Manchester City decimated Shakhtar Donetsk by putting six unreplied goals past them during their UEFA champions league encounter today at the Ethiad stadium. They now need at least a win from their remaining two matches to guarantee their passage to the next stage of the competition.
The main talking point is the the dubious penalty that was awarded to the English champions in the first half despite being two goals up before the half of an hour mark during the encounter.
England International, Raheem Sterling, busted into the opposition area on a marauding run and without anybody close to him, he tripped and fell down then the Referee pointed to the penalty spot immediately.
THAT IS A SHOCKER!

What people are saying:
That Manchester City penalty. Should Raheem Sterling not have told the referee he tripped himself up? Suppose that kind of honesty is difficult when your club is owned by Abu Dhabi… #MCISHKhttps://t.co/MmolUyxOKZ

Raheem Sterling now hitting such high levels at Man City that he can win penalties without being tripped or diving. Fair play
