Tottenham Hotspur 1-5 Manchester City
Coach Pellegrini reacts after a statement victory against another London club. The Citizens bnow lead the Premier League with one point ahead of Arsenal and two ahead of Chelsea..
“I think it’s too soon to be the favourites – there’s a lot of matches to play”. “If we continue to play the way we are, we will have chances to win but it’s early.
“We played some fantastic football in the first-half – we scored just one goal but we had three or four more clear chances to score.
“I don’t think we deserved just one goal from the first half – of course playing with one player less is more difficult for Spurs but I don’t the game changed in that moment. We were the team that had all of the chances, all of the possession and scored five goals. We also missed many clear chances.”
“It’s bad news to lose Sergio but we’ll have to see, I don’t know how bad it is. There’s good news though – Jovetic stepped up and scored today and he looked like the player we thought he was when we got him with this performance.
