A look at Man City's recent penalty record

On Sunday against Spurs, Ilkay Gundogan stepped up against recently returned Hugo Lloris and missed a penalty that would have given his side the lead. The look on Pep Guardiola’s face was priceless.

This was City's fourth missed penalty in their last six attempts in all competitions.

But, what’s the exact record this season?...

Sergio Aguero (3 penalties, 3 goals)

City’s leading goal scorer has a 100 percent record this term.

He has netted against West Ham and Watford in the Premier League and Atalanta in the Champions League.

Ilkay Gundogan (3 penalties, 2 goals)

His miss against Spurs is why we are doing this.

With Aguero not on the field, Gundogan scored against Leicester in December and Fulham in the FA Cup last week.

The Spurs miss has stained his record.

Gabriel Jesus (2 penalties, 0 goals)

The Brazilian was the choice when City was awarded a penalty against Atalanta at the San Siro in November but his weak effort dribbled tamely wide.

He had a chance to restore his confidence at the spot against Sheffield United last month but Dean Henderson saved.

Raheem Sterling (1 penalty, 0 goals)

The England forward was the man who stepped up at Wolves in December but Rui Patricio, the man who thwarted him in pre-season, twice denied him, from a first attempt and from a retake. Sterling was alert enough to score from the rebound from the retake, but it still counts as a miss.

Who will step up next? Riyad Mahrez or Kevin De Bruyne? Or will we see the above-mentioned try again?

We’ll see, given that City’s forwards have a lot of trickery inside the box and getting a penalty is always easy.
