Harry Winks has been low key GARBAGE today. Made wrong decision on who to pass the ball to every ???? single ???? god ???? damn ???? time!

Harry Winks even more hesitant than usual to try a forward pass & the way he’s lingering on the ball & then passing it 10 yards to a CB in his own half is playing right into City’s hand with their high press #COYS #THFC

Trippier and winks have been too weak and are so reluctant to play forward today! #COYS

Manchester City dominated the first half and took the lead in the 14th minute when Ilkay Gundogan was left totally unmarked by the Spurs defence to head in Leroy Sane’s corner.
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made two superb first-half saves to deny Sergio Aguero and Gundogan. Spurs striker Harry Kane also came close with a curling effort, but Marucio Pochettino’s side early outplayed in the first half.
