter of the game remaining as they were denied a clear penalty after Gabriel Obertan was brought down by Alexander Kolarov.

However, Pardew's side weren't to be denied for long, as they doubled their lead thanks to a piece of individual brilliance from Moussa Sissoko.
Pardew's men lived dangerously at the end, but fully deserved their famous win at the Etihad on an historic evening for the club.
Newcastle, of course, will now be hoping to go all the way in the competition, while the Citizens will be looking to bounce back in the Manchester derby against Manchester United this Sunday.
