Manchester City left-back Benjamin Mendy was a very lucky boy in last night’s game against Tottenham, as the video below shows.
The Frenchman was in a tussle with Tottenham ace Erik Lamela and totally lost his temper as he tried swinging a punch in the Argentine’s direction.

Luckily for both of them, he wasn’t really that close to making any contact, but the intent was certainly there.
Mendy is known for being a bit of a lovable character and is always a good laugh on social media, but he showed a nasty side here and is lucky not to have been punished.
? Benjamin Mendy qui perd son sang froid sur cette action défensive. On peut dire qu'il a eu de la chance bizarrement. Lamela semble lui porter trois coups de suite sur l'arrière du crâne … pic.twitter.com/sGdwcyFBI9
