Newcastle United produced a special performance on Wednesday night, as Bruno Guimaraes and co knocked Manchester City out of the Carabao Cup.
The Magpies produced a cup upset to dump Man City out of the competition, with Alexander Isak scoring the only goal of the game.
That did not feel likely at half time. In the first 45 minutes, Man City were dominant. They had all the ball, and it looked like only a matter of time before Pep Guardiola’s side took the lead.
But a change at the break galvanised Eddie Howe’s side. He brought Bruno Guimaraes and Anthony Gordon on for Lewis Miley and Lewis Hall, and their introductions changed the game.
Suddenly Newcastle were much more positive and aggressive, while they were also more competent on the ball. Too many times in the first half we gave away possession cheaply, but that stopped once Bruno arrived.
