Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino felt his side were on the wrong end of a few decisions from referee Jon Moss – he labelled the first penalty “ridiculous” – but took positives from the fact his team were in contention until the latter stages.
“For me, it was ridiculous, but we have to accept the decision,” he said to the press of the 20th-minute spot-kick award, which came after Frank Lampard went down under the challenge of Erik Lamela.
On Fazio’s red card, for pulling back countryman Aguero midway through the second half, he added: “My feeling was that it’s not a red card. A lot of things happened today in the game. It’s difficult to analyse.
“We have to take some positives. We were always in the match. We were always believing it was possible to get a point, but after the penalty (making it 3-1) and the red card it was difficult.”
