WHAT HAPPENED? Burn tripped Grealish before stumbling over the City winger. The Newcastle defender appeared to take issue with Grealish's reaction and said some strong words in his direction.

After a heated exchange the big Norwegian then left with a smile on his face, as both players received bookings for their actions.
