Maou Yanga-Mbiwa: Is likely to feature at centre back with Steven Taylor suspend

City were rampant over a Newcastle side that struggled to contain their host's attacking threat, even before Steven Taylor was sent off before half-time for a stray arm on Sergio Aguero.

The France international, who was forced to play out of position at left-back following an injury to Davide Santon, is well aware that such defeats could significantly damage team morale, but wants the players to move on swiftly.

"It was difficult to lose and even more difficult to lose like that," Yanga-Mbiwa said.

"A 4-0 defeat does not look good on us. It was bad for the players and for the fans. But we must not let this result ruin our season.

"We have two home games coming up and it's up to us to work hard and move on from what happened."

Newcastle now face two home games against West Ham and Fulham, both of which games Steven Taylor will miss through suspension.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
