Manchester City duo Vincent Kompany and David Silva were lucky they didn't see red
- Vincent Kompany should have booked when he pulled down Marcus Rashford
- It was a mistake by the Manchester City captain in the early stages of the game
- I can only assume that Andre Marriner and his assistant were watching the ball
Vincent Kompany should have been booked when he recalled Marcus Rashford in the first minutes.
It was a clear mistake of the defender when the United man chased a ball over the top, but it was missed by the officials. I can only assume that Andre Marriner and his assistant were watching the ball.
We can say that Kompany was the last man, but since Rashford had no control over the ball, it was not an obvious goal scoring opportunity, meaning that a yellow card should have been issued.

A little later Kompany was booked for a body check at Rashford. The captain of the city was therefore lucky not to go within 10 minutes.
And in the second half, David Silva was lucky not to see a red when he challenged a high ball and his stallions landed on Andreas Pereira's chest, putting the safety of his opponent at risk.
