Sterling scores, sent off for sparking melee
    2017-August-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

MANCHESTER City winger Raheem Sterling was sent off for exuberantly celebrating a stoppage-time winner that led to fans spilling onto the pitch at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Sterling was shown a second yellow card of the game after celebrating scoring in the seventh minute of stoppage time among jubilant away fans to clinch a 2-1 victory in the English Premier League.

As City fans leapt on the field, City striker Sergio Aguero also exchanged words with a policeman and Benjamin Mendy was held back by other officers.

A Bournemouth steward claimed to have been assaulted by Aguero but the club said the police complaint was later withdrawn.

“If you cannot celebrate with the fans, the best solution is not to invite the fans,” City manager Pep Guardiola said.

Bournemouth was left with nothing to show for a strong showing after City forward Gabriel Jesus initially canceled out a fine strike from Charlie Daniels.

Before Sterling’s strike looped in off Andrew Surman on the south coast, it looked as though Guardiola was going to be left frustrated for the second time in a week following the home draw against Everton.

“It is absolute madness,” City captain Vincent Kompany said. “Just like we had against Everton, the few chances we have, we maybe don’t score them. Today we deserved to win but they made it incredibly hard for us.”
