City march on with 18th straight league win
Manchester City's relentless assault on English football's record books continued Wednesday as a Raheem Sterling goal earned them a 1-0 win at Newcastle United to extend their extraordinary record of successive Premier League wins to 18. Sterling's fine 31st minute finish saw Guardiola's men improve their unbeaten league sequence this season to 20 games and stretch their yawning gap at the top of the league to 15 points on a night where they dominated but were very wasteful. Rafael Benitez started with the most negative approach St James' Park can ever have seen from a Newcastle side, allowing City to monopolise proceeding before Sterling finally broke their resistance with his 13th league goal of the season. City hit the woodwork three times in total - twice from Sergio Aguero and once from Kevin de Bruyne - and they nearly paid for their profligacy in front of goal when Dwight Gayle headed wide late on for Newcastle. RESULT Newcastle 0 1 Man City (Sterling 31)   THURSDAY'S MATCH Palace v Arsenal
