Footage Of Fourth Official's Reaction To Harry Kane's Late Winner Has Got People Talking

The reactions of Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and fourth official Craig Pawson after Harry Kane netted a dramatic late winner for Spurs against Manchester City has got fans talking.

It was an eventful Saturday afternoon at the Etihad as the home side dropped crucial points in the Premier League title race.

Dejan Kulusevski, who was outstanding throughout, opened the scoring in the fourth minute before City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan equalised just after the half hour mark with a cool finish.

Man of the Match Harry Kane then helped Spurs regain their lead and it looked like Antonio Conte's side were on their way to victory until Riyad Mahrez tucked away a spot-kick in the dying moments after a clear handball.

But in one of the most dramatic endings to a Premier League game ever, that man Kane headed home from a Kulusevski cross to give the Lilywhites a famous win against high-flying City.

You can see the England international's late heroics below.

Moments after Kane's eventual winner, cameras captured the polar-opposite reactions of Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte on the touchline.

An ectastic Conte ran towards his coaching staff like he'd just scored the winner in a World Cup final, while a devastated Guardiola hunched over and touched the turf in utter dismay.

But what about fourth official Craig Pawson? Well, fans on social media were quick to analyse his "unusual" reaction to Kane's late winner...

Conte, meanwhile, was full of praise for his players after their dramatic win against Premier League leaders City - and singled out new signing Kulusevski for his efforts.

“Today to speak about only one player is very difficult for me because every single player they made a fantastic performance,” said Conte.

“For sure, Kulusevski played an amazing game. He’s only 21 years old, but despite this, he has good experience, because when you play with Juventus you have to manage a lot of pressure in Italy.

“He’s a good signing for us. He’s strong physically, good technically."

That crucial result from the Etihad means rivals Liverpool are just six points behind the Citizens with a game in hand.
