Watch: Aleksandar Kolarov scores horrific own goal

The Premier League’s match of the weekend saw first place Manchester City visit second place Tottenham. From the moment the match kicked off the home side began brining the pressure towards Manchester City.

Right from the get-go Spurs were knocking on Manchester City’s door and it seemed like it would only be a matter of time before they got their breakthrough. It came just eight and a half minutes in, thanks to some horrifically bad defending from Manchester City’s Aleksandar Kolarov.

Look I get it. If I had to play a soccer game at 9:15 AM on a Sunday morning I would probably do exactly what Kolarov did there. But while it’s 9:15 AM for me, the game kicked off at 2:15 PM local time, so what’s your excuse Aleksandar?
