Latest everton news: Guardiola finally admits Everton deserved penalty in controversial Man City win
Everton earned a penalty during Manchester City’s contentious win at Goodison Park on Saturday, according to Pep Guardiola.
Despite the ball touching Rodri’s arm within the penalty area, both referee Paul Tierney and VAR official Chris Kavanagh saw no violation, and Everton were denied a late penalty in their 1-0 defeat to City on Merseyside.
Following the VAR debate, the Toffees have filed an official protest with the Premier League about the ‘standard of officiating’ and have sought an apology.
Guardiola has now expressed his opinion on the event, believing it should have resulted in a penalty, and has been questioned if the decision may have an impact on the season’s end.
“Do you mean the entire season?” Is it possible that this episode will set the tone for the entire season? Guardiola remarked during his pre-match news conference ahead of City’s encounter against Peterborough on Tuesday, “For sure, I will review a lot of incidents.”
“Dele Alli’s pass to Richarlison appears to be offside; if it isn’t, it’s a penalty.”
Guardiola admits his side struggled in the opening exchanges of the win at Everton, but says City are ready for the challenges of the run-in as the club competes on multiple fronts. City were beaten at home by Tottenham last weekend, and Guardiola admits his side struggled in the opening exchanges of the win at Everton.
“It’s one game, then you lose the next, and your momentum is gone.” “We judge results based on momentum, not on this,” he explained.
“We struggled to be quick in the first half, but we were much better in the second half, conceding almost nothing.”
“Goodison Park is always difficult for City; the celebrations were not exceptional because we knew how difficult it would be, and it was a good example of what we will face in the Premier League’s final 11 games.” We will suffer and struggle, but we will be able to deal with it.”
