Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to comment on their side's performance in their heavy defeat to Manchester City on Saturday - and unsurprisingly, there was a huge amount of criticism for a number of Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Spurs were the latest side tasked with trying to end Manchester City's incredible run of form that had seen Pep Guardiola's men go unbeaten in domestic competition all season and open up an 11 point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Unfortunately, some lacklustre defending from the visitors allowed City to break the deadlock inside the first 14 minutes. And while it would not be until the 70th minute that the home side would double their lead, Tottenham rarely threatened to get back into the game.

The second-half saw City score three times before Christian Eriksen struck Tottenham's only goal in stoppage-time - and in all honestly, it should have been a lot more comfortable for the Cityzens.

Here is the best of the reaction...
