Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling said he has no intention of watching the game between Manchester United and Aston Villa after his side failed to beat Chelsea to secure the Premier League title.

Manchester City missed the opportunity to wrap up the 2020-21 Premier League title against Chelsea at the Etihad on Saturday as they fell to a 2-1 loss.

leveled after the hour mark.

Marcos Alonso

scored the winning goal two minutes into added time.

And now they will have to wait for

Manchester United

’s game against

Aston Villa

, but Sterling said he has no plan to watch the game.

"I don't think I'll personally want to watch that game,"

Sterling told Sky Sports

.

"I'll have some family time and look at the results and check up on the latest scoreline. To watch the game is a difficult one, so I'll try to chill."

"It's a difficult one to take, especially when we had chances to finish the game off and we didn't finish it off,"

Sterling added.

"We got punished, simple as that."

The 26-year-old has been left frustrated after a penalty appeal that was unsuccessful shortly before Alonso's scuffed strike.

"For me, I couldn't get a shot off because he's put his knee in the back of my hamstring,"

Sterling said

.

"I don't know how it's not a penalty, I don't know how it's not been reviewed properly. The ref said it's been reviewed but, at the end of the day, personally I knew it was a penalty.

"I thought the VAR was here to help, but it wasn't meant to be.
