Manchester City vs Tottenham | Clash of two ideologies

Manchester City vs Tottenham | Clash of two ideologies

An outstanding game of football, with two teams of technically gifted players competing at a relentless tempo was decided by a video review which spotted a handball which would never have been given under the previous laws on handling.

Patient play from City culminated in the restoration of their lead ten minutes to the break as Aguero tucked past Lloris from De Bruyne's slick move.

City had won all of their last 15 Premier League matches before this weekend after thrashing West Ham 5-0 on the opening weekend.

In a game that promises goals it's hard to oppose City given their superiority, not to mention the fact that Pep's champs have triumphed in their last four Premier League tussles with Tottenham.

"We will see what happens, we change every season in our minds and team", Pochettino said.

Guardiola stopped the 31-year-old while he on his way to sit down, putting his hand on the player's chest to stop him walking away.

Aguero had earlier put City 2-1 up against Tottenham after Raheem Sterling's opener had been cancelled out by Erik Lamela.

Mauricio Pochettino's side started the season last weekend with a come-from-behind win over Aston Villa at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. "We are going to live the season in this situation, it is what it is and we have to accept it and it will make us stronger".

Premier League fantasy: Sign up now! Man City dominated the game and Spurs had two shots on target and scored with both of them.

Champions Manchester City and Tottenham have broken their transfer-records this summer as they continue to strengthen, though Neville says he is unconcerned by the improvement of United's rivals and is confident the club will challenge again.

"I think they are happy when they are scoring goals, all the people who play in the front line". The competition is most important.
