Manchester City may have beaten Stoke 2-0 on MNF, but the visitors passed up an unbelievable chance to add a third after a bizarre incident involving a drop ball.

With Pep Guardiola`s side coasting towards another win at the bet365 Stadium on Monday Night Football, referee Jonathan Moss awarded a drop ball inside Stoke`s half.

Stoke midfielder Badou Ndiaye reacted quickest to steal possession, but in his eagerness to win the ball back, the Senegal international handed it straight to Raheem Sterling.

The England international then raced clean through on goal, but after ignoring the unmarked Gabriel Jesus alongside him, rounding Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland and preparing to knock the ball into the empty net, Ndiaye raced back to make a brilliant goal-saving tackle on the City player!
