Guardiola: Spurs deserved the win


Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola admitted Spurs were the better team following his side’s 2-0 defeat at White Hart Lane.

The former Barcelona coach’s side were finally beaten after boasting six wins from six before their visit to London

An own-goal from Aleksandar Kolarov in the 9th minute followed by a well-worked move finished off by Deli Alli in the 36th minute was enough to maintain Spurs’ unbeaten start to the campaign

"It was a tough game, we knew that. Tottenham have been a very good team for the last three years, fighting. It was difficult, they were better so congratulations to Tottenham.” Guardiola told the BBC.

"We were little late in all aspects. We could not have so many chances; in many aspects they were better than us.

"They are sharper for the second ball; in England you have to control that. Football is 90 minutes, we had a good start but we didn't have the game. We had problems to control the game."

Despite losing, City still sit top of the pile in the Premier League while Spurs move up to 7th- a point off their title rivals.
