Clement: Referee Should Not Have Allowed City Goal

share on:

Paul Clement believes Manchester City’s second goal came as a result of a freekick that should not have been given.

Gylfi Sigurdsson restored parity in the 81st minute after Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring, only for the 19-year-old to score the winner from a freekick.

Clement believes Mike Dean made a mistake in awarding the freekick that led to the goal.

“The late goal, the circumstances I’m really disappointed about,” Clement told Sky Sports.

“First of all I don’t think it’s a foul from [Luciano] Narsingh on [Aleksandar] Kolarov. I think Kolarov went into a challenge on Narsingh and then Narsingh got out the way of him and he fell across him.

“So it’s not a foul and then the restart was 15 metres deeper than where the free-kick was – and it was a rolling ball – so those things have to be right for us.

“If the free-kick is taken where it should have been, we are in position and I don’t believe they would have had that attack.”
