Gvardiol has impressed with the Blues during the opening games of the season. However, as three Newcastle attackers flew towards him, he was there as a one-man defence.

The Croatian centre-back has already won his first title with City. And he made his home debut against Newcastle on Saturday night in a crucial and inspired victory.
While almost all hope seemed lost with a number of key players missing and a bench of predominantly youngsters, the Blues put on a professional display.
There was a moment in which the home debutant found himself the last man with three attackers on the counter. But he put a stop to that, holding up the attack whilst his teammates returned to position.
A great start to his Manchester City career so far.
