Watch: James McClean And Pablo Zabaleta Have It Out In The Tunnel Over Penalty Shout
By Gavan Casey Updated

The shrug from the Derry man says it all.

Manchester City's tunnel cam is one of football's hidden glories - an untapped resource which provides a behind-the-scenes look into Premier League games, where most other clubs make an effort to do the opposite.

Yesterday, part of the half-time tunnel footage (most of which is pretty boring, to be honest) did feature a good-natured disagreement between Argentinian international Pablo Zabaleta and Ireland's own James McClean, with the latter feeling aggrieved having been denied a penalty when he claimed his cross struck the City right-back on the arm.

Zabaleta seems to have a quick look for McClean as he emerges from the City tunnel and tells him to stop complaining, saying "I've seen it!" - referring of course to footage of the incident in question, much to the amusement of referee Mike Jones and his assistants.

Spare a thought, too, for Gael Clichy, who misses the exchange but seems very keen to know what's going on as he joins the rest of his side.
