Fernandinho Is Not Happy With The FA
Fernandinho has not been enjoying a friendly relationship with the FA this season, receiving two red cards in the Premier League which have left him serving a total of seven games suspension. And now the Brazilian midfielder has taken to social media to express his frustrations over two penalty decisions from this weekend.
When a Manchester City fan account posted a picture this afternoon highlighting the difference between two penalty decisions, one that was wrongly awarded - Laurent Koscielny against Burnley while he was in an offside position and one that wasn't awarded when it perhaps should have been - Kyle Walker's push on Raheem Sterling during Manchester City's 2-2 draw with Tottenham, yesterday.
Referees have really been under the microscope this season. Here's Garth Crooks analysing Mike Deane...
The picture was captioned 'One leads to a penalty and one doesn't' and was liked by none other than Fernandinho himself:

City's players and Pep Guardiola were furious with the decision to not give a penalty for Walker's shove on Sterling, which, if awarded, would have also resulted in a red card for the full back.
Instead, a minute or so later, Spurs equalised through Son Heung-Min, leaving Pep to pull his remaining three hairs out after seeing his team throw away a two goal lead in a vital game.
