Manchester City suffered their first defeat of the 2016/17 campaign after Tottenham Hotspur registered a 2-0 victory over Pep Guardiola's side at White Hart Lane on 2 October. After an impressive start to the season, City lost their first match under their new manager.

The Spaniard took charge at the Etihad in the summer after successful spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. After 10 consecutive wins in all competitions, the Premier League leaders were forced to come from behind on three occasions to settle for a 3-3 draw against Celtic in the Champions League clash.

It was followed by a defeat at the hands of the north London club in the league. An own goal from Aleksandar Kolarov in the ninth minute followed by Dele Alli's goal in the 30th minute were sufficient for Tottenham to seal three points.

Guardiola's first league defeat at Barcelona came against Espanyol, who was managed by Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine got the better of the Catalan when his side faced City on Sunday.
