Manchester City supporters take to Twitter to revel in their side’s 2-0 win against Newcastle United at St James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday.

Manchester City kicked off their 2014-15 Premier League campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday.

Goals from David Silva and Sergio Aguero saw the Citizens begin the defence of their title by picking up all three points away from home (click here to read more).

It was a pretty straight-forward win for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, who dominated the opening stages and took the lead in the 38th minute.

Yaya Toure floated in a long ball from midfield which Edin Dzeko back-heeled towards Silva, who then slotted home past Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul with ease.

Although Alan Pardew’s team stepped up their game in the second half and put the City defence under pressure in the closing stages, the visitors had the last laugh.

Aguero, who came on as a substitute in the 83rd minute, scored from close range in injury time after seeing his initial shot from an acute angle saved by Krul.

Following the match, City fans took to social networking site Twitter to revel in their team’s victory and their performance.

Below is a selection of the Manchester club’s supporters’ tweets.
