Manchester City 1-0 Tottenham: Mauricio Pochettino believes his side ‘deserved a draw’ against Premier League leaders

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino believes his side ‘deserved a draw’ in their defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Pochettino’s men were unable to inflict Premier League heartache on the Citizens after knocking them out of the Champions League on Wednesday, with Pep Guardiola’s men winning 1-0 on Saturday.

However, Spurs worried their opponents on a few occasions with the likes of Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura going close.

And Pochettino spoke of his pride for his players despite being obviously disappointed with the result.

Speaking after the game, Pochettino said: “I think it was a good performance. I am so happy, so proud.

“Of course disappointed with the result but it was a good performance, an even game and I think we deserved a draw but in football sometimes you don’t get what you deserve.
