Pep Guardiola suffered a bitter defeat to his long-time rival Jose Mourinho with Manchester City. The Spanish coach’s team lost 0-2 (0-0) to Tottenham Hotspur despite their best chances and had Liverpool’s leaders lower.
City’s gap to the Reds is now 22 points – never before has the lead of a top-flight english Premier League player been greater. It was also the first time mancity had not scored in two consecutive games under Guardiola.
In an intense match, the national player Ilkay Gondogan awarded a penalty on foul (40th) – the referee had awarded the penalty just less than two minutes after the foul after a hint of the video assistant. Newcomer Steven Bergwijn (63rd) for Tottenham and Heung-Min Son (71st) ensured the prestige success. Earlier, City defender Oleksandr Sinchenko (60th) had seen the yellow-red card.
Arsenal draw against Burnley
Arsenal remain stuck in grey mediocrity. The Gunners, led by former international Mesut Zil, did not go beyond the 0-0 draw at Burnley and lost sight of the European places for the fourth draw in a row. Since moving to Mikel Arteta as coach, the Londoners have won just one game in seven games.
Arsenal were too harmless on the offensive, with the few chances of Izil and Co were careless. In the second round Burnley became stronger and won the counter against the goalless guests. Shkodran Mustafi and Bernd Leno played through, Zil was replaced in the 63rd minute after a mixed performance.
