Tim Sherwood says Joe Hart should have been sent off
Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood said refereeing decisions cost his side a probable victory at Manchester City.
With the score 2-2 in the 87th minute, Villa's Christian Benteke was flagged offside before City's Joe Hart appeared to foul him as play was halted.
Seventy-five seconds later Fernandinho hooked home City's winner.
"I could see Benteke was onside from where I was. It is a penalty and a red card for Joe Hart - we should have won the game," said Sherwood.
"I'm satisfied with the performance, but I can't be satisfied with the decisions that have gone against us."
Villa enjoyed more possession (55%) and had more shots (13 to 11) than City, and seemed to have rescued a point when Tom Cleverley and Carlos Sanchez's goals cancelled out Sergio Aguero and Aleksandar Kolorov's earlier efforts.
"Today's results do not concern me. What? We play like that and get relegated? You are having a laugh aren't you?," he added.
