Johnny On The Spot: A razor sharp Manchester City turned back the clocks with a circa 2011esque clinical dismantling of Newcastle and in doing so had Planet Blue bemoaning what might have been in this year's fizzled out title race...Having been confronted with Alan Pardew's parked bus and a clear plan to slow the game down through spoiling and time wasting, The Blues simply went up a gear...Pinpoint precision passing and sublime movement typified an approach that tore Toon to shreds. Samir Nasri enjoyed his finest showing of a frustrating season and his verve and energy was matched by that of Carlos Tévez who rattled up his 73rd City goal and David Silva who notched his 19th...To a man the City side were right on top of their game, passing the hapless Geordies to death to the tune of 542 to 303...This was the scintillating form that saw City threaten to run away with last year's title and it's welcome return could not be better timed as the squad prepare to head outside the city walls next week intent upon serving a reminder to the gloating Stretfords.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, talking to BBC Sport: "It was a good performance. It was not easy because Newcastle are a good team but we played very well. Maybe it is too late [for the title]. We had a lot of chances to score and I am happy. It was important, after Everton, to start winning again quickly....Samir Nasri played very well and if we play like this we won't have a problem in the last couple of months of the season. It's important to get second place and to win the FA Cup semi-final next week."
