Referee Simon Hooper sparked controversy when he pulled the game back for a foul on Erling Haaland when Jack Grealish was through on goal in the 94th minute despite initially playing advantage.

Haaland fumed at the decision and after the game left the pitch in an X-rated blast.

These emotions were seemingly also felt by Guardiola.

However, the Spaniard managed to keep a better lid on his emotions before even taking a jokey swipe at former assistant Arteta.

Asked about Hooper’s call at the end of the game, he said: “Next question.”

He then pulled a smirk, before adding: “I will not do a Mikel Arteta [style] comment.”

In early November, Arsenal boss Arteta famously lost his rag after Anthony Gordon’s match-winning goal for Newcastle was allowed to stand amid a catalogue of controversial decisions.

In that post match rant Arteta had labelled the refereeing a “disgrace”.


He softened his view ahead of his side’s win at Wolves on Saturday – and he will find soon whether he will face any punishment for his damning comments.

On City’s Spurs case, Guardiola said: “Apparently it’s different when you review the image.

“The referee wants to whistle then wave play on and after the pass whistle so this is what I don’t understand.

“Anyway, it was an important game which is the most important thing and it’s a pity because I felt with the Liverpool game and today that we put in an incredible performance in all departments.

“It is a pity [to not win] but football is like life, sometimes you don’t get what you deserve.”

It is now three draws in a row for Guardiola’s outfit, with the run now leaving them three points adrift of Premier League leaders Arsenal.

Liverpool also sit a point above City.
