8 Jul 2020
Premier League - Manchester City v Newcastle United

Spaniard scores a superb free-kick and gets two assists as City beat Newcastle 5-0 to move nine points clear of third place

David Silva inspired Manchester City to a 5-0 home win over Newcastle United with a goal and two assists. 

Silva set up Gabriel Jesus to open the scoring from close range on 10 minutes. 

Riyad Mahrez made it 2-0 soon after, tapping in his 10th goal of the season from Kevin De Bruyne's 18th assist of 2019/20. 

After the break Federico Fernandez netted an unfortunate own goal before Silva curled in a fantastic 65th-minute free-kick.

Silva put the gloss on a wonderful performance to set up substitute Raheem Sterling in stoppage time.

City’s win keeps them second on 69 points, nine above third-placed Chelsea, while Newcastle drop to 13th as their six-match unbeaten run comes to an end.
