Pavlov’s horror tackle landed on Sane’s ankle and left the German wriggling on the ground.

Man City manager Pep Guardiola pleaded to referees for more protection for players after the FA Cup game.
"For football in general players are the artists. The only thing they can do is protect them," Guardiola said.
"Referees have to protect - not just mine, all players. Sane will be out for a while. Maybe two or three weeks, or a month, we will see tomorrow. It's his ankle.
"I know my players, because it's not just one, there was many. They decided to play in that way. There is one man who has to decide what is correct and what is incorrect. If he doesn't anything can happen," Guardiola submitted.
