Manchester, Jan 21 : Manchester City bounced back in style after its first loss of the English Premier League (EPL) season, handily defeating Newcastle United 3-1 Saturday thanks to a hat-trick by Sergio "Kun" Agüero.

Less than a week after a 4-3 away loss to Liverpool, the Citizens got on the board in the first half at City of Manchester Stadium when Agüero got just enough of his head on a cross from Kevin De Bruyne to beat the Newcastle goalkeeper, reports Efe. 

The Argentine increased the hosts lead with a penalty just under 20 minutes into the second half.

After Jacob Murphy pulled one back for Newcastle in the 67th minute, Agüero notched his third goal on a play set up by a run from midfield by Leroy Sane.
