Every Spurs fan knows that Dele’s collection of nutmegs is enormous.

The cheeky Tottenham star tried to add another one when the Lilywhites clashed against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League encounter which came just days after their electrifying Champions League tie.

The midfielder did not need a lot of time to do it either. Within the first 30 seconds of the game, Dele had a chance to kick the ball between the Spanish manager’s legs after tackling former team-mate Kyle Walker.

After the tackle, the ball ricocheted towards Guardiola in the Etihad technical area.

With his natural ability to sense a nutmeg opportunity Dele chased the ball and tried to nudge it before the City boss got to it.

Unfortunately for the England international, Guardiola managed to close his legs in time and looked absolutely furious at the 23-year-old.

As players ran back to the pitch, the former Barcelona manager mocked Dele’s attempt by spreading his legs much wider twice, giving him a bigger target to aim at.


The Citizens are back at the top of the table after beating the Lilywhites 1-0. Tottenham will have to wait until Sunday evening to see if they remain in the top four.
