Man City player claims they ‘deserved more’ and ‘vastly outperformed’ Spurs

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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. City did outperform spurs yesterday due to their tactic of persistent fouling when Spurs threatened to beat their high press. West Ham fan alluded to it last week and watching the game yesterday I could understand what was meant. As most of the fouls were in the Spurs half of the field only one player was booked. But its a tactic that allows Man City to get players into position for the free kick.

  2. Regardless of what Aguero says. The score remains Man City 2 THFC 2, all thanks to the dimwitted imbeciles who decided to bing in VAR in its current stupid form. Also, how did the ref miss the blatant penalty by Lamella in the first half? (And I’m a Spurs supporter of 60 years.)
