Pep Guardiola aimed a dig at Arsene Wenger after Manchester City beat Huddersfield on Sunday.
City were resilient and brilliant as they came from behind to sink Huddersfield late on at the John Smith’s Stadium.
A Nicolas Otamendi own goal on the stroke of half-time put the hosts in the lead, but City were level minutes after the restart through a Sergio Aguero penalty.
Raheem Sterling won the spot-kick having been felled moments earlier, and Guardiola felt that both incidents were worthy of penalties – aiming a dig at Wenger in the process.
“Two clear penalties. Maybe Arsene will say that is a penalty,” Guardiola said.
“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.
“He’s a winning player,” Guardiola continued in his praise of Sterling, who has now scored more goals this season than in any other throughout his career.
“Before he made good actions but now he is winning games.
“We’re in November and he’s already broken the record. He’s top but not only with goals.”
