Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli was at his best in defeat to Chelsea on Monday night - though it had little to do with football!

Balotelli pinched a pair of gloves belonging to team-mate Sergio 'Kun' Aguero during Manchester City's game at Chelsea.

Balotelli was caught red-handed by the TV cameras, even if Kun was oblivious to the crime unfolding before him.

Mad Mario jinked round James Milner before swooping like a magpie to grab his prize.

He even bit out the label from inside one of the gloves!
