Manchester United fans are fuming after Kevin De Bruyne escaped with a yellow card for a horror tackle on Idrissa Gueye – just two weeks after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off for a similar challenge.
Wan-Bissaka received his marching orders against Young Boys a fortnight ago after going in over the top on Christopher Martins.
De Bruyne committed a similar challenge on former Everton star Gueye in the first-half of Manchester City'sChampions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain, but got away with it and was shown only a yellow card.
The challenge looked worthy of a red, and most most neutral fans on social media were surprised when the Belgian midfielder was allowed to remain on the pitch.
United fans, however, couldn't believe the decision and decried double standards after the Wan-Bissaka incident, complaining about inconsistency in officiating and calling the decision a joke.
One Twitter user wrote: "lol when utd players make a challenge like the de bruyne one everyone says they should get a red card."
Someone else said: "That shows the inconsistency of refs not saying de Bruyne should be sent off necessarily but AWB literally got a red for the exact same thing."
Another added: "So how’s that only a yellow for De Bruyne, when Wan-Bissaka got a red last week."

A fourth person begged: "Surely De Bruyne will get a red, AWB did the exact same against young boys and got an immediate red… this will show if there’s bias or not."
"That’s a red for de bruyne if it was for AWB actually f*** off this bias is insane," added another, while someone else moaned: "Wan-Bissaka straight red card, de Bruyne yellow. LITERALLY exact same tackle. Absolute joke."
De Bruyne was fortunate to remain on the pitch, but even with his continued presence,, City were unable to overturn a 1-0 deficit going into the half-time break following Gueye's opener.
