Zinchenko: We have to improve

Oleksandr Zinchenko gave his thoughts on City's 2-2 draw against Tottenham to CityTV.

Oleksandr Zinchenko has demanded improvement after City's 2-2 draw against Tottenham. 

Pep Guardiola's side dominated the game, recording 30 shots to Spurs' three, and were denied a late winner when Gabriel Jesus' strike was chalked off after VAR adjudged Aymeric Laporte to have handled the ball in the build up. 

The draw ended City's 15-game winning run in the Premier League, dating back to January, but Zinchenko believes that City's competitors will also drop points over the course of the 38-game campaign.

"I can’t describe the feeling inside [the dressing room]," he told CityTV. "We dropped two points today, that’s it.

"I think we had a good game, we created a lot of chances to score goals but at the same time we conceded from the two chances that they had.

"But the result is not good for us but this season is going to be so long that I’m pretty sure that everyone is going to drop some points."

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring for City before Erik Lamela drew Spurs level, with Sergio Aguero's strike then cancelled out by Lucas Moura's second-half header. 

Jesus' 91st-minute strike was ruled out by the new technology, and Zinchenko says it is something his teammates will have to live with.

"We dropped two points so everybody is going to forget about the 30 shots that we had and everyone is going to remember the result at the end of the game," he explained. 

"They’re a good team. They had three shots and they scored twice.

"We have to improve ourselves. I think we played quite well. At the end they made the decision and we have to accept it, we can’t change anything."
