Premier League Bobb the hero as Man City recover to defeat Newcastle United

Manchester City youngster Oscar Bobb produced a cool, calm finish to ensure a thrilling last-gasp 3-2 Premier League win at Newcastle United on Saturday.

Bernardo opened the scoring for City on 26 minutes, with a delicious backheel goal. The Magpies went in ahead at the break against the run of play after a quickfire double from Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon.

But Pep Guardiola’s men came roaring back, with KDB producing a class right-foot finish on 74 minutes – just five minutes after coming on – to level matters. The iconic and inspirational midfielder then played in Bobb in injury-time with the academy graduate showing experience beyond his years to finish expertly.

The initial talking point came early and it was infuriating for the visitors. Sean Longstaff had the ball in the net on two minutes but Isak, who provided the cross, was clearly offside in the build-up.

The flag went up late and not before Ederson had been injured in a collision with Longstaff.
