Pictures show that Martin Demichelis’ challenge on Lionel Messi was definitely in the penalty area.

Photoshoppers have been up to their old tricks to show that the clumsy lunge from Demichelis, who was sent off for it, was just over the white line of the 18 yard box.

Irate City fans took to Twitter to protest as the referee awarded the penalty which pictures (actual pictures) showed to be narrowly outside of the box.

As you know by now, Twitter comes up with some great football related images and tonight was no exception with this cracking effort which I’m sure City and Demichelis will now concede is definitely in the area.
