Manchester United v Manchester City: Premier League – live! – The Guardian

82 min: Raheem Sterling appeals for a penalty after going to ground under a challenge of sorts from Harry Maguire near the touchline on the left side of the United box.

It wasn’t the most heinous or obvious of fouls, but there’s no doubt that Maguire did put his hands on Sterling’s waist and tug him backwards. No spot-kick is forthcoming.

It was an epically stupid gamble by Maguire – Sterling had his back to goal and was in no danger of getting a shot away, let alone scoring.
