Manchester City had to come from behind to secure a 1-1 draw against Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Raheem Sterling gave Chelsea the lead in the first-half before Rodri equalised for Manchester City late in the second-half.

Rodri was left fuming with the refereeing decisions as Manchester City were held by Chelsea on Saturday evening.

Rodri told BBC: “I don’t want to talk about the referee, but I don’t remember a game with so many VAR checks and none for us – come on man. You always see the face of referee and it’s now ‘move on, move on’.”
