What Alan Shearer and Micah Richard said about Newcastle wining against Man city in Carabao in cup

Alan Shearer, a Newcastle United icon, has been rubbing the Magpies’ Carabao Cup victory over Manchester City in the face of Micah Richards.

Following Newcastle’s 1-0 win over last season’s triple winners, Shearer and the former Manchester City defender spoke on the Rest Is Football podcast.

It was a shocking night at St James’ Park, where Alexander Isak’s goal guided Newcastle to a famous win.

It means the Magpies will meet Manchester United in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. Man City’s quadruple aspirations have been dashed.

While Guardiola praised Newcastle and their players after the game, he was not pleased.

But Shearer and the rest of the Newcastle fans are unconcerned, and the club’s all-time leading scorer was not buying Richards’ BS in the aftermath of the 1-0 victory.

Shearer recalls how Newcastle ‘battered’ Manchester City.
Richards quickly took issue with Shearer praising Newcastle’s triumph against Manchester City on the latest episode of the Rest Is Football podcast.

“Hold on, you got battered in the first half!” Richards says. “What are you on about?”

“And you got battered in the second half, Micah!” Shearer says. I warned you about going down the slope! It was too much for your boys to bear. Pep complained about kicking them. Are you not authorized to take on Manchester City at this time? “What is going on?”

Shearer puts Richards in his place
Richards is right, Man City did batter us in the first half. They battered us 0-0.

But unfortunately for Man City and for Richards, there was a second half. And it was a second half where Newcastle were much better, got in City’s faces and actually found the net.

On the balance of play, it was an even game. Each side had their own 45 minutes of joy, but the Magpies were the only team to capitalise.

Newcastle were more physical in the second half and got close to City, much to Guardiola’s fury. However, the only tackle that overstepped the line was Kalvin Phillips’ on Jacob Murphy. Had VAR been used, he would have seen red.

Manchester City can have no complaints. They did not make the most of their dominance, nor could they handle Newcastle when they came out swinging.
