Premier League: 3 Things We Learned From Manchester City's 2-2 Draw With Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester City hosted Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium in the second game of their Premier League season and dropped their first points. The defending champions only managed a draw in their first top six game of the season and have fallen behind Liverpool in their quest to retain the league title.


Here are three things we learnt from Manchester City's 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

3. VAR ruins City again

Last season, VAR denied Manchester City a win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League. This season, it was in the Premier League that they suffered the same fate. City thought they had scored a winner late in the game, but VAR came into play and it was chalked off because of an inadvertent handball. 

2. First draw after a whole season

This was Spurs first draw an entire season, having gone the last campaign without sharing points with any team. Spurs also registered their first away draw in 16 months as well, but manager Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping they can improve their performances if they are to challenge for the league title this season. 

1. City's defence looks shaky

Manchester City's defence looks a bit shaky at the moment, with both Nicolas Otamendi ad Oleksandr Zinchenko out of position for both goals that Spurs scored in the game. In fact, Spurs only had two shots on goal and they scored in both of them, which will be a cause for concern for manager Pep Guardiola.
