Manchester City threw off their shackles in magnificent style to record a superb comeback 3-1 win over Newcastle at Eastlands.

Sven-Goran Eriksson´s men were trailing to Obafemi Martins´ excellent strike just before the half hour.

But, after Martin Petrov had pulled them level before the break, City went in front through Emile Mpenza before man-of-the-match Elano wrapped up victory with a thunderous 25-yard free-kick four minutes from time.
