Pep and Poch reveal their take on high-tempo clash

Pep Guardiola has been baffled with another VAR controversy.

“Last season it was offside, this time it was handball,” the Manchester City manager said. “If it was hands it was hands, the decision is made in London so there’s nothing I can do or say about it. We could do with a little more consistency, though. It that was hands by Aymeric Laporte why was Fernando Llorente not hands last season?”

“There was no penalty when the ball hit Andreas Christensen on the arm when Chelsea played Liverpool in midweek. I also thought we should have had a penalty when Érik Lamela fouled Rodrigo in the area. The VAR people must have been having a cup of coffee at that moment.”

Spurs boss Poch was happy to have stolen a point though.

“They were better than us, they dominated the game,” the Spurs manager said.

“I am happy to take a point from a game like that, it was a positive lesson for us because we had to show fight and character to twice come back from behind. The result reflects massive credit on the team, particularly as we are not a settled squad at the moment. We have to wait until the end of the transfer window in Europe before we know who is going and who is staying.”
