Jonjo Shelvey shines as Man City drop points

Jonjo Shelvey celebrating against Man City.

Manchester City dropped two points in the title race on Saturday as Jonjo Shelvey’s late equaliser lit up James’ Park and earned Newcastle a point.

Kelvin de Bruyne thought he had won it for City in the 82nd minute after Mendy’s cross into the box headed out to him. He chests the ball to bring it down, allows it to bounce and then hits the half volley, rocketing the ball into the underside of the crossbar and across the line.

But Jonjo Shelvey stepped up in the 88-minute to make it 2-2 with a curling strike to the bottom left corner.

However, Raheem Sterling had earlier put City on the lead in the 22nd minute, but the lead was cancelled three-minute after by Jethro Willems.

Pep Guardiola’s side trail Premier League leaders Liverpool by eight points heading into the fixture and could now be 11 points behind by the end of the day, with Liverpool to play Brighton at 3pm.

Steve Bruce’s resurgent Newcastle are unbeaten in six games at home and looking impressive.
