City extends winning run to 18 games
    2017-December-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

MANCHESTER City moved 15 points clear at the top of the English Premier League as it extended its winning run to 18 games at Newcastle on Wednesday.

Raheem Sterling’s 31st-minute strike was all the leaders had to show for a dominant display in front of a crowd of 52,311 at St. James’ Park. The Magpies’ ultra-conservative approach frustrated them despite their wealth of possession. The 1-0 win was enough on a night when Rafael Benitez’s men slipped to a fifth consecutive home defeat for the first time since 1953.

“I’m happy with a lot of clean sheets,” City manager Pep Guardiola said. “Today we have started the second round (half of the season) — 18 games left. ”

It might have been worse for Newcastle had referee Andre Marriner taken a dimmer view of Jacob Murphy’s first-half challenge on Ilkay Gundogan. Of the incident, Guardiola said: “Everybody is focusing on diving but the referees have to follow the rules and try to take care of the players, so they feel safe.”
