BBC Sport - Man City 5-0 Newcastle: Bad start cost Newcastle - John Carver

Bad start cost Newcastle - Carver

Newcastle manager John Carver says his side gave themselves "an uphill task" by conceding a penalty in the opening 30 seconds of their 5-0 defeat at Manchester City.

Sergio Agero converted the spot kick, and further goals from Edin Dzeko, Samir Nasri and a David Silva brace gave City their biggest Premier League victory of the season.

Newcastle have now failed to score in their last five Premier League games against Manchester City.
