Fans accuse Kevin De Bruyne of diving to win the penalty against Fulham

Manchester City captain Kevin De Bruyne has been accused of diving to win the injury-time penalty that won them the match against Fulham.

The midfielder went down dramatically after minimal contact from Fulham left-back Antonee Robinson.

The defender grazed De Bruyne’s heel, causing him to fall hysterically with his arms raised towards the referee.

City started the game in their typical fashion, taking the lead after 20 minutes with a goal from Julián Álvarez. But, minutes later, the game changed when Cancelo fouled Harry Wilson, who was clear on goal. The winger was sent off and Fulham received a penalty that Andreas Pereira calmly scored.

The game remained 1-1 until stoppage time, but Haaland’s 95th-minute goal gave City victory and returned them top of the table over Arsenal, who play Chelsea tomorrow.

The penalty decision has angered football fans, with many expressing their discontent on social media:

One fan said that if Salah had done the same, the media reaction would have been different. He tweeted:

A Manchester United supporter also tweeted his frustration comparing the incident to Jadon Sancho’s:
