Mauricio Pochettino: The first penalty for me was ridiculous


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino says there are a lot of positives to take despite another heavy defeat against Manchester City.

In a game which saw referee Jonathan Moss award four penalties, the Citizens dominated possession and took full advantage of a brilliant performance from striker Sergio Aguero.

But Pochettino believes his side could have snatched a draw had it not been for the referee's decision to send off centre-back Fazio in the 66th minute of the game.

"I think the first penalty after we scored made it difficult for us," Pochettino said.

"We played 70 minutes when we were always in the game.

"Manchester City have very good players. The result was bad but there are a lot of positives to take.

"The first penalty for me was ridiculous but we need to accept the decision.

"We need to review the game - my feeling was it is not a red card. A lot of things happened. It's difficult to analyse.

"We always believed it was possible to get a point."
