Is there one last chance left in this match for Newcastle United to snatch a point? They have played well. It could be argued they deserve something. Very decent display!
Jesus drives into the box with the ball at his feet, but his low shot is blocked. It hasn't been the best performance from the Brazilian forward, although he has notched an assist.
There will be five minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the match.
A final change for Newcastle and it's a positive one with Gayle on for Fernandez.
Having been given real problems by Newcastle United on the counter attack, it feels like Manchester City are just putting their foot on the ball to see out the match and the three points.
... and Joelinton has run his race as he comes off for Longstaff.
A double change for Newcastle United. Lewis is on for Ritchie...
Walker's cross goes behind for a goal kick and Newcastle get the chance to touch the ball for the first time in three minutes and 35 seconds. Quite incredible from the champions.
This is getting silly from Manchester City. I swear Newcastle United haven't touched the ball in about three minutes. The away side are keeping the ball like it's a training session.
PICTURE: What a finish this was!
Manchester City have been the best team in the Premier League this season by a long, long distance. Guardiola will want his side to finish the 2020/21 campaign strongly.
Torres has certainly shown that he can do a job for City in the final third with his performance this evening. The Spaniard has enjoyed a good first season in England.
Erling Haaland has been strongly linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium, but City would almost certainly have to break their transfer record to sign the lethal Norwegian centre forward.
It will be interesting to see what business Manchester City do in the summer transfer window. Aguero’s departure means they could be in the market for a new centre forward.
- OffJoão CanceloManchester City
- OnBenjamin MendyManchester City
A change at left back for Man City with Mendy on for Cancelo.
Willock shot on goal! That was a poor decision from the on-loan Arsenal midfielder. He decided to take on the shot from a tight angle when he should have squared into the middle.
PICTURE: Madness in the North East!
The impact of Dias at Manchester City this season has been remarkable. The Portuguese international has made such a difference to the solidity of Guardiola’s team. They have missed him here!
There is a real sense that Manchester City are becoming the dominant force in the Premier League. Indeed, this season’s title win means they have won the league in three of the last four years!
What a crazy game this has been!
- GoalFerran TorresManchester City
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 3 Manchester City 4 (66 mins - Ferran Torres). City have regained the lead! Cancelo's shot from outside the box strikes the post, but Torres reacts quickest to finish the rebound into the back of the empty net! That's a hat trick for the Spanish forward! What a display!
Well, this has been a brilliant game. Neither team has anything to play for which has given the encounter a distinct 'end of season' feel. Are there more goals left in this one?
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 3 Manchester City 3 (64 mins - Ferran Torres). An instant response from the newly-crowned Premier League champions! Jesus drives into the box down the right and fires a ball into the box. Torres reacted quickest to turn it high into the roof of the net! Back on level terms!
- GoalJoe WillockNewcastle United
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 3 (63 mins - Joe Willock) Manchester City 2. Carson makes the save from Willock, but the on-loan Arsenal midfielder is quickest to the rebound and finishes into the back of the net! What a bizarre match this has been! Newcastle United have the lead again over the champions!
PENALTY KICK TO NEWCASTLE UNITED! Willock is felled inside the box by Walker and it's a spot kick!
Indeed, Sterling has been linked with a summer move to Real Madrid. Contract talks with Manchester City are believed to have broken down. Could he be on the move soon?
There are some questions over Sterling’s future at Manchester City. The England international has fallen out of favour this season and there have been hints he could leave.
- Yellow cardJonjo ShelveyNewcastle United
And now Shelvey enters the book for a foul on Cancelo.
- Yellow cardJoão CanceloManchester City
Cancelo is shown a yellow card for kicking the ball away in frustration.
Murphy draws the save! This is a good period for Newcastle with Murphy shifting the ball on to his right foot to get the shot away from inside the box, but Carson gets down to save.
What a cross! That was a wicked delivery from Ritchie, but nobody in black and white could get on the end of it! He's not happy. He feels one of his Newcastle teammates should have scored.
Ake hasn't exactly had the most comfortable of evenings. Joelinton is actually giving the Manchester City defender all kinds of problems. Ake is better than he is showing here.
Sterling has been quiet for Manchester City so far this evening. He could do with a goal to boost his confidence. Sterling probably won't start the Champions League final in this form.
Of course, City’s season is now all about the Champions League final which they will play at the end of the month against Chelsea in Porto. Guardiola might rotate a bit more in the league.
PICTURE: Joelinton equalised before the break!
Manchester City came into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea. It should be noted Guardiola made a number of changes for that game, but their league form has been patchy.
The first half was highly entertaining. More of the same please! City have dominated the ball, as you would expect them to, but Newcastle have carried real threat on the break.
The second half is under way! It's 2-2 between Newcastle United and Manchester City at St James' Park!
HALF TIME: Newcastle United 2-2 Manchester City. A curious first half at St James' Park. City have been in control of much of the match, but the Magpies are giving this a go!
- Goal by penaltyJoelintonNewcastle United
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 2 (45+6 mins - Joelinton) Manchester City 2. Joelinton steps up to take the penalty kick and rattles home a finish! There was no way Carson was stopping that! Even if he'd got a hand to it, the power of the strike would have taken the goalkeeper into the back of the net!
PENALTY KICK TO NEWCASTLE UNITED! After a long VAR check, a spot kick has been awarded after a foul by Ake on Joelinton.
- Yellow cardRodriManchester City
Torres becomes the first City player to be flashed a yellow card this evening.
There will be a minimum of three minutes stoppage time played at the end of the first half.
Goal stands! Indeed, there's no reason to rule out that brilliant goal from Torres and Manchester City have overcome a minor blip to lead going into the half time interval.
