Manchester City did not survive the first round of the Carabao Cup. Isaac scored for the Nationals by scoring after halftime. Jeremy Doku eventually came off the bench, but the Red Devils were also unable to erase the deficit.
It was a serious test for both teams in the first round of the cup, yet both teams started with several new names. City seemed to be the least bothered by this as the visitors were in control before the end of the first half.
But Manchester City did not benefit from controlling the field, as Julian Alvarez wasted two great chances in the opening match.
Such a lack of competence is simply punishable at this level. Newcastle came out of the dressing room rejuvenated and searched for the goal with new energy. And soon it came. Isak followed Joelinton’s attack well and easily scored 1-0.
Euphoria among the home team’s fans, but the joy did not last long for the striker. He had to leave after an hour due to injury.
Pep Guardiola tried to respond and brought on Jérémie Doku, among others, but it was too late.
This action by Doku yielded nothing
Winning goal for Newcastle
