Newcastle's failure to convert possession into chances meant quiet afternoon for England international. Helpless for goal.
Shaky stuff from the experienced Ivorian. Failed to snuff out threat from the isolated Ameobi and lost nearly every physical battle. Booked.
First home Premier League start for City saw delightful chipped ball to Tevez force penalty. That was to be the highlight as the Germany international was regularly skinned by goalscorer Gutierrez. Needs to get back to basic and cut out party tricks. Booked.
Fortunate not to concede penalty after Johnson's goal when he clumsily swept Ameobi's legs in only moment of note.
Weak clearance on the stretch fell straight to the grateful Gutierrez to level the scores, although the giant Belgian could have claimed a foul from Ameobi in the build-up.
Showed flashes of inspiration as he linked up play with Tevez, Yaya Toure and Milner. Steadily adapting to physical Premier League environment.
Continued presence in City side remains a mystery. Neither industrious in defence or adventurous in attack. Hooked for Johnson.
Victim of Mancini's initial tactics. Regularly got behind the Magpies' back line, real threat when allowed to cross but had no-one to aim for. Afternoon improved upon Adebayor's introduction.
N. de Jong
Borderline legal tackle in the second minute led to a worrying injury for Newcastle danger man Ben Arfa. Incredibly lucky to be spared yellow card but could have argued red for excessive force. Continued to smash into the opposition in trademark style.
Not as prominent as in other matches as City looked to attack from out wide. Removed for Adebayor as Mancini went on hunt for winner.
Latched on to Boateng's pass and then scythed down by Williamson to win penalty. Converted with usual authority. Mancini's stifling tactics seemed to take smile from face. Criminally denied support from central midfield runners. Sacrificed for Vieira towards end. Booked.
Stood up tall to City attacks and showed safe hands on number of crosses.
Uncomfortable at this level. Barely got a tackle in all afternoon. Blushes saved by lack of targets for City's wide men to hit. Left in pain by Lescott's studs but soldiered on.
Luckiest man on the pitch after referee Martin Atkinson failed to send him off for taking down Tevez for penalty. Could sight slightest nick on ball but seemed to take man first. Hughton's decision to play high line repeatedly exposed weakness to pace. Missed best chance of day when sent header over the bar from a corner. Booked.
Teamed up well with Gutierrez to take advantage of Boateng's inability to defend. Guilty of same syndrome as opposite number, however. Alternating wingers Silva and Milner enjoyed space afforded.
Showed South American touch with tee up and volley which was well saved by Hart. Taken off early with injury for Campbell. Booked.
Revelled in animosity from ex-home crowd. Formed all action partnership with Tiote to help his side dominate possession in spells.
Promising stuff from the summer signing. Edged battle with Ivory Coast team-mate Yaya Toure and showed quick footwork. Snapped in with several well timed tackles and interceptions.
H. Ben Arfa
Stretchered off sucking on oxygen in the opening minutes after lengthy treatment following a Nigel de Jong tackle. It might be a long time before the Newcastle fans see their exciting loan star again.
Unable to free himself from de Jong's attention. Lack of pace and guile left Ameobi all alone. Brought off for Carroll.
Lone striker battled hard to get involved and gave Kolo Toure a torrid time. Barged into Kompany to allow mistake for Newcastle's goal. Selfless stuff from the long-serving centre forward.

- 38 D. Boyata
Introduced on the 85 minute mark to shore up the City midfield.
Instant impact from 72nd minute substitute after he smashed the ball home after a typically incisive run. Surely can no longer be held back by Mancini.
- 27 Jô
Came on in 57th minute as Mancini moved to a 4-4-2 formation. Mere presence brought instant improvement from hosts.
- 14 R. Santa Cruz
- 33 O. Söderberg
Handed Premier League debut on 36 minutes for injured Coloccini. Used experienced and surprising turn of pace to track back and deny Adebayor.
- 16 R. Taylor
Earlier than expected introduction on seven minutes after Ben Arfa blow. Poor distribution followed on rare occasion involved.
Brought on in 76 minute after celebrations from Johnson's goal. Won fair share of headers but no clear chance fell his way.
