Speaking to our colleagues at RMC Sport following Manchester City’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last night, winger Riyad Mahrez remained optimistic.
“Nobody is defeated. We know that a quarter-final of the Champions’ League is never easy even if we know Tottenham well. That is part of football. It was a match where both clubs game-managed. In the second half, we were better than them. They scored this goal. It does not change anything in terms of our approach for the 2nd leg. There is nothing disastrous.”
