EPL: Why Man City lost 3-2 to Tottenham – Pep Guardiola

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has revealed why his side fell 3-2 in the hands Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday.

January signing, Dejan Kulusevski put the visitors in front and Kane scored twice after Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez had both equalised for City.

Pep Guardiola saw his side dominate possession, earning 72 per cent of ball and created far more chances, but yet fell to Antonio Conte’s men.

The defeat means that Manchester City are now only six points above their closest title challengers, Liverpool who defeated Norwich City 3-1 on Saturday.

“Tottenham have a lot of quality, they give the ball to Harry Kane. They are really good up front,” the City boss told Sky Sports.

“In the first half they have the goal and no more. In the second half, they have one attack with Harry Kane at the start and they score.

“We try to score but we conceded the goal in extra-time. It’s difficult when they defend so deep. We had the chances to arrive and score. Unfortunately, we cannot score.

“They are clinical. They have Kane and Son and Kulusevski. Their crosses we could not defend,” he said.
