In his first Premier League match since the first day of the season, Kevin de Bruyne of Manchester City spurred his team to a late comeback victory on Saturday, 3-2, over Newcastle United, With City losing 2-1 in the 69th minute, the key midfield player—out since August due to a hamstring injury—came off the bench to equalize with a brilliant low finish.

Subsequently, in stoppage time, he executed the ideal pass to fellow replacement Oscar Bobb, securing the three points that vaulted champions City into second place, two points behind Liverpool, After Bernardo Silva, who De Bruyne had replaced, gave City the lead in the 26th minute with an incredible close-range strike, Pep Guardiola’s team was quickly knocked back.

In the 35th minute, Anthony Gordon gave the home crowd a raucous celebration with a nearly identical finish, and two minutes later, Alexander Isak curled in an equalizer.

However, De Bruyne entered the game and motivated City to win; both teammates and supporters will be happy to have him back.

“I didn’t notice this. It is what it is; I required the time due to a serious injury. I had a good time. More willpower than anything else, in my opinion. De Bruyne told TNT Sports, “It was insane.”

“I’m aware that right now I can’t perform that for ninety minutes. Right now, I am able to work a 30-minute shift. I can feel it in my lungs, particularly in the winter.

“Getting the goal is a terrific feeling. The ball is fantastic, but the run from Oscar [Bobb] is incredible. He gave it his all. I watch him run. I can’t pass the ball if he doesn’t run.

“I believe that coming here is never easy. Everyone was ecstatic about me. We would like to try and contend for the league once more. Up there is where we are. The game was challenging,” Both De Bruyne’s comeback and his team’s tenacity impressed City manager Guardiola.

“That was excellent; sometimes, winning that manner benefits the team as a whole. We were a fantastic squad that had a lot of personality. They demonstrated to me their want to be present and their will to battle until the last end in order to keep the championship, Guardiola told the BBC.

I must admit that I am a little miffed and irritated with De Bruyne for failing to score on the free kick! Kevin and Oscar bring the finish line another tempo when the opposition is more worn out.”Oscar’s was an excellent control goal. We were quite impressed throughout the preseason, and I had heard good things about him from the second team.

“When Kevin has the ball and we have runners, Kevin is unique in the world but the finish by Oscar, I am so, so happy for him.”

After 20 games, City leads Liverpool with 43 points, while Newcastle dropped to 10th place in the standings after their fourth straight loss.
