Yaya Touré scored his third goal at St James’ Park in 2012 as Manchester City were 3-1 winners against Newcastle United on Saturday.

However, Roberto Mancini’s men failed to gain any ground on Manchester United, who eased to a 3-1 victory over Sunderland at Old Trafford, while Queens Park Rangers finally picked up three points this season.

Here is the best of the reaction from the professionals on Twitter.
