“I’m happy with the way that we ended a run of three defeats,” Fonte told the club's official website. "I’m not happy with the result because I think we were the stronger team and that we did enough to get the three points.
“However, it’s a point against a very good team, a top team who have spent millions and have a lot of the top players in the world.
“They had a few chances, of course, but they are Manchester City and they have quality players. We had our chances too, and we could have scored as well many more goals so we could have won the game.
“We believe in what we do, we have a philosophy, we know our style of play and we just need to keep doing what we do well.
“We knew that having gone behind we were going to have to step up our game. Sometimes you have to give the opponents credit, but I thought that we showed a lot of resilience, character and belief to do well."
