It was another game marred by controversial refereeing decisions, but Manchester City’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham this weekend saw a much improved performance after the 4-0 defeat to Everton a week earlier.
City could and should have won the game, having taken a 2-0 lead, but referee Andre Marriner absurdly denied Raheem Sterling a penalty that even the offender, Kyle Walker, admitted was a push. And then more calamity at the back led to Spurs salvaging a point from what seemed like a certain win for City.
The standard of officiating the season is one of the talking points of our latest Weekend Review. For the first time, we have a five-man team on the City Watch Podcast in a mammoth 90 minute edition, with Ahsan Naeem joined by Sam Lee of Goal, Stephen Tudor of the Daisy Cutter, Howard Hockin and Paul Edwards.
The five discuss the match itself, improvements in Sané and Sterling, the relevance of John Stones’ omission from the team, and other subjects. Plus, we answer your questions from Twitter, including what the future holds for Kelechi Iheanacho. Be sure to use #askcw if you want your question answered on future episodes.
