Tottenham Hotspur secured a 2-2 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad and on the face of it is a great result.
However, the scoreline does not tell the story of the match, and in fact, it probably reveals the gap between the two.
No is the answer.
Two of these ended up as goals – now you could say it was clinical finishing and that they executed Mauricio Pochettino’s game plan, but they were comfortably outplayed for the entire match.
Spurs had Hugo Lloris in sublime form, and he is the reason that they ended up with a point. Christian Eriksen was hopeless, especially tracking Kevin de Brunye – who got away from him twice to provide two assists.
VAR then had a look and Spurs survived. It is early in the season and Tottenham were missing one of their new signings and also Heung Min Son but Pochettino must be worried that they were dominated for the whole game.
