Did Phil Bardsley foul James Milner just before scoring Sunderland winner v Man City? [GIF]
Phil Bardsley’s renaissance man routine continued against Manchester City on Sunday as Sunderland pulled off an excellent 1-0 victory.
It was of course, the fourth time in succession that Sunderland have beaten Manchester City 1-0 at home and was a significant result as Gus Poyet looks to lift his new side away from the relegation zone.
Yet, City were very unlucky with some of the decisions handed out by referee Mike Dean, not least the fact Seb Larsson got off scott free after an assault on Javi Garcia.
Nevertheless, the GIF above looks pretty clear cut, Bardsley appears to have elbowed Milner on the way to scoring Sunderland’s winner against Manchester City.
Whilst there has been uproar about Chelsea’s late penalty decision against West Brom, it is very surprising that Bardsley’s foul on Milner has barely been mentioned…
