How Tottenham defeated Man City — Mourinho reveals

Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho said his side beat Manchester City on strategy during their the Premier League clash.

Spurs won City 2-0 which means Spurs finish a day top of the Premier League table for the first time since August 2014,

Speaking on the success achieved, Mourinho told Sky Sports, “For me, I prefer the players to speak because they are the ones, they were fantastic, they gave everything. They follow a strategy and football sometimes, more than ever, strategy plays an important part. They were amazing.

“It was very important to respect [City] and not to forget the team they are. If we follow people speaking about them as being not as good as before, if we follow the fake table because they have one match in hand, we would probably be playing in a different way. City is a fantastic team that lost against a team that strategically was very good but City is still City.

“Of course, you have to score and we didn’t have many chances. You need a top goalkeeper to make crucial saves in crucial moments, but we knew they would have more of the ball but we would be very comfortable playing that way because we knew the way to do it.”
