Guardiola ‘jokingly’ pushes West Antonio’s Michael Antonio to “give his defenders a tough day”

After a 2-2 draw between Manchester City and West Ham, Guardiola was seen giving Mikhail Antonio an “interesting push” – something he talked about in his post-match interview.

League leaders Manchester City are four points ahead of second-placed Liverpool on Sunday after a difficult period away.

Jarrod Bowen’s first-half brace clearly stunned City in the second quarter, as Jack Grealish’s goals and Vladimír Coufal’s [own goals] put the Citizens on their way to a Premier League title again.

It’s been a rough day at City offices. Players like Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals have caused some problems for backup midfielder Fernandinho and Manchester City’s back line.

Mikhail Antonio was also a threat, with Guardiola “jokingly” pushing the 32-year-old forward when talking to striker Jack Grealish after the full-time whistle.

“You must love Pep,” said one fan who watched the video below, while another said: “It’s not cheating.”

Guardiola was asked about the “push” in a post-match interview with Sky Sports reporter Jeff Shreeves.

“He goes to the gym every day, this guy, he’s too strong,” said the City boss, before praising Fernandinho and center-back Aymeric Laporte.

“It’s not easy dealing with Antonio,” Guardiola added. “They’re great.”

At West Ham’s post-match press conference, Guardiola sent a message to his Liverpool opponents Southampton after being asked if he had a message for the Saints.

“I’d say, beat Liverpool 4-0!” he laughed.

“The greatest privilege we have is being at home, it’s in our hands. We don’t need to see anything but ourselves. We have to give everything.

“I told the players, ‘Don’t be sad today because we played really well. Against this opponent, it’s fair to decide who wins the title on the final day because both teams are good right ‘. ”

Liverpool will face Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday night before challenging Wolves on the final day.

Meanwhile, City are hoping to secure the title against Aston Villa Gerrard at Etihad Stadium on Sunday. Will they do it?
