As Tottenham beat Manchester City with a 2-0 scoreline, the league match made the headlines because of Jose Mourinho's hilarious antics during the game. According to reports, Jose Mourinho was already frustrated as Man City's Raheem Sterling escaped a red card for a tackle on Dele Alli, which was not deemed as a red card offence by the Video Assistant referee(VAR). Later on, Sterling escaped another booking for what was thought to be an intentional dive, after which he fell to the ground following a clash with Lloris.

The match was marred by controversy surrounding the Video Assistant Referee (VAR). Though the first half ended 0-0, it did witness some drama. In the 36th minute of the game, Manchester City was awarded a penalty after Sergio Aguero was brought down in the penalty area by Serge Aurier.
After the VAR check, the referee confirmed a penalty and Ilkay Gundogan went ahead with the spot-kick. However, his penalty was saved brilliantly by Hugo Lloris, who marked his return from a long injury lay off.
