Unfortunately I wasn't wrong in comparing this lot to our time under Hughes.

Twelve points from eight games marks Manchester City’s lowest points total at this stage of a Premier League campaign since 2008-09 (10 points).
Their 10 goals scored is their lowest after eight games since 2006-07 (six).

Unfortunately Peps post match comments were as predictable as the tactics and result.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "It could be better, we played similar to how have all season. We did not defend good for the first goal. They then defended so deep, they defended with six and it was not easy.
"We had our chances, but we couldn’t score and they made two or three chances on the counter attack and we lost the game.
“We knew before the game that you cannot give them the first goal. We had more chances and them but we lost. Mourinho’s teams are like this, you make a mistake and they punish you on the counter attack.
"It is not easy Harry Kane and Ndombele are on halfway, the space is so difficult, our possession play was good, but football is the boxes and that is where we were not good.

Sorry Pep but itsy happening too often. You're being paid good money to sort it out so best you roll your sleeves up and get to it!!!
Our possession play was good?

Did we have a goal kick tonight? Can't remember Eddie playing a ball out. Spurs certainly knew what they were doing. How many touches did Ederson have.

Simple, we are missing the magician another player we have not replaced. Now it’s all fallen onto KDB his game is suffering and Foden is a completely different player to Dave.

The magician is irreplaceable. He’s even taken Real Sociadad to top of la Liga

Worrying things....
1: Pep ( and everyone else) surely knew how Mourinho would set up, and failed to deal with it. Forewarned -should be- forearmed.
2: We couldn’t break down a back four that contained Eric Dier.

Rodri was not our problem.. he played well particularly in the first half. Our problem is not individual. It’s collective. We need to change the way we play.
How can you say our problem is not individual. I thing this is exactly the source of all of our problems. Bernardo, Mahrez, KdB, Sterling, Ederson...the games like this one is when they are supposed to come up with the goods and they just couldn't.
And as a collective, we are failing psychologically. Chasing the game became the unsolvable problem for this team.
I was really disappointed with Pep after Arsenal in FA cup and Lyon. But tonight, it was all up to the players, so good luck to him and how he switch them on again.
