Newcastle United 0-2 Manchester City – Premier League – 6th May 2012

Man City’s Ivorian force of nature, Yaya Touré, was once again the match-winner for the Citizens, netting both of his side’s second-half goals in a very difficult tie away to Newcastle.

With no score after an hour played, Roberto Mancini brought on Nigel De Jong and pushed Touré into a more attacking role, with devastating effect.

The Magpies pushed title-chasing City all the way, but now they find themselves in fifth, a point behind Tottenham. As for City, a win at home to QPR on the final day of the season will see them crowned Premier League champions.

    As a United supporter, I was hoping for some magic from Ba, Ben Arfa, Cissé & co.

    As it transpires, I think even the most ardent Geordie would admit that the better team won.

    Newcastle are a powerful team, full of skill and determination in equal measure.

    But this City side, they’re like the Premier League version of Barca.

    Which gives me even more reason to hate them.

    Good luck to the Toon Army in reaching the Champions League next season, I hope yous do it.

    And come on QPR…
