Manchester City were denied a late winner against Tottenham Hotspur yesterday evening for the second time in the last three encounters between the teams.
A VAR decision overruled what looked to have been a late winner over Mauricio Pochettino’s side when City were celebrating after Gabriel Jesus looked to have broken Spurs hearts, only to see his effort chalked off because the ball had made contact with Aymeric Laporte’s arm in the build-up.
After the match, Sergio Aguero took to Twitter to vent his frustration at the decision whilst also claiming that City deserved the victory more than Tottenham.
Raheem Sterling had nodded City ahead in the first half, only for Erik Lamela to strike back almost instantly against the run of play
Aguero found the back of the net just before half time following a beautiful assist from Kevin de Bruyne’s cross. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s tactical change worked wonders in the second half when Lucas Moura headed in seconds after coming on as a substitute.
In his Tweet, he also claimed that City vastly outperformed Spurs but had to settle for a point which the North London faithful certainly would have taken ahead of kick off.
Fuimos ampliamente superiores y merecimos más. Pero esto es fútbol y estas cosas pasan. A seguir así //We vastly outperformed our rival and deserved more. But this is football, and these are things that can happen. We'll keep up the work. C'mon, City! ?? pic.twitter.com/6FcwFotxJs
