Manchester City 3 - Newcastle 1: Sergio Aguero hat-trick seals nervy victory
Aguero popped up with his third goal six minutes from time to calm the nerves as Toon sensed a comeback.
The Argentine have already struck either side of half time to be City in control.
His first was a glancing header off Kevin de Bruyne’s cross, before he converted a penalty 63 minutes.
Newcastle gave themselves a lifeline when Jacob Murphy linked the ball over Ederson four minutes after the spot kick.
But Rafa Benitez’s men could not get another as Aguero converted off Leroy Sane’s pass to kill the game.
