Newcastle 1-3 Man City: Alan Pardew set for 'dogfight'

Manager Alan Pardew admits Newcastle are in a "dogfight" after losing 3-1 to Manchester City, the sixth defeat of their last seven Premier League games.

The 51-year-old praises the champions' "great players" as Sergio Aguero opened the scoring before Javi Garcia made it 2-0 from David Silva's corner.

Pardew is pleased with his side's "reaction" as Demba Ba headed them back into the game but describes Yaya Toure's final goal as "disappointing".
