Manchester City’s Kyle Walker escapes penalty

An Etihad Stadium that appeared close to full sang songs about Guardiola but saw footballers of the class of Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gündogan, Fernandinho, Kyle Walker and Raheem Sterling labour. Actual shots were collector’s items from those in sky blue and Southampton were eager to counter-thrust via bursts from Nathan Redmond and Adam Armstrong.
Disaster appeared to strike the hosts on the hour when Walker ceded possession and had to scurry back, only to bring Armstrong down. Jonathan Moss gave a penalty and showed Walker a red card. VAR ordered him to the monitor, and the referee decided the right-back crashed into Armstrong as the latter wrapped a leg around the ball, so overturned his decisions. If Moss adjudged this a clear and obvious error, the official may wish to consult a dictionary to reacquaint himself with the terms’ definitions.
“We had the feeling it was not a clear, wrong decision,” said the Southampton manager, Ralph Hasenhüttl. “When he has the feeling it is a clear wrong decision he has to overturn it – disappointing for us.”
Guardiola had seen enough. Fernandinho was substituted for Kevin De Bruyne to try and jump-start his side. Moments later, Riyad Mahrez was introduced for the clumsy Jesus.
This was a fixture City won 5-0 last term but how they would have loved a one-goal victory now. Initially they had Southampton backpedalling along both channels. Jack Grealish, City’s best hope, was turning in the sunshine along the left and floating the ball over to the right to draw applause.
Grealish shone in Wednesday’s win and was at it again. He showed a burst of electric pace to drive in behind and earn City’s first corner. Then came a Guardiola remonstration which, as is his style, directly followed a flowing move. Walker controlled neatly, fed Fernandinho who zipped the ball to Sterling. Saturday’s nominated No 9 swivelled and tapped to Gündogan who was barely beaten to it by Alex McCarthy.6th November 2021 at 11:36 am #240472Eric_JacksonParticipant
Yes, I remember this match. Watched it on TV and it was amazing. You very coolly conveyed the atmosphere that was at that moment. That day I made a bet on City, but unfortunately I never got my money.6th November 2021 at 2:01 pm #240476your_favorite_raccoonParticipant
Hello. Can you please tell me where you placed your bets and did not receive money? I had a similar story, but I was able to get my money back later. Maybe I can help you6th November 2021 at 5:16 pm #240478RobertGarrettParticipant
Never in my life have I met dishonest bookmakers. I take a very responsible approach to the choice of the office where I’ll give my money. I guess you’re just out of luck. I found my bookmaker when my friend shared with me fifa rankings. On the same site, it was possible to place bets and I used it. Of course, at first I read all the reviews. By the way, they were good. You can try your luck
