A SPOT OF BOTHER

The Observer - Sport - - SPORT FOOTBALL -

Riyad Mahrez slips back­wards as he ad­dresses the spot-kick awarded af­ter the Leicester player had been felled by Gaël Clichy. Mahrez goes to strike the ball with his left but loses his foot­ing in the act of shoot­ing. As a re­sult he kicks the ball against his right boot and though it loops past Willy Ca­ballero it is a dou­ble hit, so it is dis­al­lowed by the ref­eree, Robert Madley. Free-kick for Manch­ester City. The cor­rect de­ci­sion but an aw­ful break for Leicester.