VAR check... they are checking this for an offside. Jesus might just have been beyond the last defender when the pass was played, but he wasn't involved in the goal!
- GoalFerran TorresManchester City
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 1 Manchester City 2 (42 mins - Ferran Torres). What an incredible finish! Gundogan's freekick delivery wasn't the best, but Torres improvised and flicked a finish into the far corner of the net! Manchester City have turned this match around at the end of the first half!
This was the opener!
It's fair to say it has been a peculiar first half at St James' Park. Manchester City have been so dominant for so much of it, but Newcastle have posed a threat on the counter.
- GoalJoão CanceloManchester City
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 1 Manchester City 1 (39 mins - Joao Cancelo). The champions are level! Man City kept the ball alive in the penalty area, the ball was played back to Cancelo and the Portuguese full back's strike picks up a deflection and spins into the far corner of the Newcastle net!
- Yellow cardMatt RitchieNewcastle United
Ritchie is shown the first yellow card of the match for a clear foul on Jesus.
Off the crossbar! Inches away from a second Newcastle United goal! Shelvey's freekick strike was a good one, but the midfielder sees his effort crash off the woodwork! Wow!
Shot on target! Gundogan has an opportunity to test Dubravka with a freekick right on the edge of the Newcastle box, but the German midfielder's shot is saved comfortably.
Indeed, Willock has now scored in four straight games for Newcastle. Surely Arteta is going to give him another chance at Arsenal next season? Not like they have loads of midfield options!
Willock has made a massive impact at Newcastle United since arriving on loan from Arsenal in the January transfer window. Bruce has already revealed he wants to keep him at the club.
That was a good run from Willock through the centre of the pitch, but his pass into Joelinton was wayward and Ake comes away with the ball for Manchester City.
Bruce has kept Newcastle United in the Premier League for another season, but so many fans want to see a new manager in charge for the 2021/22 campaign. He isn’t popular.
Carson's first act of the match is to pick the ball out of his own net. The defending from Manchester City for the corner kick was pretty poor, although Krafth did very well!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 1 (25 mins - Emil Krafth) Manchester City 0. Completely against the run of play, Newcastle have taken the lead! Krafth got on the end of a corner kick delivery into the box by Shelvey and guides his header past Carson! City had been dominant in this match so far!
Newcastle's best chance so far! The Magpies finally get away on the counter attack with Saint-Maximim feeding Joelinton the pass, but Walker reads the shot and makes the block!
Wilson scored twice in Newcastle’s win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. He is missing for the Magpies this evening, though. Joelinton leading the line for the home side.
VAR check! The officials have taken a look at a potential handball by Fernandez inside the box, but there was nothing in that from the Newcastle United central defender.
Dubravka makes the save! Cancelo shifts the ball on to his right foot 20 yards out and gets the shot away, but the Newcastle United goalkeeper makes the comfortable save.
Newcastle United are camped inside their own penalty box. They have been for the last 10 minutes. Manchester City are intensifying the tempo of their build-up play...
Newcastle United come into this game on the back of a very impressive away win over Leicester City. The Magpies showed a level of attacking threat they have rarely demonstrated this season!
Not so long ago, Newcastle United looked to be in real trouble near the foot of the Premier League table, but the Magpies are safe for another season after some recent wins.
It feels like City are really starting to turn the screw on their opponents here. The away side are having plenty of the ball, looking for a way through the Newcastle defence.
This is an opportunity for Ake to show what he can do. The Dutchman has been something of a peripheral figure for City since making the move from Bournemouth last summer.
Chance for Torres! Gundogan played a wonderful pass for Cancelo down the left side, he found Torres with the square pass into the middle, but the Spaniard flicks wide of goal!
City are doing that thing City tend to do by knocking the ball around with ease in the centre of the pitch. The pass is played to Gundogan, but he drags his shot wide of the far post.
Jesus should do better! Newcastle clear a long ball straight to Jesus who takes a good touch on his chest before lashing a volley just wide of Dubravka's post! Good opportunity!
Ake blazes over! Manchester City's first sight of goal and it comes as Ake drives forward from defence, but the Dutch centre back puts his effort wildly over the Newcastle crossbar!
A big cheer from the Manchester City box as Carson gets his hands on the ball for the first time. The veteran goalkeeper has been given a start to say thanks for his work behind the scenes.
Joelinton does well to win a corner kick for Newcastle down the right side, but Ritche's delivery into the Manchester City box is saved by Jesus. No real danger for the visitors.
A positive start to the match by City with Bernardo getting a cross into the box from the right side, but Shelvey did enough to clear the danger for the home team. The pattern is established.
What sort of match will we get this evening? Manchester City have already been confirmed as Premier League champions, so will Guardiola and his players be on their holidays tonight?
- 1st Half
The match is under way! It's Newcastle United against Manchester City in this Premier League fixture!
Okay, here we go. We are about to get under way at St James' Park! Kick off coming up shortly!
A guard of honour from Newcastle United for the newly-crowned Premier League champions before kick off!
Not long until kick off at St James' Park. This match has that 'end of season' vibe, it must be said...
Opportunity for Jesus! Guardiola has handed another start to Jesus. It's time that the Brazilian forward proved that he is good enough to be Manchester City's starting striker.
No sign of de Bruyne or Aguero for Manchester City this evening, but it's still a very strong lineup from the recently-crowned Premier League champions. Tough task for Newcastle!
I'm Graham Ruthven and you can catch me on Twitter ahead of the match to let me know your thoughts. Can Newcastle United cause an upset here? Tweet me - @grahamruthven!
Carson starts! There's no doubting where the biggest headline is ahead of this one - Carson starts his first Premier League game in 10 YEARS! Incredible! Guardiola is giving him a run out!
