The Crystal Palace boss reacted strongly to a foul
by Yaya Toure in the first half of their clash with the
Premier League leaders at Selhurst Park.

Alan Pardew and Manuel Pellegrini were embroiled
in an angry touchline confrontation during Crystal
Palace's clash with Manchester City at Selhurst
Park on Saturday.
The two managers clashed on the touchline after
midfielder Yaya Toure was booked for a reckless
foul on James McArthur.

An angry Pardew approached the fourth official but
was then pushed back by Pellegrini who gestured
for him to return to his own technical area.

The two managers have, of course, something of a
history, with Pardew forced to apologise to Pellegrini
for swearing at the City boss during a 2-0 defeat as
Newcastle manager in January 2014.

City had already seen striker Sergio Aguero forced
off with injury after heavy challenges from McArthur
and Scott Dann.

The Argentina international was replaced after just
25 minutes by new signing Kevin de Bruyne, making
his debut for Pellegrini's side after his big-money
move from Wolfsburg.
