Newcastle played well enough to earn a point. After Bernardo Silva‘s superb opening goal, the Magpies responded quickly with a pair of quality goals to take a lead into halftime.
But, despite looking lively on the counterattack, Eddie Howe’s squad -which is missing several key players amid an injury crisis – appeared to be running on fumes in the second half after facing wave after wave of attacking advances from the visitors before succumbing to defeat.
The win lifts Pep Guardiola’s side into second place with 43 points after 20 games, two points back of leaders Liverpool.
