Gary Neville has claimed Manchester City are suffering from ‘complacency’ following their 3-3 draw with Tottenham at the Etihad. 

Dejan Kulusevski struck an injury-time header for Ange Postecoglou’s side to them a point against the reigning champions. 

City missed several chances to score more than the three goals they got and Neville says Pep Guardiola will not be impressed with his side’s performance.  

Speaking on Sky Sports, the former Manchester United defender said: ‘What he won’t like Guardiola is decision, the complacency, defensive lapses and giving up points again to Tottenham.’

Former City star Micah Richards mirrored those views as he claimed something ‘isn’t right’ at the club this season.

‘Something just not right, too easy to play against on counter, individual mistakes again, seeing out game at end is all about concentration,’ Richards said. 

‘(They) have to concentrate in key moments and didn’t do that. Spurs fantastic and found a way. .Just gaps in midfield, defence, organisation at this moment in time is non existent.’ 

City fell behind inside six minutes through Son Heung-min’s strike before the South Korean forward found the back of his own net three minutes later. 

Phil Foden put the hosts ahead just after the half hour marked bt they were, once again pegged back, by a curling effort from Giovani Lo Celso after 69 minutes. 

Jack Grealish thought he scored the winner after coming off the bench to put City 3-2 up nine minutes from time. But Kulusevski’s powerful header ensured the spoils were shared. 

The 3-3 draw with Ange Postecoglou’s side has seen City drop to third in the table, three points behind league leaders Arsenal. 

They will hope to return to winning ways on Wednesday night when they visit Villa Park to take on in-form Aston Villa.
