Tottenham's preparations were no doubt disrupted by the sacking of Jose Mourinho on Monday with 29-year-old coach Ryan Mason taking charge of only his second game.

Harry Kane had recovered from injury to start the fixture but failed to make a real impact as Spurs were overrun by the quality of their opponents in front of a crowd of 8,000, as fans were allowed back into stadiums for the first time after the pandemic.

Asked whether the fans made a difference to the victory, Guardiola said: “It's much better. There was good noise and we can celebrate with them. We played really well, incredible.”
