Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola amazed by Kevin De Bruyne against Tottenham

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola amazed by Kevin De Bruyne against Tottenham

De Bruyne was at the heart of City's record-extending 16th straight league win, scoring their second with a blistering strike.

Christian Eriksen struck a late consolation but Tottenham Hotspur, which will drop to seventh if Liverpool avoids defeat at Bournemouth on Sunday, was thoroughly outclassed on the road, meaning it has now claimed just one point from its last five away trips away from Wembley Stadium.

There were 33 minutes of this game still to play when Pep Guardiola chose to withdraw Sergio Aguero and bring on Gabriel Jesus, who subsequently missed a penalty the Argentine would have taken.

When Guardiola did find a way to describe the Belgian's impact, it was to emphasise some of the midfielder's work that might not be picked up in television highlights packages. "I spoke to a Tottenham player towards the end of last season - a full worldwide, regular for his country, regular for his team - he told me what he was on wages wise and I was on more money at Newcastle in 2002".

Mnuchin added that Washington has to "get past this investigation". "Nobody has said that in any way this impacted the election". The recipient of the texts, who was also on Mueller's team, had left by the time the exchanges were discovered.

"They have really good young players", Guardiola said.

"All the time he's using his head, and overall, without the ball, he's able to make pressure 40 metres to the goalkeeper. When that happens, the people behind him see it and say if that guy runs like this, I have to run as well".

The 26-year-old has been sensational for City this season having been involved in 14 goals in his 15 Premier League appearances since the start of September. "We want to win each game, we're doing a good job", he said. "I hope they win the Cup as well and if we can play them in the Champions League final that would be good", Pique told The Telegraph. "It was a great performance".
