It’s fair to say that Manchester City absolutely schooled Tottenham Hotspur this evening with a comfortable 4-1 win.
The performance of the Tottenham players did not go down well with the fans who took to social media to vent their frustration.
It could have easily been more than four, especially with City missing a penalty and Tottenham offering very little in the final third of the pitch. Christian Eriksen’s goal came too little too late.
If we are to be a genuine ‘top four’ club, we have to be better than this – and so does our record against the clubs at the top of the table.
Here’s a selection of what the Spurs fans have had to say about the game.
Eric Dier can fuck off. I would have driven up to Old Trafford myself.

I feel like the thing we’re missing most here is leadership and composure, particularly at the back. Alderweireld, basically. We’re just so panicky without him

Hope we finish bottom half. Had enough.

What kinda sub is rose for Davies on 88 mins??

Four … could have been eight. Consolation goal from Christian. City have been special, but Spurs did not really turn up. I'm going off line rather than read the know-alls putting their tenpennyworth in from their safe seats. Just accept that City are exceptional. #MCITOT

So lamentable tonight is many ways as we all know. Way off this season. Dele is not a midfielder he’s a goal scorer Imo.

Time to end the Trippier experiment now. And get Wanyama fit so I never have to see Dembele play for us ever again

Too many players cruising. Dele & Eriksen went missing again. Dembele was poor and him and winks were overrun in midfield. Dier & Trippier poor & Lloris looked shaky as well. Fucking woeful
