Another disgraceful decision against City. Should have been a penalty and red card and then they go and score a second. You come to expect it as a City fan.
Hmm, commentator whining aside, I thought it was fairly obvious that Aguero knocked the ball past then started diving before contact came. Yes, there was contact, but it was also simulation - live by the sword, etc
Are you serious ffs? Catch yourself on
Watching the replays now - Aguero has both feet in the air as he's propelling himself into the dive, well before contact is made.

9/10 times that gets you a penalty.

1/10 the ref thinks you're a twat.

Now that's a penalty

Possibly the worst on target penalty ever taken at that

That doesn't change the nature of what happened. Aguero dived well before contact - needlessly slow. Most of the time you get away with it. He didn't today.

Otamendi goes through the back of a striker and gives away a pen. Falcao misses. Terrible penalty.

Did anybody think John Stones was worth more than 10 million quid? He is such a hopeless defender.

Yep. Astonishing really, although from what I understand Leicester are having a horrorshow of a season. But sacking the bloke who took you from relegation risk to the title in the space of a season less than a year after the latter is, to say the least, cold

Arsenal know if they get rid of Arsene they could drop out of the top four and possibly not return in the foreseeable future. ManUre have literally thrown hundreds of millions of pounds at it since Fergie retired and are still not in the top four.
