City's Season In Bigger Jeopardy After Spurs Defeat
Source Good day football fans, it's a new week and we're still fired up for greater future feats. As football enthusiast, the games are always there to digress our minds from the worries of this Life, keep it fun and juicy. The past 48 hours have seen lots of interesting games across Europe's top five leagues, but I seem more attracted to talk about what transpired between Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur and Pep Guardiola's Manchester City. The outcome of that game is another reflection that the odds set by the bookies rarely defines the results of matches. It wasn't one of those games anyone will see City go without netting at least a goal or perhaps Tottenham securing scoring two goals against an offensive City side without conceding a goal, especially playing without their figure man Harry Kane. The game which ended 2-0 in Favour of Tottenham is another pointer that Jose has refused to allow the departure of Eriksen to affect the team. Source The victory is the biggest for Mourinho since taking over the wheels of from Pochettino. The Special One would have sent a message to the scenics who think his days as a tactician are gone. It was Spurs 10th win of the season after 25 league games, leaving them on the 5th position with just four points behind Lampard's fourth place Chelsea. Tottenham seems fired up for a Champions league spot and with the pace they're going, it's hard to say they won't topple Chelsea anytime soon. For Manchester City, it's been a rough ride for them in their quest to lift the Premier league for the third consecutive time, as that dream has been overtaken by a more resolute Liverpool drive to kiss the trophy that have escaped them for over the decades or thereabout. The 2-0 defeat on Sunday to Spurs condemned the Citizens to their sixth league defeat this season, leaving them 22 whooping points behind Liverpool. Yeah, no doubt Pep knows the possibility of lifting the league this season was no more feasible, but the Spaniard will be worried about the effect of these not impressive performance of his team ahead of their Champions league outing. Apart from losing three points to Spurs, the defeat sends a message to Real Madrid who are lock horns with City in the Champions League round of 16. Considering the pedigree of Madrid and their form, the last signal Guardiola's side would want to send is the notion that they're coming into that two legged encounter unready. City's attack have been far from expectations in their last few games, missing lots of chances that would have been able to bury the games in their Favour. Source Against Spurs, City dominated the entire first half but their inability to convert their chances(including a penalty) saw them pay dearly for it, thanks to goals from Steven Bergwijn and Son. Despite all these disappointing results, the City boss have refused to criticise his squad, an act which seem to me a very matured approach. "We played well but lost the game, he said. It happened again. They had two shots and scored two goals. I don't have too many things to say about the performance. We have to accept it and analyse it. It is not easy. We did really well, honestly. With this performance, how should I be critical? This performance would be an incredible mistake to say how bad they are. We created chances and conceded few. A few times this season it has happened. The sending off was a key point. We said at half-time be careful, yellow cards are a fast and quick action," Pep said after the match on Sunday. With Raheem Sterling not looking okay, there is a hovering fear that City's Champions league dream is already in Jeopardy, or do you think the Citizens can still ruffle few feathers in Europe this season? Do well to drop your thoughts in the comment session.
