Following Manchester City’s win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 1-0, City manager Pep Guardiola appeared to ‘tap up’ Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen after the game.
City won the game through a Kevin De Bruyne effort midway through the second half to send them top on goal difference.
Christensen was amongst the few who had one of the better Chelsea performances on Saturday and Guardiola evidently saw that.
Following an impressive game, Guardiola had a short conversation with Christensen, but that wasn’t the last of it.
There was an outburst on social media. More was made of it than it probably should have been, but that was to be expected after a poor Chelsea performance, leaving fans rightfully disappointed.
Fuck off Guardiola, stop talking to Christensen…

However, some weren’t too phased, they saw it as compliment to one of the Chelsea players who had a fine game.
Guardiola whispers something in Christensen’s ear as he leave. Perhaps telling him he was Chelsea’s best man today? Wouldn’t be wrong.
