Richard Keys has slammed Pep Guardiola for his animated on-field exchange with Jack Grealish following Manchester City’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal.

Guardiola cut a frustrated figure on the sideline throughout Sunday’s encounter at the Etihad Stadium as his side were held to a goalless draw by a resolute Gunners’ defensive display.

The point leaves the defending champions in third and three points off league leaders Liverpool following their 2-1 win over Brighton earlier in the day.

At full-time, Guardiola was captured having a lengthy conversation with substitute Grealish who, like many City players, struggled to create chances against Arsenal’s sturdy back line.

However, the antics have caught the ire of former Sky Sports host Keys who accused the Spaniard of playing up to the camera.

‘Save it for the dressing room. It’s all for the cameras, it is so tiresome. Go down the tunnel, he shouldn’t even be on the pitch,’ Keys said on beIN SPORTS.

‘Now he’s got to go and tell everybody else what they did wrong.’

Guardiola, meanwhile, admitted after the match that Liverpool were now favourites to win the title after Klopp’s side established a two-point lead at the top of the table.

Asked if Liverpool are now clear favourites to win the league, Guardiola replied: ‘Yeah, the one who is first is favourite.

‘The second favourite is Arsenal and we are the third. It was in our hands, now it’s not. If you are top of the league – like we’ve been before – you are favourites.’
