Manchester City's Sergio Agüero grabs assistant referee Sian Massey-Ellis during win over Arsenal (video)

Manchester City forward Sergio Agüero could find himself in hot water with the Premier League after grabbing assistant referee Sian Massey-Ellis by the shoulder during City’s 1-0 victory over Arsenal on Saturday.

The incident in question occurred just before halftime of the match in Manchester:

Gunners defender Gabriel appeared to clear the ball out of play off of Aguero’s foot. Massey-Ellis, a Premier League assistant ref since 2011 and one of the few female officials in England’s vaunted top flight, raised her flag and to signal for an Arsenal throw-in, much to the chagrin of the City striker.
