Spurs end Guardiola's perfect EPL start by beating Man City

The damage could have been worse, for in the 65th minute City conceded a penalty when Alli was tripped by Fernandinho, but Claudio Bravo beat away Lamela's penalty. The chance looked to have gone when Alli's pass was intercepted, but the ball fell to Son, who played an inch flawless pass to allow the Englishman to finish first time past Bravo. "Hopefully we can enjoy this weekend because the players are unbelievable".

"It was a great, great victory for us against this opposition".

"I feel very happy and very pleased, the performance was almost flawless", Pochettino said.

"It's massive going into the worldwide break - no one wants to go into that on the back of a loss, it's important we keep going". City had a couple of chances after the penalty miss that, if scored, could have led to a tense finish for the home side. That is the big problem we have.

"The collective performance was strong". After gaining his coaching badges just two months earlier with Espanyol's women's team, Pochettino took over the men's side in 2009 with the Spanish club already two managers down in that particular season and facing a relegation battle.

"I think it was a really exciting game, both teams played in an exciting way and we share a similar philosophy".

City's much-lauded attack failed to score for the first time this season and its defense looked suspect, like it did in the 3-3 draw at Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday. Not (just) right now - since past year.

While admitting he may have some regrets following his first loss at the City helm, Guardiola said the injured De Bruyne would have made little difference to the pattern of a game his side always looked second best in.

Fowler-Mickelson vs. McIlroy-Pieters is tight
Mickelson stuffed a wedge to 5 feet on the 16th to square the match, and then Sullivan hit his tee shot in the water on the 17th. Halfway through the sessions, the Americans were up in one match, trailed two others and were tied in the fourth one.

"If I was a fan or a young person wanting to become a coach, I would see Tottenham and say "I really want to play that way".

"He's not 100 per cent at the level that we want him", Pochettino told a press conference, when asked if N'Koudou is fit enough to start matches.

"[Losing] It is part of the game, part of our job". Now we won six games in a row and people say we are going to win four titles in the first season.

"Sometimes it happens - we prepared as well as possible".

"I don't like to talk about the past - football is present and future", Pochettino said. "It is October. You can not imagine my team is already done".

"I am new here". Guardiola has medium-term plans to change his full-backs - Pablo Zabaleta and Aleksandar Kolarov - and bring in another central midfielder to upgrade Fernando, but he shelved them in the past transfer window because other areas were in more pressing need of improvement.

"At the end of the season you can win and still realise that you are not ideal".
