Guardiola bows to a superior Tottenham side

Guardiola bows to a superior Tottenham side

Producing a clinic in high-octane pressing, Tottenham hounded City into submission in a 2-0 victory at White Hart Lane that consigned Pep Guardiola to his first loss in 12 games.

City's much-lauded attack failed to score for the first time this season and its defense looked suspect, like it did in the 3-3 draw at Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday.

It could have been worse for City: Erik Lamela had a second-half penalty saved for Spurs in the second half.

"The fact Tottenham are picking up points even when they are not playing well is an ominous sign for their rivals, as is the way they improved after making a much slower start last season, when they eventually finished third". Past year it might have affected Spurs, but this season the likes of Heung-Min Song and Erik Lamela have stepped up to the plate and come good for the team.

Spurs started the second half as they finished the first with Victor Wanyama denied by Bravo, and wete handed a golden opportunity to add to thrir lead when Danny Rose was felled inside the area by Raheem Sterling and referee Andre Mariner pointed to the spot.

"They were the better team, that can sometimes happen".

The Premier League's two remaining unbeaten sides meet in north London, with City four points ahead at the summit by virtue of their 100 per cent record from six matches. We knew how aggressive they are, especially at home.

Auston Matthews crowd favourite in North America World Cup win
The 20-year-old Ekblad was smacked into the glass by Finland's Leo Komarov during Sunday's contest. Once North America got the puck back, it continued to bombard Bobrovsky with shots.

"They were better than us today and we have to say congratulations to Tottenham", said Guardiola.

"Same trainer, new players".

"The first goal is quite similar to the one we conceded in Glasgow, it is always hard to recover".

"We are a team who always want to have control and be in front, City want the same as us. Football is a game of mistakes".

Guardiola is all too aware of the threat posed by the Argentinian, who masterminded a stunning win for Espanyol over his then-unbeaten Barcelona side at the Nou Camp in 2009. "You look at their budget, the salaries they pay and compare it with Tottenham, and it is very clear", Pochettino said. "To play a great team like Manchester City, you need to do a fantastic job", he said.

"I don't think he's one of the best managers in England - he's one of the best football managers in the world", Guardiola told reporters at City's training centre in Manchester. "It was a battle on the pitch, and I am very pleased we won and showed our philosophy".

I enjoyed it a lot from the touchline and the fans enjoy it a lot. Both teams play in an exciting way. In our build-up we had problems creating, and we missed a lot of balls in the positions where they are so, so risky.
