SNAPPED! Guardiola speaks with Man City ace Aguero after spotkick spat

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola spoke to Sergio Aguero on the pitch after their rout of West Ham.

Guardiola singled out Sergio Aguero for an on-field talk in the wake of the champions' impressive 5-0 victory at West Ham.

The striker and Raheem Sterling had appeared to exchange words before Aguero's late spot-kick, with Sterling clearly keen to take the penalty, which if scored would have sealed him a hat-trick.

Even though City were 3-0 up and the game was all but won, Aguero stood firm and refused to hand over the ball to Sterling, who was seen on television with a wry smile on his face.

Guardiola didn't appear angry with Aguero, but the conversation between the two continued as both headed towards the tunnel.
