The pundit was not amused to see the likes of Jack Grealish targeted by projectiles, no matter how harmless they were

Former Manchester United and England defender Gary Neville took a dim view of Leeds United fans throwing paper balls at City players during Saturday's Premier League game.

City suffered few inconveniences in taking the Whites apart at Elland Road, winning 4-0 in another dominant performance to retake the summit from Liverpool.

But Neville, commenting on the game for Sky Sports, was not impressed with the behaviour of the home support.
