He said, “My first reaction is I feel sorry for referee Michael Oliver because he had a very good match but unfortunately he made an important mistake.
“The result was made with a big penalty not given [on Ander Herrera]. That would have been 2-2 with 20 minutes to go
“Michael was unlucky because it was a clear penalty.”
“Manchester City are a very good team and they are protected by the luck, and the gods of football are behind them.”
