Pep Guardiola’s men put three straight defeats behind them in all competitions to become only the third team this season to beat Spurs at Wembley, ending Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s 14-game unbeaten league run.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Tottenham’s Alli was full of praise for City and cited their great movement all over the pitch as one of the key reasons why they have been head and shoulders above the rest.

“They're an unbelievable side, they've got great talent and they've won a lot of games. You can learn a lot, we have to keep working hard,” the 22-year-old explained.

"Everyone is going to want to keep improving, it's been a very tough year this year, a lot of teams have improved and the Premier League is never easy. We have to keep fighting.

"They move the ball really quickly, great movement all over the pitch."

Tottenham may have fallen 20 points behind City as a result of their defeat on Saturday, but they remain on course for their second highest points total since the Premier League reform.

Spurs have established themselves as one of the big six, and right now they can be proud to say they are currently the best team in the capital as they comfortably lead both Chelsea and Arsenal in the table.

With a young squad boasting plenty of potential, Pochettino’s men will only get better while it is unlikely City will enjoy such a dominant season again as they remain on target for a record points haul.

The Citizens are also on course to break Chelsea’s record of 103 goals scored in a single campaign, and two more victories on their travels will also see them record the most away wins in a 38-game season.
