Pep Guardiola doesn’t appear from dressing room for 45 minutes but claims Man City ‘played well’ in defeat at Tottenham

PEP GUARDIOLA claims Manchester City played well in their 2-0 defeat at Spurs – despite not appearing from the away changing room for 45 MINUTES after the final whistle.

A debut goal from Steven Bergwijn set Tottenham on their way to victory, with Son Heung-Min bagging a second at their new stadium.

Man City missed a penalty in the first half and were reduced to ten men in the second when Oleksandr Zinchenko picked up another yellow for tactical fouling.

Despite dominating possession and having far more shots, City never really looked like getting the better of Jose Mourinho’s men.

However, Guardiola claims his team played well during the defeat.

That’s despite the Spaniard locking his players in the away changing room for 45 minutes after the final whistle before emerging to face the press.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Guardiola could even face a Premier League fine due to his tardiness.

But the tactician refused to criticise his players publicly, telling BBC Match of the Day: “I have no regrets about the performance.

“We lost a football match. Of course we had a lot of chances. At the end of the day you have to take it.

“In the second half we started well and created chances to score and didn’t do that.”

Speaking to Sky Sports, Guardiola added: “We played well but lost the game. It happened again. They had two shots and scored two goals.

“We have to accept and analyse it. It is not easy. We did really well, honestly.

“With this performance, how should I be critical? This performance would be an incredible mistake to say how bad they are. We created chances and conceded few.”
