Guardiola then explained the reason for his delay in attending the post-match press conference.

"I never moved away from the players when we lost because I knew them (City players)," he said.

"We lost so we talked about how to move forward for the next fight. There are a few more months and we will try it."

"If I find a solution I will try it. This is a mistake if I let them feel amazing after a performance like this, football is sometimes like this," he added.

Pep Guardiola now faces the possibility of being fined by the FA and the Premier League for making the media wait too long.

Victory makes Spurs rise to fifth place standings with 37 points.

While Man City is getting far behind from the top of the standings, Liverpool with a distance of 22 points.

Asked about how he responded to Man City who was very far from Liverpool, Pep instead quipped one of the Premier League officials about what he said two years ago.

"The last two seasons, the Premier League officials said that it would no longer happen (the team with dominant points) and it was not good for City to win the gear that way. Now it (will be won) by Liverpool. So now Premier League officials must focus on that thing, "he said.

"We are very far, they are unstoppable, they won a lot of points, we lost points like this match, like when at Anfield. Now the target is to qualify for the Champions League next season."

"Two seasons ago, we had 100 points and finished 19 points above the Mourinho team. Last season we finished above Liverpool which was very strong. Today, not the right time to ask what to do next," he added.
