Manchester City were beaten by Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening, as the Blues rallied from a goal down to take all three points against Pep Guardiola’s men.

It was a very eventful game at the Etihad Stadium, with Raheem Sterling taking advantage of an Andreas Christensen error to score the opener very late in the first half.

Manchester City were then gifted a penalty shortly after their goal, but Sergio Aguero failed to score from the spot as he tried a ridiculous Panenka that never got the better of Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea will end up winning the game 2-1, with goals from Hakim Ziyech and Marcos Alonso sealing the win for Chelsea.

Aguero’s penalty miss became more painful for Manchester City after they lost the game, and the Argentine who has been linked with a move to Chelsea during the summer, apologised to his teammates and City fans after the game.

Aguero wrote on twitter: “I would like to apologise to my teammates, staff and supporters for missing the penalty. It was a bad decision and I take full responsibility.”

Meanwhile, a disappointed Pep Guardiola told Sky Sports after the game: “We missed our chance in the last minute of the first half with the penalty.

“It was Sergio’s decision [to take a Panenka], the taker has to make that decision. I always say decide and take it fully convinced, he decided to do it this way.”
