Was Manuel Pellegrini watching the same game as the rest of us last night?  It appears not, the Manchester City boss has claimed that Danny Rose deserved to be sent off and it was a clear penalty.

Pellegrini was speaking at the post-match press conference and he was right in saying that City were the better side, but it’s absolutely laughable that he thinks it was a penalty.

Maybe Newcastle boss Alan Pardew was right in what he called him on the touchline at a recent match, an old ****.

Manuel Pellegrini told the press conference: “I don’t think (the red card) was the big decision because it think that before the red card we missed at least five clear chances to score on the first half. If we review the first 45 minutes I don’t remember just one chance from Tottenham. Our team was the best team from the beginning. If you ask me..i am not the referee so for me it was a clear penalty and a clear red card because it was the last man.”
