Manchester City winger Leroy Sane reportedly faces an uncertain future at the Etihad Stadium after being dropped by Pep Guardiola for Saturday's meeting with Newcastle United.

Pep Guardiola's side restored their advantage seven minutes after the restart when Walker scored his first goal for the club with a rocket from 30 yards which left Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubrakva with no chance.

City, who have not lost a Premier League game to Newcastle since September 2005, opened the scoring in the seventh minute thanks to Sterling's second goal of the season.




Rafael Benitez has had a tough start to the season, picking up just one point from the first three games in the Premier League and being dumped out of the EFL Cup by Nottingham Forest.

Did Man City miss Leroy Sane? .

But Walker broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute by rifling shot from 25 yards out after Sterling dribbled into the area and left it for Sergio Aguero, who instead chose to set up his teammate. Subs: Gundogan 5, Bernardo Silva 5, Kompany N/A.

Walker, though, ensured a day of celebration for City ended the Man. City vs Newcastle game on a high as they marked the anniversary of a takeover that has led to a decade of spending and unprecedented success in their history. It's lazy defending from City, they fail to pick up the run of the Newcastle midfielder as he makes a late surge into the box to poke home Rondon's cross.

Newcastle hung in there, however, and equalised on the half-hour mark with a well-worked goal.
