I’d say both challenges were reckless.

And both could have led to serious injuries. Kompany’s studs were a little higher, so maybe his was *slightly* more reckless? But it was the same exact thing. Either tackle could have ended someone’s season. The difference is Mo Salah is Mo Salah, and Aguero is Aguero. And anyone calling Aguero a flopper, in comparison to Mo Salah, should rethink things.

As for Sterling, I don’t have the clip handy. But I remember watching it from multiple angles. Robertson saw Sterling was loose, broke down like he was trying to keep Sterling from dribbling past him into the paint, then clotheslined Sterling as he tried to run past him to the ball. But my memory has failed me before.

In any event, I think it’s fair to say City were fortunate to come away with three. Just as Pool were fortunate to avoid City coming away with three at Anfield.
