PITCH INVADER

Injured Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy was chased by stewards who thought he was a pitch invader after their 2-1 win over Liverpool on Thursday.

Mendy has been recovering from knee surgery but that did not stop him from joining in the celebrations at full-time following the win at the Etihad.

The only problem was that stewards chased him onto the pitch as the defender embraced Sergio Aguero mistaking him for a pitch invader, but quickly realised who it was before tackling him to the ground.

The France international later posted a picture of himself and Aguero on Twitter saying: “Love you more than your wife bro @10sergioaguerokun.”

Mendy also retweeted a video of the steward chasing him with the words “bro was about to tackle me”.

In the absence of the defender, French centre-back Aymeric Laporte was forced to fill in at left-back in a new-look City defence. Oleksander Zinchenko was dropped from the team following their win over Southampton.

City closed the gap on league leaders Liverpool to just four points after their 2-1 win at home.
