Right after the game, Thomas Tuchel speaking to the press shared his belief about the penalty implying it wasn’t supposed to have been awarded.
“I don’t think it was supposed to be a penalty, but if they score a penalty it is over before it even starts,” Tuchel said as he applauded his side’s spirit to have fought through their slip to taking the lead.
Meanwhile, on the other hand, Pep Guardiola believes the penalty was indeed a right decision by Taylor.
“It’s a penalty, no doubts” Pep told Skysports after the game.
