Wilfried Zaha was disgusted on Wednesday after losing to Raheem Sterling on FIFA 20 in the first round of the Premier League esports tournament.
In the absence of real football due to the coronavirus pandemic, Sterling’s Manchester City defeated Zaha’s Crystal Palace in a 5-4 thriller, and each of them scored with their own virtual players.
But it was Sergio Aguero’s tap-in – played over goal to give City a 4-3 lead – that made both stars laugh as they squabbled full-time.

Wilfried Zaha told Sky Sport: “He was actually in front of goal and sent him back. I’m not complaining, we both know it’s disgusting, you won. ‘
Raheem Sterling replied: ‘Listen Wilf, Crystal Palace is about to win the championship, it’s the last minute of the game, you’re in goal, Andros Townsend is next to you. To win the championship you have to pass the ball, right? ‘
WZ: ‘You didn’t pass it to the side, you passed it back.
‘How dare you compare those two, but you won brother, I can’t complain, but you said’ pass him to the side ‘, Aguero was not on the side.’
RS: ‘Now I go to my Instagram and ask my followers to type “disgusting” and “sweaty”. I am going to get that trend. ‘
WZ: ‘You’re a joke, you’re proud of yourself and you sat there smug.’
RS: ‘I’m proud of myself. I won and I can go to bed and sleep peacefully tonight. You won’t be happy when you sleep tonight.
WZ: ‘I’ll be ok.’
