Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, praised Tottenham after defeat to Jose Mourinho’s men on Saturday.
Goals from Heung-Min Son and Giovani Lo Celso did the damage for the hosts and whilst Guardiola felt City had the edge in a number of areas, he was left ruing our performance in both penalty areas.
“The winners always get credit, there is no doubt about this,” said Guardiola.
“They are a physical team, well organised team, so it’s not easy when you concede after six minutes.
“They are top of the league so they are more of a contender than anyone else right now.
“There are a lot of teams in front of us and if not it will not be possible and we know it. I think we are not far, far away, but we struggle to score goals right now.
“Ten goals in nine games is not good enough.”
