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.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
