Pep Guardiola takes aim at Arsene Wenger as he sticks up for Raheem Sterling after Man City's win over Huddersfield



Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola aimed a dig at Arsene Wenger following the Citizens' 2-1 win over Huddersfield. Guardiola appeared to be referring to the Arsenal manager's comments after City's 3-1 win over the Gunners earlier in the season.

Raheem Sterling was upended in the box by Nacho Monreal in the second half of that particular game when the scores were still level, winning a penalty. Sergio Aguero converted the subsequent spot-kick, ensuring City took all three points from the contest, much to the frustration of Wenger.

After the game the Gunners boss accused Sterling of going down too easily, saying he "dives well". His comments were criticised after replays showed the 22-year-old was definitely fouled by the Spaniard. Following Manchester City's 2-1 win over Huddersfield on Sunday, in which Sterling won another crucial penalty, Guardiola said: "Two clear penalties. Maybe Arsene will say that is a penalty." 

"The penalty is more than clear. I'm impressed. He's young and he can improve. If he wants to learn then we'll be there to help him."
