Newcastle United dent Manchester City’s title hopes with 2-1 victory on St. James’ Park. The magpies turned the game around in the second half, after Aguero’s opener in the 24th second of the match. Salomon Rondon leveled, while Matt Ritchie’s penalty in the 80th minute gave Newcastle an extremely important victory, sending them on the 14th position. City is suffered a big blow in the title race, with the fourth defeat of the season.

Manchester United came back from 2 goals down against Burnley, as the clarets put an end to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s winning streak. United have won their previous 8 games with the Norwegian as their manager, but today simply weren’t good enough.
