Manchester City star Raheem Sterling got away with a truly horrific challenge on Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi in yesterday’s FA Cup clash.
The Gunners ended up winning 2-0 in a surprise result at Wembley, but some will feel they should have been given a bit more help here as Sterling was perhaps lucky to stay on the pitch…

You don’t have to be a doctor to see that Sterling stamped on Mustafi’s ankle and knees him in the hamstring ? pic.twitter.com/dvtBe1kAWI

See the video above as Sterling not only stamps on Mustafi’s leg, but also digs his knee into the German’s thigh on the way down.
The commentators oddly brush it off, but this really could have been a lot worse for Mustafi and Sterling should have got in trouble for such dangerous play.
