Anthony Gordon gets savage treatment after spying on Man City team talk
Anthony Gordon was mercilessly shoved by Ruben Dias after the Newcastle forward sneakily tried to eavesdrop on a Manchester City team talk.
A clip of the incident, which occurred during the second half of the champions' 2-0 win over the Magpies on Saturday, shows Gordon standing with his hands on his knees inches away from a group of City players receiving instructions from their coaches during a pause in the game.
He then turns his head towards the group in an attempt to listen in, but his antics are immediately spotted by Dias, who stomps over and gives his opponent the old heave-ho.

Fans on social media were split over the shove, with some praising Dias' reaction and others asking why he wasn't booked by the referee.
"Top stuff there from Dias. Has no time for bulls***," one supporter tweeted. Another agreed, saying: "What a legend, my defender all day," while a third fan added: "Gordon just accepts it like a little b****."
Others, however, thought the Portugal defender was out of line, with one fan arguing: "Absolutely no need for that from Dias. Just tell him to bugger off no need to push him."

Another said: "How has Dias not got booked for that? Or at least giving a telling off by the ref."
In any case, the former Everton star's eavesdropping did little good, with Newcastle falling to their third defeat in as many games and extended their winless run to five matches.
Gordon has started just one match since his £40m move to St James' Park in January and is yet to be on the winning team for his new side.
