Having already figured in both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup earlier this season, the 18-year-old was afforded his first taste of league action, coming on as second half substitute against the Magpies.
And as he reflected on another memorable evening at the Etihad, the midfielder – who is the grandson of late, great City legends Mike Doyle and Glyn Pardoe - said he was savouring every moment of being in around and the first team environment.
“I listen to every bit of information I get from the staff, manager and players and I was lucky enough to be able to get out on the pitch and to play a part. It was a massive occasion for me," said Tommy.
"Phil and I have a good relationship and he tells me a lot of important information.
"As for David, he such a good person as well as an unbelievable player especially with young kids.
"Being able to play on the pitch alongside someone like David is massive for me. He helps us all so much."
