Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva scored within four minutes to keep City’s perfect start to their Premier League championship defense intact after Newcastle had a two-goal lead after 54 minutes.
Ilkay Gundogan was left unmarked by Silva’s pass in the fifth minute and could take a touch before shooting past Nick Pope.
Before the hosts equalized with Miguel Almiron sliding in to meet Allan Saint-pass, Maximin, the England goalkeeper, made several saves. After a video assistance review overturned an initial offside judgment, the goal was awarded.
Saint-Maximin, who is superb, attacked the City defense before passing to Callum Wilson, who took a touch to open up space and scored Newcastle’s first goal.
The visitors had an opportunity to tie the score, but Pope deflected Haaland’s shot onto the post. Meanwhile, Kieran Trippier, who Manchester City sold in 2012 after graduating from their academy, scored brilliantly with a fantastic 25-yard free-kick.
Rodri’s assist allowed Haaland to score from within the six-yard box to make it 1-1 before Silva equalized a brilliant through ball from Kevin de Bruyne.
With Trippier receiving a red card for a knee-high trip on De Bruyne, Newcastle mistakenly believed they were down to 10 men. However, after re-watching the event on a pitchside monitor, referee Jarred Gillett lowered it to a yellow, and both teams earned a point.
