Manuel Pellegrini got off to a winning start as Manchester City manager with a 4-0 victory over Newcastle that took his side straight to the top of the table.
City totally outclassed the Magpies, even before Steven Taylor had been sent-off for a forearm swipe across Sergio Aguero’s head.
David Silva gave City the lead with a trademark header…
Aguero added a second with a fine strike into the very corner of the net.
Yaya Toure’s curled free-kick made it 3-0 before substitute Samir Nasri completed the scoring.
