Manchester City Defeats Newcastle 3-1 in English Premier League

Manchester City defeated Newcastle 3-1 to rebound from its first loss of the season in English soccer’s Premier League.

Sergio Aguero, Javi Garcia and Yaya Toure scored in the away win as defending champion City pulled within three points of Manchester United at the top of the standings. United, which ended City’s 15-match unbeaten run to open the season with a 3-2 win last weekend, hosts Sunderland later today.

Demba Ba scored for Newcastle, which lost for the sixth time in seven league matches.
