Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on Premier League rivals Tottenham in the wake of their 2-2 draw at The Etihad on Sunday.
The former Barcelona manager watched on as his side were denied what could have been a match-winning penalty when Kyle Walker blatantly pushed Raheem Sterling at 2-1, seconds before the north Londoners got their equaliser.
Speaking after the draw, Guardiola hailed Mauricio Pochettino’s side as the best in the league with the ball, emphasising how much he has enjoyed watching his old La Liga adversary’s side play this term.
The draw means that Spurs’ north London rivals Arsenal jump to second behind runaway leaders Chelsea, a point ahead of Pochettino’s side and four clear of the Sky Blues.
Despite only picking up the one point at home, Guardiola can take heart from a magnificent performance and will look to take maximum points from their next three league games, with a run of West Ham, Swansea and Bournemouth.
