(Video): Fernandinho attempts to intimidate Mason Mount with fake boot to the face

The Chelsea – Man City match is as poised as you might expect, and it will probably come down to some pretty fine margins in the end.

One rather large margin would be a red card – and it’s pretty easy to argue the case that Man City should have had one. Fernandinho decided to fake a boot to Mason Mount’s face as the midfielder lay on the floor, but none of the referees – or VAR – seemed to notice.

We’re not sure whether the City player actually made contact – but either way that kind of dangerous threatening gesture should certainly be punished in some form.

You can see the incident in the clip embedded here, with footage from the BBC:
