Moussa Sissoko had another good game for Newcastle and his brilliant cross-field pass to Vurnon Anita out on the right wing set up the first goal as Vurnon quite brilliantly turned inside and rifled the ball home past Joe Hart with his left foot.
That leveled the score after a Sergio Aguero goal after 14 minutes was allowed to stand even though Sergio was well offside.
But we were concerned about our manager being distracted by somebody on the touchline.

It happens that Moussa had his two young sons at the game last night and he brought them out as he led the team out but as one of them heard the massive roar from the crowd the toddler tried to run back inside but Moussa grabbed him and picked him up.
It seems one of the toddlers wanted to give Rafa some advice on the touchline.
Here’s some pictures of Mr. Sissoko Jr.
I’ll have a little rest
Better say hello to Mom
I’ll give Rafa my autograph – but how do I do that?
Who are those guys sitting there?
Hey – that’s my Dad over there
Better sit and watch the game in case I get into trouble
