Sterling unhappy as referee refused award him penalty in Manchester City loss to Chelsea

Manchester City skipper for the day Raheem Sterling was bewildered as to why he wasn’t awarded a penalty late on.

The winger was clear inside the box and went down under the challenge of Kurt Zouma who was caught wrong side.

Anthony Taylor waved play on and VAR agreed. But Sterling said between them, they got the decision wrong.

The Manchester City captain said: “It’s a difficult one to take. We had chances to finish the game off and we didn’t and got punished. Simple as that.

“For me, I couldn’t get a shot away as his knee went into my hamstring. I don’t know how it’s not a penalty, I don’t know how it’s not been reviewed properly.

“The ref said it had been reviewed. Personally, I knew it was a penalty.I thought VAR was meant to be here to help? But it wasn’t meant to be.”
