Starting the season with six wins in their first six games, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City went into their weekend clash with Tottenham Hotspur as slight favourites.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side also entered the game in fine form, with a few thinking they had a strong chance of causing an upset. They were right.
Spurs walked away with a 2-0 win thanks to a Kolarov own goal and a Dele Alli finish, meaning City’s lead at the top of the Premier League was cut to one point, but there’s no panic setting in according to Bacary Sagna, who was speaking to SFR Sport after the game despite not featuring in the game.
The right-back said: “I’m not worried. Honestly, I’m not worried. We have a conquering mentality here at the club, we want to learn, especially with the manager’s new methods, and that’s what we’re going to do.”
The veteran right-back was also full of praise for Tottenham, saying they were ‘better than us today’, hinting that they maybe wanted it that little bit more.
Despite not playing in the loss, the defender has made four appearances in the league for Manchester City this season, picking up one assist in the 3-1 win over Swansea.
