With Manchester United's loss to Arsenal on Sunday, the Blues enter the two week international break atop the Barclays Premier League table with 18 points. Newcastle remains mired in the relegation zone with just three points. The Magpies have the worst record this calendar year in the Premier League. Having dropped the last two decisions in the Premier League, the Blues needed the full three points in this match. With the victory, Manchester City has now won twelve successive league matches against Newcastle. Even more remarkable is that the Blues have scored 23 goals and only conceded one in the last six league encounters with the Magpies, home or away.
