Man City secured a fourth Premier League win in a row with the help of Rodri's sixth goal of the season

Manchester City thrashed Newcastle United to go three points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte put City in control at the break as they blew away the cobwebs from Wednesday’s Champions League defeat at Real Madrid.

Rodri’s header just past the hour mark added a third for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Substitute Phil Foden made it four late on and there was time for Sterling’s second to round off the scoring.
