Raheem Sterling scored in the 97th minute as Manchester City won 2-1 against Bournemouth.
Manchester City showed tremendous resilience and fought back to seal full three points after scoring deep into the stoppage time against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.
The home side took the lead in the 13th minute when Charlie Daniels drilled home a stunning half-volley off the crossbar.
Eight minutes later, Gabriel Jesus restored parity after being picked out by a measuredly weighted pass by David Silva.
Just when it looked like City would drop points, Raheem Sterling stepped up to the plate, and scored deep into the stoppage time, sparking wild celebrations.
The former Liverpool winger was sent off soon after for his celebration by referee Mike Dean, leading to wide criticisms from football pundits.
The football law states that players must be cautioned if they "approach the spectators in a manner which can cause safety and/or security issues".
Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City manager, was shocked with the decision, saying if the players cannot celebrate with the fans, then there’s no need to invite the fans on to the ground.
Former Newcastle striker and BBC Match of the Day pundit, Alan Shearer, took to Twitter to express his views.
Don't give me 'it's the law' nonsense. Mike Dean has clearly never experienced scoring the winning goal! #BOUMCI— Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) August 26, 2017
And for all saying 'but it is the law' if we are going to rigidly apply law with no common sense, why did he only book Sterling?!— Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) August 26, 2017
Former QPR striker Bobby Zamora also expressed his opinion on Twitter.
