Spurs are now ninth in the Premier League table, four points off the top four.
But Mourinho was pleased with his side’s performance at the Etihad despite going down 3-0.
The Portuguese said: “Going in a football direction, I believe that in the first half, we were good, we started the game very positively, we didn’t fear them, didn’t have problems, didn’t have any defensive problems, even playing in an offensive way like we tried to do.
“Once more, unlucky, the Harry Kane ball, I don’t know how it’s not a goal, and unlucky with another penalty of modern days.
