Pep Guardiola did not support the good news announced this week at his club. 48 hours after the formalization of his contract extension (until June 30, 2023), the Manchester City manager experienced the defeat in London (2-0) in front of his “best enemy”, José Mourinho.
The Portuguese coach and his Tottenham players gave a great lesson in realism and simplicity. Heung-Min Son, served from the center circle by Tanguy Ndombele, controlled the ball in the middle of the race before beating Ederson (1-0) in the 5th minute.
The break signed by the former Parisian Lo Celso is the conclusion of a cons admirably led with Harry Kane, who came to seek the leather in the midfield, in the role of the decisive passer (2-0, 65th).
Hugo Lloris worked at the end of the game, in front of a header from Gabriel Jesus (90th), to avoid Spurs additional time at risk. In the standings, Tottenham takes the lead while the Cityzens are provisionally 10th, 8 points behind Spurs.
