Manchester City on Sunday, August 15, paraded the most expensive team in the Premier League history against Tottenham as they kicked off the defense of their title with defeat.

Pep Guardiola and his wards were so superb last season in the Premier League winning the title and one would have expected them to start the new term on an impressive note but they failed.

The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling were unable to save Manchester City from a defeat as Son's goal condemned the Etihad landlords to a 1-0 defeat.

What next for Manchester City?

Following the defeat against Spurs in their first game of the season, Manchester City will now return home and start preparation for their next tie against Norwich City.

Norwich City on the other hand were not impressive in their first game of the new season losing 3-0 at home against Liverpool in which Mohamed Salah, Firmino and Jota scored.

YEN.com.gh had earlier reported how Man City began the 2021/22 Premier League campaign on the wrong foot following their disappointing 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

City, who are the reigning champions were looking to begin their title defence on a flying note only for the north Londoners to silence them at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Heung-Min Son's solitary goal in the second half was the only difference as Spurs collected all three points under the tutelage of their new boss, Nuno Espirito.

City had the best chance to score the opener inside just five minutes of gameplay, only for Fernandinho to head just wide of an empty net.

With the visitors having a blistering start to the match, Spurs slowly grew into the match and almost broke the deadlock in the 24th minute but Ederson denied them after he made a sensational block on the line.
