SECONDS OUT PELLE.
Byline: JAMES NURSEY
MANUEL PELLEGRINI was left to rue "one second" of madness from Kevin De Bruyne as City dropped vital points.
They should have won as they blew three clear chances in the six-yard box in the second half.
Raheem Sterling was denied by keeper Brad Guzan and Fernando headed against the bar.
But De Bruyne was guilty of the worst miss as he chose a backflick to convert sub Jesus Navas' cross only to miscue it.
City boss Pellegrini reflected: "Maybe we took more difficult options to score than easy ones.
"Those are decisions the player had in one second and he decided that was the way to finish. I am disappointed."
