Newcastle beat Manchester City, reach League Cup quarters

  • Manchester City have been knocked out of the League Cup after they were defeated 2-0 by Newcastle at Etihad Stadium, according to media reports.

    Rolando Aarons gave the visitors the lead in the sixth minute and Moussa Sissoko scored the second goal in the 75th minute, taking Newcastle to the quarter-finals.

    Newcastle will now try for a semi-final place for the first time in four decades.

    Manuel Pellegrini, the City boss, will be a worried man as his team could only manage a draw after leading CSKA Moscow 2-0 and then lost to West Ham 2-1, before this latest defeat.
