Mauricio Pochettino: You could feel it was not a normal game


Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino says Sunday's away win at Manchester City was a real test for his side.

Spurs produced a major upset at the City of Manchester Stadium after battling past the Citizens by 2-1.

And the 43-year-old was visible delighted as he gave "full credit" to his players.

"I think that it was a game that was very important," Pochettino told BBC Sport.

"You could feel it was not a normal game and a real test for us, for that we feel very pleased for the players. The mentality was good and a perfect performance against a team with a lot of quality players who are top class.

"Full credit to my players.

"From my point of view, I did not see the penalty incident. Sometimes in football it happens, it goes for you and against you in the season.

"The player that came on - Erik Lamela - showed real impact on the game. We wanted to put more energy and quality on the pitch."
