It seems an age ago now but Tottenham Hotspur have already played and picked up a point away to the two-time reigning Premier League champions this season.

Spurs had little time to settle into their rhythm for the new season, with Man City away coming as only their second fixture of the 2019/20 campaign.

The Lilywhites had to come back from behind twice in the match to earn a 2-2 draw, with Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura getting their names on the scoresheet.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring after 20 minutes before Lamela levelled things just three minutes later. Sergio Aguero then gave City the lead again before half time, with Lucas Moura scoring straight after coming on in the second 45.

Man City were by far the better team across the 90 minutes, with Spurs hanging on for large parts of the encounter.

Danny Mills, a former City and England defender, has now claimed that he was disappointed with how negative Spurs were on the day.

After being asked if Tottenham had disappointed him so far, he said (Football Insider): “Maybe their attitude against Manchester City – they had to go there and be solid but in my opinion it was too negative.

“It’s bizarre because they came away with a point but they were very lucky to come away with a point, very, very fortunate.”
