Steven Mcinerney looks at 5 things we learned from City’s win over Newcastle

Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney looks at 5 things we learned from Manchester City’s 3-2 win over Newcastle. The champions picked up a crucial three points at St.James Park in what could be a crucial win come season’s end.

Steven Mcinerney believes that Kevin De Bruyne could be the greatest player in Premier League history. The resume of the midfielder certainly backs up this argument. De Bruyne put in an inspired cameo performance to lift the treble winners to a vital win. It was a reminder to the rest of the Premier League of how great he is. He scored one and set up Oscar Bobb’s late winner as he led his team to a famous win.

If Kevin De Bruyne continues with the form he showed against Newcastle there won’t be any doubt about his greatness.

The form of Mateo Kovacic has gone under the radar. City’s Croatian midfielder has brought more security to the midfield and it has shown in recent weeks. While De Bruyne, Bobb, Phil Foden and others get the headlines the contribution of Kovacic can’t be underestimated. After a run of niggling injuries his return to form has coincided with the champion’s return to winning ways.

The rise of Oscar Bobb also continued against Eddie Howe’s side. City’s Norwegian starlet scored the late winner with a goal that showed everything special about the youngster. It also continued his fantastic recent form. Bobb put in a polished display against Huddersfield a week ago and was at it again against Newcastle. If his first goal is a sign of things to come from Bobb the sky is the limit for the youngster.
