Craig Pawson must have left his red card at home.
The 38-year-old referee was very lenient while taking charge of Man City against Spurs at the Etihad.
Nicolas Otamendi, Harry Kane and Dele Alli could all have been sent off for separate incidents but all escaped with just a yellow.
City’s Argentine centre-back inadvertently kicked Kane in the face after 36 minutes.
Mauricio Pochettino exchanged some frank words with his compatriot following the incident.
Kane then turned from victim to assaulter with a nasty late challenge on England team-mate, Raheem Sterling.
The worst of the lot came from Alli when he skimmed over the top of the ball before clattering Kevin De Bruyne.
It was a potential leg-breaker…
Thankfully for Pep Guardiola and all the neutrals, De Bruyne wasn’t seriously injured.
About a minute after the foul, the Belgian playmaker broke down the left and slammed home City’s second.
It was another vintage performance from the leading candidate for Player of the Year.
The league leaders once again proved they are on a level of their own this season by hammering Spurs 4-0.
Ilkay Gundogan opened the scoring with a header with the visitors allowing the German international to drift into the box at a corner unmarked.
The ex-Borussia Dortmund midfielder deputised for the in-form David Silva who was missing due to personal reasons.
Sterling scored two tap-ins to take his tally to 11 Premier League goals for the season.
The England winger could have had a hat-trick as he missed a couple of other clearcut chances, one of which came when Gabriel Jesus’ penalty rebounded back off the post with the goal agape.
Imagine what the score would have been if Kane and Alli had been dismissed…
