Mauricio Pochettino will avoid any further punishment from the Football Association after his furious full-time reaction following Chelsea’s dramatic draw against Manchester City.

Pochettino was booked for venting his fury at fourth official Craig Pawson and then charging onto the pitch towards referee Anthony Taylor.

Pochettino was angry his side were denied the chance to launch one final attack to potentially win the game when Taylor blew his final whistle and had to be held back from confronting the official by members of his coaching staff.

Pochettino quickly apologised for his behaviour following the game and admitted he ‘crossed the limit.’

Though as the incident was dealt with at the time by Taylor with his caution for Pochettino there will be no additional action from the FA.

He was incensed at the game ending ‘prematurely’ – denying his side a goalscoring chance

Pochettino admitted after the game he ‘crossed the limit’ and that his behaviour was ‘not a good image’ of him, as Chelsea earned a point in an enthralling 4-4 draw with Manchester City

The booking was Pochettino’s second of the season after he was also punished at Burnley. One more will result in a one-game touchline ban.

Pochettino said about his post-match anger against City: ‘I need to apologise to Anthony [Taylor], and the referees and the fourth official, because in this moment I feel that maybe Raheem can go through and go to score the fifth and it is moment I turn when finished the game to Anthony and say “what the…”

‘I said “why stop in this moment?” and then when I turn and say, “I deserve to be booked”. Yes, I crossed the limit and I want to apologise. It’s not a good image for me and for football for this type of behaviour.’
