Newcastle manager Steve Bruce told: "It took them a wonder goal for all the possession they had. We produced a bit of magic ourselves too, but of course, we had to defend and I think the players were magnificent in their work."
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola told: "We played at a good level. It was not easy because they defended deep. We scored two goals but we also let two in which is disappointing.
"With substitutions sometimes players forget positions. We found a way to get through but unfortunately at the end, we conceded a goal. There are teams that defend deeper like this, it happens all season.
"We do the same work we have done over the last few seasons. We tried to score more goals but it did not happen."
