Is Sterling offside as he scores Man City’s opener against Bournemouth

Raheem Sterling scored a simple tap in for Man City’s first goal in their 5 – 1 home win against Bournemouth. But was he off side?



As the picture shows, he certainly looks offside. As Wilfred Bony toes the ball, he looks a foot or so in front of the last Bournemouth defender Steve Cook. But was Cook the last defender and was Sterling offside?

Bit of a quiz question for all you football fans who know the rules?
