Kevin De Bruyne's Priceless Reaction To Nicolas Otamendi Fouling Harry Maguire
Kevin De Bruyne's priceless reaction to teammate Nicolas Otamendi fouling Harry Maguire late on in the Carabao Cup semi-final last night.
The Argentine centre-back has a knack for needlessly diving in and he couldn't resist a rash challenge on the United captain when he had the ball deep in City's half in the closing stages.
Otamendi lunged in and fouled the former Leicester City man, giving away a free-kick in a dangerous position as United searched for a second goal that would have made the tie 3-3 on aggregate.
De Bruyne watched on in complete and utter frustration, with his facial expressions and body language an accurate visual image of how every City fan was feeling in this moment.

Despite losing 1-0 on the night, Pep Guardiola's side are now in search of a third consecutive Carabao Cup final ater setting up a date with Aston Villa on 1 March.
Talking to Sky Sports about booking another appearance at Wembley, De Bruyne said: "If we win the final, nobody will talk about this game,"
"It's not nice and we should have done better but it's just the way it goes sometimes.
"It's beautiful. I've been lucky in the five years I've been here to go [to Wembley] seven or eight times now.
"It means we're doing really well. It's always a nice day and now we're going to fight to win the cup."
