Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling may have just relinquished penalty duties back to Kevin De Bruyne after the England international blazed his one over the Brighton crossbar this evening.
City were awarded a penalty in injury time after Kevin de Bruyne was taken down by the Brighton goalkeeper.
Raheem Sterling was the man to step up and unfortunately for him the 26-year-old got his angles all wrong and smashed the ball over the crossbar.

The miss wasn’t too costly though as City went on to win the game thanks to a beautiful goal by 20-year-old Phil Foden in the firs-half.
The win sees City move into third spot in the Premier League – four points off leaders Manchester United with Guardiola’s men holding a game in hand.
The title race is wide open as no one team has managed to clinch a healthy lead and it’s anyones game with the next big crunch game coming next Sunday when second place Liverpool welcome Manchester United to Anfield.
