Tottenham were praised for their high-intensity pressing against Manchester City on Sunday and tracking data reveals they broke their running record for this season. However, they still fell short of Tony Pulis' marathon men at West Brom.

Spurs covered 118.8km at White Hart Lane as they secured a 2-0 victory over Manchester City. In that match Pep Guardiola's men ran 4km less: 114.8km.

Afterwards Pochettino applauded his men's work rate and Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry praised the way the hosts closed down City's players all over the pitch for 90 minutes.
