NORDI MUKIELE was left sprawled on the turf with his head in his hands after scoring a dreadful own goal against Manchester City.

RB Leipzig had already gotten off to a bad start at the Etihad, with Nathan Ake having given Pep Guardiola's side the lead after 16 minutes.

And things got worse in sensational fashion, when Mukiele had a disastrous moment.

Things seemed innocuous enough, as Kevin De Bruyne sent in a cross from the right.

But Mukiele got into a terrible mix-up with goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi, nodding the ball past the wrong-footed Hungarian.

The dreadful error left the Frenchman devastated.

Christopher Nkunku's 42nd minute effort momentarily got Leipzig back in the game.

But Riyad Mahrez put City back into a commanding position from the penalty spot in first-half stoppage time.

Fans online weren't impressed, with one Manchester United supporter writing: "Swear the dumbest things happen for everyone but us."

While a City fan joked: "De Bruyne cross was so good so leipzig couldn't not finish it."

A third quipped: "Who needs Kane, sign this guy already."
