Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola attracted attention for his embarrassing moment during his side's pivotal match against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday, May 14.

The Spanish tactician and his Man City side stand on the verge of Premier League history, with his side poised to become the first to clinch four consecutive English top-flight titles.

Heading into the Spurs game, the Citizens trailed Arsenal by just one point.

As noted by Metro, the champions' victory against the Lilywhites saw them usurp the Gunners and put them in pole position to defend their trophy on the final day.

By beating the North London club, Guardiola's charges ended their hoodoo at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and their dreams of a fourth EPL title on the trot are all but set in stone.

Historically, City had struggled to score and even secure victories on the road against Spurs in any of their previous EPL visits.

However, Erling Haaland sought to change the narrative by opening the scoring with a clinical finish from a Kevin De Bruyne assist and wrapping up victory in stoppage time with a well-taken penalty, per NBC Sports.

Guardiola's 'embarrasing' moment during Spurs game

While Haaland's goals propelled the Sky Blues to the summit of the league log, Guardiola endured a somewhat embarrassing moment during the game.

The 53-year-old, often animated on the touchline, appeared composed while sitting on the bench, but a gesture towards his groin area caught viewers' attention.

The former Barcelona trainer seemed slightly uncomfortable and was compelled to adjust, a moment coincidentally captured by the cameras.

Guardiola's response to Son's miss goes viral

In a related report by Sports Brief, Pep Guardiola's response to Son Heung-min's rare moment of inefficiency could arguably be considered the most amusing of the season.

As the defending champions held a 1-0 lead, Son capitalised on Manuel Akanji's mistake in the 86th minute, finding himself one-on-one with Stefan Ortega in the Citizens' goal. However, the South Korean forward failed to convert.

Guardiola's reaction to Son's missed opportunity was unmistakable, showing clear disbelief.
