Not even Michael Owen could not take the pressure off Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce as Manchester City claimed a 2-0 victory, their first Barclays Premier League away win since the opening day of the season.

The England striker passed up a chance to cancel out Elano´s 38th-minute strike within 35 seconds of his introduction as a half-time substitute as the Magpies´ poor form continued.

Newcastle could not make the most of a series of opportunities, particularly before the break, and they were punished once again with 14 minutes remaining when substitutes Kelvin Etuhu and Gelson Fernandes combined for the latter to make it 2-0.
