Despite dominating the entire game, Manchester City were unable to beat Tottenham on Sunday, with Jose Mourinho’s team leaving Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a valuable 2-0 victory.

City threw away a number of chances in the game, including an Ilkay Gundogan penalty which was saved by Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the first half. Things didn’t go better from that point on; Oleksandr Zinchenko was sent off after receiving two yellow cards in a frantic game.

Steven Bergwijn and Son Heung-min sealed the game for Spurs despite Manchester City having the majority of possession and taking 18 shots at the Tottenham goal.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Guardiola locked his players in the dressing room for over forty minutes after the game. He finally emerged from the dressing room after forty-five minutes and reportedly could face a fine from the Premier League.

“How proud I am of them, but it’s not enough. I like to see my players playing that way”, he replied when asked about what he said to his players in the dressing room.

City are the current Premier League champions, but they have little to zero chances to retain that title this season. They are now 22 points behind runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool after suffering their 6th defeat of the campaign.
