Aguero seals opening win for City

The reigning champs start their season with three points, holding off an impressive Newcastle performance.

Sergio Aguero came off the bench to ensure a winning start for defending Premier League champions Manchester City at Newcastle.

- Post-match reactions: Pellegrini | Pardew
- Delaney: Three Points from Newcastle vs. Manchester City

City were hanging on to a 1-0 lead with the Magpies going for broke when the Argentina international struck in stoppage time to end the home side's hopes.

David Silva had fired the visitors into a 38th-minute lead, making the most of Edin Dzeko's intelligent backheel, and Manuel Pellegrini's men will feel they were good value for the points after creating the better chances although the result remained in doubt until Aguero struck.

Their movement and passing were characteristically impressive -- their finishing less so -- although Newcastle were unable to work City goalkeeper Joe Hart to any real extent despite enjoying their fair share of possession in front of a crowd of 50,816 at St James' Park.

New boys Jack Colback and Remy Cabella were impressive on their debuts, while lone striker Emmanuel Riviere showed flashes of his talent before fading as he found himself locked in a physical battle with Vincent Kompany.

But while there were positives for Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, and appreciative applause from the home fans on the whistle, it was Pellegrini and his club's followers who were wearing the smiles.

Captains Fabricio Coloccini and Kompany, along with former Sunderland goalkeeper Jimmy Montgomery, laid wreaths in the centre circle as they were joined by relatives of fans John Alder and Liam Sweeney, who died on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.

When the game kicked off, City ripped into their hosts from the off and might have established a commanding lead within the opening 11 minutes.

Goalkeeper Tim Krul had to be at his most alert to keep out Dzeko's close-range second-minute effort after Steven Jovetic had played him in with a delicately lofted pass over the top, and the Dutchman was in action again nine minutes later.

Samir Nasri and Aleksandar Kolarov played a long-range one-two before the Frenchman teed himself up to unleash a rasping drive which Krul had to dive full-length to turn away.

But as they warmed to their task, the Magpies started to make an impact.

Coloccini and central defensive partner Mike Williamson managed to get to grips with Dzeko and Jovetic to allow the men in front of them to prosper, but while there were flashes from Cabella and Riviere and a series of surging runs from Moussa Sissoko, there was little of note to trouble Hart.

Cabella drifted a chipped 16th-minute effort over Hart's crossbar and Riviere, who showed plenty of endeavour but slightly less composure, scuffed wide from distance and blazed across goal when he might have done better.

At the other end, Williamson denied Jovetic with a perfectly-timed block, but the respite was temporary and City took the lead with seven minutes of the half remaining.

Coloccini and Williamson were both drawn to Dzeko as he chased down a long ball, and both were left stranded when he backheeled it between them for Silva to exploit the space and fire left-footed past Krul.

Newcastle responded in determined fashion immediately after the restart, with Yoan Gouffran seeing two shots blocked in quick succession after Colback's 50th-minute corner reached him beyond the far post, and Cabella scooped over under pressure from Sissoko's pass.

Full-back Paul Dummett headed over after reaching Colback's corner ahead of Hart, but it took a good block by Coloccini to prevent Jovetic from extending the visitors' lead on the hour.

Dzeko headed onto the roof of Krul's net 25 minutes from time and Yaya Toure, who had one of his quieter afternoons, floated a free-kick just over eight minutes later.

The Magpies threw caution to the wind as time ran down, and substitute Ayoze Perez saw a shot deflected just wide of the far post before Sissoko blazed wastefully over at the death.

But substitute Aguero wrapped up the win in stoppage time when, after Krul had blocked his initial effort, he stabbed the rebound home from close range.
