It seems that the team of Pep Guardiola is missing the chance of winning the Premier League title for the 3rd time consecutively based on their recent form. The team which was so destructive in the last season, cannot get past the easy opponent in the season. Yes, Man City stumbled again in Premier League! Though they played far better than the local team earlier today and really they deserved the victory but it is so true that Newcastle came back from behind twice to force a 2-2 draw with Man City.
Now, after the end of the 14th round of the Premier League, they are already 11 points behind than the top-ranked holder Liverpool. Pep’s team is holding the 2nd position with 29 points and the 3rd ranked team Leicester City has also gathered 29 points but they played 13 matches here. So, they have a chance of overtaking Man City, if they manage a victory or the draw.
