Manchester City fans felt aggrieved Chelsea star Marc Cucurella avoided punishment for "one of the worst dives ever seen" in their 4-4 draw.
Cucurella was already on a yellow card having given away the controversial penalty which Erling Haaland tucked home to open the scoring following his in-the-box tussle with the City goal machine. He was walking a tightrope for the final three-quarters of the match.
And many City fans felt the Spanish left-back fell off it when in the second half he leapt to the ground expecting a challenge from Phil Foden, who instead pulled his left leg out and was nowhere near him.

Referee Anthony Taylor had a great view of the incident but didn't blow up, much to the frustration of the opposition supporters watching on at home. One argued: "Marc Cucurella with one of the worst dives ever seen."
A second fumed: "Cucurella has to be sent off for that dive that’s shocking." A third vented: "Cucurella was already on a yellow and should’ve received a second one here. Doku was booked earlier for a lesser dive."
And a fourth echoed: "Doku got booked for diving and rightly so in my opinion. @FA_PGMOL @premierleague this is a dive, a second yellow. Just asking for consistency."

A fifth was able to see the funny side as they commented: "That Cucurella dive is too funny." While a sixth joked: "That Cucurella dive could be seen from the International Space Station."
As much as Cucurella probably should've been given a second booking, he could perhaps count himself unfortunate to have been on a yellow in the first place. Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher disagreed with the penalty decision which earned him the caution.

"I think that’s harsh for me, because it looks like half of one, half a dozen on the other between Haaland and Cucurella," said Carragher. "Cucurella initially is tight and aggressive with Haaland but Haaland also grabs hold of him.
"This is not the right decision because VAR wasn't looking at the start of the tussle, he’s got hold of his shirt which allows him to get in front and then he goes down.
"That's not right. It’s very harsh on Chelsea, VAR have only looked at the end of tussle. I think it’s harsh, I really do."
