Pardew laments crowd influence on referee as City extend lead

Pardew laments crowd influence on referee as City extend lead”

"I would repeat what I said three or four days ago (about protecting my players) but that's not necessary".

'Three of my games were against Bilbao, Europa League quarter-finals and a league game.

The 23-year-old is also capable driving into the middle of the park to find a team-mate as he's good on the ball and has great tactical awareness.

The Frenchman looked well and truly the "Rolls-Royce" defender that Pep Guardiola requires to strengthen his current batch of centre-back options. To put things into perspective, John Stones is yet to create a single goalscoring opportunity this season, highlighting Laporte's ability to contribute to other facets of play, something that definitely piqued Guardiola's interest. The England global has certainly come on leaps and bounds under Guardiola's stewardship and has looked in good form this season for the Citizens.

"I think it's 13 months since they lost here, Everton are the only team to get a draw here, it's a daunting prospect". He believes in his philosophy, his values, playing out from the back.

Laporte, who became City's record signing when he joined for £57m from Spanish side Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday, was thrown straight into City's starting lineup for his Premier League debut a little over 24 hours later.

And after missing out on signing Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City, Guardiola has revealed that Nmecha could get a chance to impress. According to Neville, that was an uncharacteristic move from the leaders. I'm not sure if the referee saw it."I thought Pep's comments at the weekend affected the crowd". Everybody knows we were trying but we can not afford, in this moment, this amount of what they are asking.

"They have an opinion, I have another", Guardiola said. They don't strike me as the kind of guys who have woken up on a Sunday morning after Sane getting injured on the Saturday, and thought, "He's injured for five, six weeks... we need to spend £60m".
