Last night’s Premier League encounter between Manchester City and Tottenham had an exciting twist as the Pep Guardiola-led club fought back from 2-0 down to overcome Antonio Conte’s men.
Purs almost reclaimed the lead when Rico Lewis diverted Ivan Perisic’s shot against the woodwork but Mahrez finished off City’s comeback by winning a challenge and beating Lloris at his near post.

Mahrez capped off an outstanding individual performance by outpacing Tottenham and French veteran Hugo Lloris to score City’s fourth goal in stoppage time.
However, for Guardiola, it was proof that his team could have lost its edge after so much success.
After the game, he said to the media;
I’m incredibly happy with the result, I’ll sleep like a baby tonight, but it’s not about that.
“In 14 years, I won 11 league titles, that’s a lot so it means every day I see things you cannot see because you’re not there. I want a reaction for all the club, the whole organization and not just the players, the staff and everyone. We’re a happy flowers team … I don’t want to be a happy flower. I want to beat Arsenal. But if we play in that way Arsenal will destroy us. Arsenal will beat us. I want to see my team.
“We are far away from the team we had in previous seasons. Do you think this comeback will happen every time? It won’t.
“Do you think we are going to chase the gap to Arsenal the way we are playing? No way.”
