Man City boss Pep Guardiola cut a frustrated figure after bemoaning the manner of defeat his side suffered against Jose Mourinhos Tottenham.

Spurs rounded out 2-0 victors to temporarily take their place at the top of the Premier League table.

Man Citycreated the bulk of the chances in the match, but their wastefulness cost them dearly as Tottenham capitalised on their limited efforts on goal.

Speaking to the BBCafter the contest,Guardiola said: It could be better, we played similar to how have all season.

We did not defend good for the first goal. They then defended so deep, they defended with six and it was not easy.

We had our chances, but we couldnt score and they made two or three chances on the counter attack and we lost the game.

We knew before the game that you cannot give them the first goal.

We had more chances and them but we lost. Mourinhos teams are like this, you make a mistake and they punish you on the counter attack.

It is not easy Harry Kane and Ndombele are on halfway, the space is so difficult, our possession play was good, but football is the boxes and that is where we were not good.
