Ilkay Gundogan reveals the reason behind Manchester City’s defeat to Tottenham

Manchester City star Ilkay Gundogan believes they are making too many mistakes in the Champions League, as they were beaten 1-0 by Tottenham Hotspur in their quarter-final first leg. Gundogan told Sky Deutschland: "We were not brave enough in the game and we made a lot of simple mistakes. I have the feeling we are nervous in important Champions League games. We always make the wrong decisions. In these matches, we always want to do something special because it means (going through to the) Champions League semi-finals. Sometimes less is more." Sergio Aguero was denied by Hugo Lloris after City awarded a penalty and Gundogan thinks the game would have been much different had Argentina scored: "Negative events like that always set us back far too much. Had we scored from the penalty we'd have taken Tottenham apart. But instead, we withdrew from the game. That must not happen to a big team. That's why we're not there yet." Son Heung-Min's goal in the new Tottenham Stadium leave City with a deficit overturn in next week's return leg. Source-Daily Mail
