Fortunately for Manchester City, the mistake didn’t cost them three points as they made an exceptional comeback in the second half.
Emerson Royal doubled Tottenham’s lead barely two minutes after Kulusevski’s goal, making the halftime score 2-0.
Pep Guardiola’s side, on the other hand, came out firing, with Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland restoring parity by the 53rd minute. Riyad Mahrez then scored a brace to cap the hosts’ comeback.
Manchester City’s victory keeps them within striking distance of league leaders Arsenal, who are five points ahead of the defending champions with a game in hand.
Pep Guardiola criticizes his team and fans following Manchester City’s victory over Tottenham.
While City made a remarkable comeback on the night, manager Pep Guardiola was not pleased with his players. He remarked that he anticipated a greater response in the first half against Tottenham losing 2-1 against rivals Manchester United on Saturday, January 14.
The Spaniard said (via ESPN):
“We concede four fouls and we don’t react. There was nothing from the stomach and the guts, we were lucky but if we don’t change sooner or later we’re going to drop points. The passion, fire, desire to win from minute one [was missing]. It’s the same as our fans, they are silent for 45 minutes.”
“They booed because we we’re losing but maybe it’s the same as our team we re so comfortable winning four Premier Leagues in five years. And after we score a goal they react, but that’s not the point.”
Manchester City will next host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Sunday, January 22.
