With St James Park rocking, Newcastle look set to claim a massive three points against champions City.
With all City’s class, there was bound to be a reaction to the three goals.
Erling Haaland provided the second goal for City in the 60th minute. Just four minutes later, City were level through Bernado Silva.
There was late drama as Trippier was sent off for a foul on Kevin De Bruyne during a breakaway. After being told to check the VAR screens, the referee overturned his decision and just awarded the defender a yellow card.
Here’s how fans reacted to the game on Twitter:
