It's a big disappointment to now head into the global break mulling over a defeat, but Pep Guardiola will have learned a lot and the players will bounce back strongly in a fortnight.
Overall, it was a masterful display of offense and defense combining to stop the Citizens from advancing and delivering two knockout blows to keep them at bay.
"I think we're improving every week, every month. It was a very excited game, I enjoyed it a lot".

Spurs reached the League Cup final against Chelsea during Pochettino's first year at White Hart Lane before fighting with Leicester City for the Premier League title last season. It was a fantastic victory.
Whoever wins the 2016/17 title will need some of that luck, few injuries, and their best players in form.
Spurs next outing is a visit to the Hawthorns to play West Brom after the worldwide break, before a trip to Germany to play Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.
