Many Newcastle United fans have been reacting on social media, after Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola offered an unenthusiastic verdict of Steve Bruce’s tactics during our 2-2 draw on Saturday.

Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to Guardiola’s comments…

A first-half strike from Jetro Willems and an 88th-minute hit from Jonjo Shelvey ensured the points were split at the weekend, after Raheem Sterling handed the Sky Blues the lead and Kevin de Bruyne later restored the visitor’s advantage.

With it, the Sky Blues attempted 24 shots of which just nine were on target, compared to our return of three shots on target from a total of six efforts, having enjoyed less than a quarter of the ball.

A large percentage of City’s play was also carried out in-between the halfway line and the edge of our penalty area, as they strived in search of openings that could lead to a goal.

“They defend solid, had 10 players in the box.

He way we played was really good, we created chances and 10 players in the box is not easy, [Martin] Dubravka made good saves.” The heatmaps recorded by WhoScored at the weekend showed Guardiola’s point regarding Bruce’s gameplan being defensive orientated, with our players recording more of their touches inside our penalty area than anywhere else on the pitch.
