Manchester City have scored five or more goals in the Premier League for the 30th time under Pep Guardiola – more than Liverpool (14) and Spurs (13).

Manchester City have lost just one of the past 29 league games against Newcastle (W24, D4).

Sterling headed the hosts into a 19th-minute lead and the score was doubled on 38 minutes, Aymeric Laporte reacting quickest to tap in a loose ball from close range.

Manchester City added a third just after the hour when Rodri headed in a Kevin de Bruyne corner.

Kevin De Bruyne has been involved in 16 goals in his last 17 Premier League appearances, scoring nine and assisting seven.

Rodrigo has scored six goals in 30 Premier League appearances this term, equalling his combined total in his two previous seasons across 69 games.

Substitute Phil Foden struck as the match entered stoppage time before Sterling rounded off a third straight league victory in the 93rd minute.

Manchester City now have 86 points, three more than Liverpool, and their goal difference also betters their rival’s by four.

Back to-back defeats leave Newcastle 13th with 43 points.

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said ,”I am very pleased. (It was a) perfect afternoon. Before the start of the game I felt in our crowd that they were disappointed, but not sad about who we are as a team and what we have done in the last five years every three days.

Three more points. Three games left and one competition to play and big problems behind because we have just three defenders for these three games.

We are going to try and do it. Now after what happened with Liverpool and with us today, Wednesday became a final.

It is an absolute final and I am pretty sure we will prepare well to try and beat them.”
