Manuel Pellegrini blasts referee after penalty shout is waved on


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was outraged after a late penalty was not awarded by referee Roger East during his side's 0-0 draw at Everton.

The Chilean feels winger Raheem Sterling should have been awarded a penalty after he was tripped by John Stones late in the game.

The draw means the Citizens keep their third place in the table with Arsenal and Leicester City still leading the pack.

"Everyone in the stadium could see it, it was so near the referee and so clear," Pellegrini said.

"Both Raheem's [Sterling's] legs were taken by Stones but if he doesn't whistle we can't say anything.

"I don't want to continue talking about individual actions in a game. The referee must decide. I just give my views on the overall performance and that one decision.

"We did enough to win the game, especially in the second half. Maybe it was a close game in the first half with few chances but in the second half, we dominated possession and shots – I think we did enough to win.

"We deserved more than a draw.

"It's two dropped points – not because we're at home but because we had a lot of merits to win the game in a clear way.

"For different reasons, we couldn't score and of course if you drop two points here and others win away, it's not a good day for us.

"But we have 17 games left – normally we score here. I can't believe how many chances we had and how many saves their goalkeeper made."
