UN. the controversy led to a scuffle between City players and referees in the tunnel after the final whistle. Jack Grealish, who opened the scoring, was seen protesting with Attwell at the exit. These discussions continued on the way to the locker room.
“To be honest, it’s a joke that the 1st but it was granted. Rashford is clearly offside,” said defender Manuel Akanji. “He runs until the last second and only stops because Bruno is behind him.

😱 Pep completely speechless: EPL bottom light is currently showing Man City!
Manchester City are out for Southampton FC, so the star-studded second-place side will face Premier League bottoms. Clear matter then, right?
One would think so, at least not today. At the break, the Skyblues are 0-2 behind because the Saints have excellently countered twice. The second goal had a slight spectacle character as Moussa Djenepo sent the ball a good 25 yards above a bewildered Stefan Ortega in goal.
Ortega between the posts? Yes, because it’s not a league match, but the quarter-finals of the League Cup. With Ederson, Kevin de Bruyne or Erling Haaland, Pep Guardiola is saving a few stars for this occasion. With João Cancelo, İlkay Gündoğan or world champion Julián Álvarez, there are still enough top players on the pitch.
