The drama - and the bitter feeling of celebrating victory only to end up seeing it taken away - was all too familiar for City who had exited the Champions League in April to Spurs when they had a late would-be victor from Raheem Sterling ruled out by VAR. Guardiola often preferred to use Jesus in attack during his first season with City before Agüero's increased work rate and continued weight of goals convinced his manager he should be first choice. I don't know, honestly. However, Guardiola has not forgotten that Spurs' Fernando Llorente was awarded a goal against City despite it hitting his arm in the Champions League last season.
He is going to be a key player on Saturday evening when Spurs come up against Manchester City and he's going to have a big role in bringing his teammates into play.
The England captain is 8/1 (Unibet) to score the first goal of this encounter and an enticing 13/5 (Unibet) with the same firm to strike anytime. We played good, but we could not win. "I have been a little bit critical of VAR in the past but people don't want to hear managers moaning all the time", he said.
"It's between the players and owners, but I see problems here for Tottenham".
"I wouldn't judge him if he scored 30 goals or 35 or 20".
Philippe Coutinho set for a move to Bayern Munich
The 23-year-old is back in Berlin for a second straight season-loan with Liverpool's midfield now too packed for him to have regular first-team football.
"There is a spark in my brain that questions where Mauricio Pochettino thinks he is?"
Wigan only narrowly survived relegation last season and although they beat Cardiff on the opening day, they have since gone on to lose 3-0 at Preston, and 1-0 at home to Stoke in the cup.
"I'm happy with the last week with how he's doing (and) his performance in training".
Meanwhile, Man City nearly always score and their free-flowing style of play will leave them susceptible to cutthroat counter-attacks at the other end - so all things considered backing both teams to find the back of the net could be worth a wager. "For now we just need to enjoy the moment", he said.
