#2 Touchline dispute and then embrace between player and manager

Guardiola called off Sergio Aguero in the 66th minute to bring on Gabriel Jesus. It was in a moment when the game was level and City were desperately trying to find a breakthrough, for which Aguero assumed his role on the pitch to be crucial.

But as we know, Pep Guardiola neither does favors nor holds prisoners, even if you are the highest goalscorer in the club's history. The decision saw the player openly argue with the manager on the touchline after both engaged in what looked like a hard and fast discussion, and it ended with a frustrated Aguero returning to the bench.

However, after Jesus, Aguero's substitute scored in injury time which seemed like a late winner, we saw all hate lost between the two as they embraced each other for quite a while. The VAR decision later left both in disbelief.

It was good fun, it was a moment for the cameras which will definetly incite the media to blow it out of proportions later.

#1 Lucas Moura scored 15 seconds after coming on

The man whose hattrick sent a dying Tottenham to the Champions League final last season was their saviour once again, as he scored 15 seconds after crossing the touchline. Pochettino has often used Moura as a super sub, and the brilliant Brazilian rose against the City defense as his towering header found the back of the net from a corner to get Spurs back on level terms.

Spurs were without their main man Son Heung-min, and City hardly gave them any chance to feed anything to Harry Kane who was isolated all game. Moura's magic proved vital just when City were starting to take the game completely away from them and earned them a very hard fought, and a very lucky draw.
