In the 91st minute of Manchester City’s 1-0 win against Brighton, the Citizens had the chance to come away with a two-goal win when Kevin de Bruyne won a penalty.

The playmaker was brought down by rushing Brighton stopper Roberto Sanchez after the tireless midfielder reached the ball first after a disastrous header backwards from Lewis Dunk.

In surprising scenes, De Bruyne – the usual penalty taker for Pep Guardiola’s side – did not step up to the spot, instead Raheem Sterling took the mantle.

The England international fired the ball well over the bar with a disastrous penalty attempt, marking shocking miss from the forward.
