[SPORT NEWS] Danny Murphy: Man CIty have got their magic back... but they've got this big flaw


City looked back to their best against Tottenham on Saturday. Guardiola's men raced into a 2-0 lead at the Etihad - albeit with the help of two Hugo Lloris howlers. But Spurs fought back an earned a draw though goals from Dele Alli and Son Heung-min. And Murphy has delivered his verdict on Man City's display. He told Match of the Day 2: "Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva playing ahead of Fernandinho is basically two No.10s - rather than two holders and one No.10. "What it creates is magic all over the pitch - particularly when they're that good. "De Bruyne was fantastic. "The problem they've got is even when they are dominating games and creating chances is as Pep said they're not scoring enough chances. "But defensively, even when they're on top they look vulnerable. "I was watching thinking Tottenham haven't played well but they're still in it." Following the weekend round of games, City are now 12 points behind leaders Chelsea. Tottenham are closer to their London rivals, trailing the Blues by nine points.
