Wolves 1 - 1 Man City: Champions draw after controversial Wolves opener. Report as Man City drop points for the first time this season. After City hit the woodwork twice in the first half, Wolves took the lead in the most controversial fashion City, meanwhile, host Newcastle at 5.30pm on Saturday.

Sergio Aguero scored his 100th Premier League goal, but it wasn't enough to earn Manchester City three points, as Newcastle United fought back to secure a 1 - 1 draw on Tuesday. The Argentinian forward reached the century mark 14 minutes into the match at St. James' Park, but replays showed

In added time of stoppage time, a long ball was heaved into the box, which Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka attempted to catch under the crossbar, but the ball spilled through his hands under pressure from Boly, allowing the Wolves defender to head home and send Molineux into delirium.

Newcastle looked to have all three points in the bag when Isaac Hayden's strike had put them ahead midway through the second half, but Bolly, who looked to have fouled Dubraka before scoring, restored parity at the death.

The first half saw few efforts on goal, but Wolves could have gone ahead were it not for a smart save by Martin Dubravka, who did well to react quickly and deny Jimenez following the striker's powerfully driven shot.

Wolves enjoyed more of the ball in the first period, but could not find a way past the resolute Dubravka, as he got both hands behind the ball to keep out a fiercely struck effort from Jonny just before the interval.

Man Utd 2-2 Burnley: Report, Ratings & Reaction as Red Devils Steal Late Point From Spirited Clarets A late comeback from Manchester United preserved Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's unbeaten start at Old Trafford as Paul Pogba and Victor Lindelof ensured the Red Devils nicked a late point in a brilliant game against a spirited and organised Burnley on Tuesday night. United failed to register a shot on target in the first half as the visitors frustrated their hosts and Burnley soon took a shock lead when Jack Cork robbed Andreas Pereira in midfield and fed Ashley Barnes, who slammed into the roof of the net.

The Magpies could have taken the lead with the last action of the first half, though Connor Coady did well to get a touch to deflect Salomon Rondon's strike away from goal.

​Newcastle grabbed the lead against the run of play on 56 minutes, Isaac Hayden's strike creeping past the left hand of Rui Patricio, who should have done more to keep the ball out of the net.

The Magpies were on the verge of taking three points back to Tyneside before Boly's controversial equaliser meant that honours ended even in what was a thoroughly absorbing encounter.

Almiron leaves MLS for Newcastle on transfer deadline day

Almiron leaves MLS for Newcastle on transfer deadline day Miguel Almiron, one of the star players in Major League Soccer, became the most expensive signing in Newcastle's 127-year history on Thursday when he moved to the Premier League club from Atlanta United for a reported $27 million on transfer deadline day. Since buying Newcastle in 2007, much-criticized owner Mike Ashley has refused to sanction a transfer costing in excess of the 16 million pounds the club paid Real Madrid for England striker Michael Owen in 2005. That Ashley finally relented to sign Almiron underlines Newcastle's belief in the Paraguay international.

Key Talking Point

Having won seven of their last eleven games, Wolves would have expected to sweep aside Newcastle United, who have been under threat of relegation for much of the 2018/19 season so far.

However, the Magpies defended doggedly, not allowing the likes of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho any time or space on the ball to dictate the tempo of the contest.

As a result, it looked like they were going to be frustrated by the visitors, but Bolly's intervention spared Wolves' blushes in a scramble that will cause much debate after the goal was given despite Dubravka appearing to be impeded by several Wolves players.

Player Ratings

Starting XI: Patricio (4), Bennett (6), Coady (6), Boly (6), Doherty (7), Neves (7), Moutinho (6), Dendoncker (5), Jonny (6), Jota (6), Jimenez (7).

Player ratings . As the first half drew to a close, Benteke was too slow to react when Zaha's deflected shot was pushed into his path by Karl Darlow and Palace were frustrated again when Yohan Cabaye's half-volley lacked power and was held by the Newcastle goalkeeper.

Substitutes: Cavaleiro (6), Costa (6), Adama (6).


Despite being unable to get his name on the scoresheet, Raul Jimenez put in a tireless performance. His intelligent movement between the Newcastle centre-halves posed a real problem for the Magpies, who found it tricky to man-mark the Mexican.

It may seem a strange decision to name a forward as ​Wolves' best player in a match that required a defender to score, but Jimenez looked the most likely to strike for the hosts, although they were toothless in attack for much of the second half.

Even though Jimenez did not score, he demonstrated the quality that could see him become only the second Mexican to score ten or more goals in a Premier League season, after Javier Hernandez.


Rui Patricio did not cover himself in glory with the concession of Newcastle's goal.

The Portuguese international looked like he was anticipating Hayden's strike to go towards the far post, but was caught out when he couldn't get enough of his left glove behind the ball.

It was an incredibly soft goal to concede, especially given how dominant Wolves had been for the best part of an hour before the goal arrived, needless to say that Patricio will be kicking himself for his lapse of concentration.

Analyzing the Premier League relegation battle

Analyzing the Premier League relegation battle We analyze the bottom eight clubs and take a look at who will be relegated this season.

Newcastle recorded their first Premier League victory of the season as Ayoze Perez scored in a 1 -0 win over Watford on Saturday. Having failed to win any of their opening 10 league games of a season for just the second time in their history, the relief around St James Park' was clear to see when the

A first league win of the campaign sees Wolves move up to ninth in the table, while West Ham, who have only once before lost their opening four league matches of a season, stay Doherty and Coady kept their places as Nuno reverted to the starting line-up that drew 1 - 1 with Man City last weekend.


Key Talking Point

Newcastle were unlucky not to pick up a point in their last game on the road as they conceded late on to fall to a narrow defeat against ​Tottenham.

This time out, they were hard done by again, as Dubravka looked to have been fouled in the build-up to the goal.

However, a point is still something that Newcastle can be proud of after such a gutsy and united performance, though they will still view it as two points dropped.

Player Ratings

Starting XI: Dubravka (6), Schar (7), Lascelles (7), Lejeune (5), Yedlin (6), Ritchie (6), Hayden (7), Atsu (6), Longstaff (8*), Perez (6), Rondon (6).

Substitutes: Almiron (6), Diame (N/A), Manquillo (N/A).


The young Sean Longstaff was hugely impressive for Newcastle, demonstrating calmness and composure in the heart of midfield for the duration of the 90 minutes.

Longstaff only made his debut for the club on Boxing Day, but his performances in recent weeks have earned him a lot of praise, and the 21-year-old put in another exceptional shift for the Magpies at Molineux.

At such a young age, Longstaff must be given time to master all the intricacies and important details of the game, though he has made a simply stunning start to his career at Newcastle.


Although Newcastle did well to frustrate Wolves by getting men behind the ball, Florian Lejeune was suspect in the heart of the

Magpies defence.

His positioning was questionable on a number of occasions, as he allowed Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez too much freedom to exploit space in the wide channels that came by virtue of Newcastle playing three at the back.

Luckily for Lejeune, it was a night where a sub-par performance did not end up costing his team all three points in their bid to avoid relegation.

Looking Ahead

Wolves are in action in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup on Sunday, as they travel to Championship side Bristol City at 13:00 GMT.

Newcastle's next fixture sees them welcome Huddersfield to St. James' Park in the ​Premier League on Saturday, 23 February, with kick-off at 15:00 GMT.
