Tottenham were the better side in their Premier League clash against Manchester City, but the visitors left White Hart Lane with all three points thanks to a first-half Sergio Aguero goal.
Spurs had started well, pressing high and creating chances against a shambolic City defence. In typical fashion, the away side took the lead on 29 minutes when David Silva slipped in Sergio Aguero. The Argentine smashed the ball in at the near post, a goal that would prove to be the winner.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side were extremely unfortunate to lose the game, with Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela impressing the most. Here’s how Twitter reacted to Spurs’ battling defeat…
Decent effort today. Just lacking that guile and ruthlessness required when on top in games. Certainly not all broke though. #COYS

Deserved a point, can take a bit of pride from not conceding the usual 6, looking forward to the summer #COYS

Aguero the difference as City lift all three points that they just about deserve. Spurs not decisive enough in the last third #spursvcit

So, so harsh on Tottenham. Superb performance that would have earned all three points on any other day. Sickening #THFC

Really didn't deserve to lose that. Oh, well. Europa league in July, anyone?

Decent performance – as I've stated before, think Lamela looks most comfortable in midfield

We had our chances but couldn't put them away, back to back home defeats for Spurs.

We were worth at least a point today; let down by some slack finishing. But played well & Lamela/Chadli had their best matches in *ages*.

we are paying the price for having no decent competition for eriksen & kane, both looked out of it today and that's our main threat gone

Not a bad game at WHL. Rose v Milner a diverting contest; Milner exactly the kind of player THFC should have signed in the 'Magnificent 7'

Ironically although we lost one of our best performances in a long while.Not clinical enough in front of goal
