Kevin De Bruyne FUMING with referee after being tripped by official before RB Leipzig go up other end and score

Play wasn’t halted, with RB Leipzig rapidly counter-attacking down the field.

And when Christopher Nkunku subsequently nodded the ball past Ederson, the 30-year-old was visibly furious.

De Bruyne berated Gozubuyuk after the goal.

But there was nothing the official could do but award the effort, which brought the German side back into the game at 3-2.

The match had already seen its fair share of chaos, with City’s second goal also possessing a farcical element.

Danger hadn’t seemed imminent, when De Bruyne whipped in a cross from the right in the 28th minute.

But defender Nordi Mukiele endured a moment he’d rather forget, nodding past his own helpless goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi and into the back of the net.

De Bruyne needn’t have worried after his referee run-in, however, with City not taking long to restore their two goal lead after Leipzig’s controversial second.

Jack Grealish curled past Gulacsi just five minutes later, and despite Nkunku completing his hat-trick, City romped to a 6-3 victory.
