“Newcastle was one of the greatest of my life, honestly,” Oscar Bobb said after his first league goal.

“This season has been a big step up. Playing in this team, it gets a lot easier because (while) you’re not always dominating, usually you see a lot of the ball.

“For me as a player, I’m more of a ball player than a runner and that helps. Being in this group and with these people helps me,” he said.

Pep Guardiola described the Norwegian as a great talent from the academy. He stated his quality has earned him playing time as the youngster fixtured for the Cityzens in 16 matches in all competitions.

“He is a guy who receives the ball as a striker in the pockets and his first turn – he is quite similar to Phil (Foden).

“He is an incredible threat – he was lucky for the goal but he has to be there and after he had two or three shots blocked,” the City boss said after Oscar Bobb scored against Huddersfield Town in the Emirate FA Cup.

“It’s another 90 minutes and always he has played – in pre-season, in the Red Star game, and as a substitute – at a high, high level.

“It’s another player from the Academy coming here and it’s good.”
