Watch: De Bruyne avoids red card for poor tackle, Man Utd Twitter erupts

Kevin de Bruyne playing for Manchester City against PSG

Kevin De Bruyne might consider himself a bit fortunate after avoiding a red card during Manchester City‘s 2-0 defeat to PSG. 

De Bruyne overstretched trying to challenge for the ball and fouled Idrissa Gueye, who had given PSG an early lead at the Parc des Princes. 

The Belgium international did initially get a toe to the ball but his follow through was incredibly dangerous and left Gueye in agony. Despite a lengthy stoppage and a VAR check, he only received a yellow card and was able to stay on the pitch.

A fortnight ago, Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka was shown a straight red card for a similar challenge on Young Boys’ Christopher Martins. United fans on Twitter reacted in the manner you might expect.
