AVB bemoans 'woeful performance'

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas said his side had paid a "heavy price'' for a woeful performance after being mauled 6-0 at Man City.

The Portuguese may be under a bit of pressure after the North London side's second defeat in a row - following a 1-0 loss at home to Newcastle before the international break. They have now not scored in their last three league games.

But while Tottenham came away from that game cursing their luck after a phenomenal performance from Magpies goalkeeper Tim Krul, they were outclassed in every department by City here.

"It's difficult to take,'' said the former Chelsea manager. "I thought we had a very, very good reaction to the goal suffered. That's probably the only positive of the game we have is the moment we suffered - the first 20 minutes before they scored the second goal. .

"It's not a lot to look for, everything went bad for us. From being one of the best defences in the country to suffering six goals. City were excellent, we were extremely poor and we paid a heavy price. .

"From the moment we suffer the 4-0 we weren't mentally playing the game. We have high expectations to do well and because of those expectations, to see us 4-0 down after 51 minutes, that mentally takes us very, very down.'' .

Meanwhile, Samir Nasri believes Manchester City are proving what they are capable of. While the Sky Blues are struggling on their travels, Sunday's thumping win kept City's 100 percent record at home in tact, with six victories and 26 goals scored at Eastlands this season as they bounced back from a 1-0 defeat at Sunderland last time out. .

"It was really good and we showed once again that against the big squads we always respond at home. It's a great result, 6-0, you don't see it that often,'' Nasri told Sky Sports 1. "We maintained our great run at home. "All the goals were really nice, it's difficult to pick one of them. We scored six goals but we had a clean sheet as well.'' .

Man-of-the-match Aguero added: "I'm very happy. Now we must continue the same way.''
