Man City 2 – Tottenham 2
Man City are now two points behind Liverpool and Arsenal after two rounds of the season.
On a dramatic night at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, Tottenham drew 2-2 against the reigning champs.
City dominated the game and continuously peppered shots at Hugo Lloris’s net.
However, a second-half header from Lucas Moura earned Tottenham a potentially important point.
Earlier in the game, goals from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero had twice given City the lead.
Erik Lamela scored for Spurs in the first half.
Pep Guardiola vs Sergio Aguero
After 66 minutes, Pep Guardiola hooked Sergio Aguero out of the game.
Gabriel Jesus came on as his replacement.
When Aguero trudged off the pitch, the Argentine had a heated exchange with his manager.
Was Guardiola upset with Aguero? What did the forward do wrong?
Argument against Spurs explained
After the match, Guardiola tried to play own the confrontation with his centre-forward:
It was a misunderstanding. Sergio was upset because he thought I blamed him for their second equaliser. Emotions were running high.
Aguero believed I was upset with him for the goal we conceded. The goal we conceded was a corner.
I wanted one on one movement. He thought I was upset with him.
I am sometimes exaggerated on the touchline but few times am I upset with the players.
I was a football player, I know what it is like to be in there.
Emotion is part of our game. We talked after and during. He’s a guy I love a lot.
