THE BIGGER PICTURE: Fans watching the game were quick to spot the strange moment and were happy to enjoy themselves at the Man City defender's expense.
Bernardo Silva wasn't ready.
And looked terrified at the ball screaming towards him.
Could he have reacted better?
At least it provided entertainment in a slow first half!
WHAT NEXT FOR MAN CITY? Pep Guardiola's side take on Chelsea again on Sunday when the two teams meet once more in the third round of the FA Cup.
