Ghana winger Christian has expressed delight in Newcastle United's stunning win over champions Manchester City in the English Premier League on Wednesday night. 

Newcastle United shocked Manchester City after defeating Pep Guardiola's men 2-1 at the Saint James Park to send them five points off the relegation zone.

Sergio Aguero opened the scoring after just 24 seconds but the Blues failed to capitalise on the early lead.

The Magpies drew level on 66 minutes before Matt Ritchie converted from the spot with ten minutes to play to inflict City’s fourth defeat of the season.

The Ghanaian international lasted until the 87th minute before he was replaced by Kennedy.
