Raheem Sterling’s Sitter Miss Costs City Vital 3 Points

Premier league leaders Manchester City were forced to a 1-1 draw in their away clash against Burnley, who would probably be counting themselves as a lucky side.

No thanks to Manchester City forward and England international Raheem Sterling who missed out on a sitter from a couple of yards in the 74th minutes and failed to put City in comfortable lead.

The winger threw himself at a ball across the box and somehow puts it wide, and a few minutes later City boss Pep Guardiola had him substituted with Brahim Diaz coming from the bench.

Guardiola’s decision to bring in Diaz did not be of good benefit to his team, as Diaz gave out the ball away to the opponent, putting City in tight situations.

Burnley leveled up through Johann Berg goal in the 82nd minutes and the camera flashes at Raheem Sterling who got his hands on his head after missing the sitter at 1-0.

The draw means Guardiola’s men may risk losing two points from their initial 15 points lead, but that will be subject to the outcome of the match between Manchester United and Huddersfield.
