EPL: Man City’s title defence suffers setback as champions draw 3-3 with Tottenham

Manchester City drew 3-3 with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday.

The result meant the champions have drawn their last three fixtures.

Speaking after the match at the Etihad, Pep Guardiola admitted mistakes exist in football.

On conceding more goals in the last few games, Guardiola said: “In the Chelsea game yes it was a concern but Liverpool and Spurs no. The problem is when the opponent creates a lot of chances, which today [Spurs] and Liverpool did not. But again at the moment, the transition after the corner, and again for another we make a mistake and concede.

“Football is about mistakes sometimes, but still we are there. After many years, we still have the feeling that we want it [the title].”

Up next for City is Aston Villa at Villa Park.

Unai Emery’s men hardly drop points at home, and Guardiola will have Rodri and Jack Grealish.

It remains to be seen if City keep up with Liverpool and Arsenal as the December fixtures begin to come thick and fast.
