Pre-season friendly: Tottenham Hotspur 0 Manchester City 3

Tottenham Hotspur’s time in America ended on a disappointing note, as Manchester City ran out 3-0 winners in Nashville at the weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side were looking to bounce back after a 3-2 loss to A.S. Roma during the week.

But City proved too strong with Pep Guardiola’s team earning a comprehensive 3-0 victory in the International Champions Cup.

John Stones opened the scoring after 10 minutes, heading past Hugo Lloris following a Kevin De Bruyne cross.

Raheem Sterling added a second in the 73rd minute before Brahim Diaz made it 3-0 in stoppage time.

It was a frustrating way for Spurs to end their tour to the States, although would have given Pochettino plenty of food for thought.
