Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has had a sly dig at Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger after watching his side beat Huddersfield 2-1 in dramatic circumstances on Sunday afternoon.
Goals from Sergio Aguero and a late one from Raheem Sterling sealed the three points, but they had to come from a goal down after Nicolas Otamendi’s own goal on the stroke of half time.
But when asked whether he thought the penalty, which led to Aguero’s equaliser should have been given, Guardiola couldn’t resist having a go at Wenger, who had accused Sterling of diving in City’s win over Arsenal a few weeks ago.
In fact, Guardiola thought there should have been another spotkick given.
“Two clear penalties. Maybe Arsene will say that is a penalty,” he said.

“The Premier League is so tough, now winter has come, we knew they were so aggressive, so strong, but we are so happy for the way we won,” Guardiola added, per the Evening Standard.
“We spoke at half-time about how to react, we had enough chances to score and the first time Huddersfield had a chance they scored. We spoke about not giving up, to keep going.
“It was a brilliant move to win the penalty. It is impossible to win every game easily, this league is so tough. The guys competed amazingly, which is why we won.”
