Man City boss Guardiola brands ref: Master commander Anthony Taylor

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola sarcastically criticised fourth official Anthony Taylor this weekend.

The Citizens were held to a 3-3 draw by Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday at home.

Guardiola was furious at how the referee blew for a free kick for a foul on Erling Haaland, even though Jack Grealish was through on goal.

Asked if he got an explanation, Guardiola told beIN Sports: “No, the master commander Anthony Taylor knows everything in this business and didn't tell me anything."

“Next question, I will not do a Mikel Arteta comment," Guardiola added when asked about the incident.

“When you review image, referee whistle after saying play on and then after pass whistle. This is what I don't understand action.

“Good game is most important thing, pity as think Liverpool game and today incredible performance in all departments. Create a lot of chances, aggressive and feeling we want to be there.

“Pity but football like life and sometimes don't get what you deserve. Congratulations to Spurs and onto next."
