‘Aguero was the difference,’ admits Pochettino as Tottenham suffer narrow defeat.

Frustrated Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes his side deserved more as Manchester City continued their decent run against Spurs with a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane.

The hosts were the more dominant side at times and registered more shots than the Blues, but another goal for Premier League top scorer Sergio Aguero, taking his tally for the season up to 22, was enough as City remain on course for a second place finish behind champions Chelsea.

Tottenham have beaten Man City just once in the league in five years, losing eight out of nine matches, including a 4-1 defeat earlier in the season which saw Aguero score all four of the Blues’ goals.

And while Pochettino was proud of Spurs’ efforts, he conceded his countryman was again the difference for Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

The Argentine boss said: "I feel proud of our players.

"We deserved more, much more. The difference was Sergio Aguero.

"We were a little bit unlucky because we created more chances than Manchester City, so I'm disappointed for the result but happy for the performance.

"We managed the tempo of the game but you need to score and we didn't score."
