Mauricio Pochettino expressed his delight after his Lilywhites ended City's 100 per cent winning record under Pep Guardiola in the Premier League on Sunday.
Pochettino labelled Tottenham's all round display against Manchester City as nearly perfect after an own goal from Aleksandar Kolarov and a Dele Alli close range strike saw the north London club seal three points at White Hart Lane.
It could have been three nil but Erik Lamela couldn't seal his chance from the penalty spot.
However, Pochettino was pleased with his teams performance and work ethic against Man City.

"It was a real exciting game. Both teams played in an exciting way. We share a similar philosophy. I enjoyed it a lot, the fans enjoyed it a lot, the neutral people enjoyed it too, both teams' mentality was to go forward, play football, and try to win the game.
