Manchester City 2-2 Spurs
In their best performance for some time, Pep Guardiola’s side outplayed the league’s form team but couldn’t hang on to a two goal lead as there was a second half flurry of goals and live betting thrills.
And the enormity of the game certainly produced a brilliant first half. City will have wondered how they didn’t go in at half time ahead after playing some scintillating football with Sergio Aguero testing Hugo Lloris to the full.
David Silva was back to his old self, pulling the strings to release the strikers at will and Spurs were delighted to walk back out onto the pitch for the second half at 0-0.
And then the second half exploded into life in a pulsating ten minute period where City went 2-0 up when Leroy Sane took advantage of a Lloris mistake and the Spurs keeper made another howler to drop the ball at the feet of a grateful Kevin de Bruyne. But Spurs halved the deficit when Dele Alli converted the visitors’ first shot on target.
City winger Raheem Sterling should have had a penalty but was denied and just a minute later Son Heung-Min made it 2-2 to stun the stadium.
Pep turned to new signing Gabriel Jesus for inspiration at the death, and the new signing started sensationally, firing a low ball across the box, heading just over and then scoring what he thought was the winner before he was flagged offside.
A point wasn’t what the home fans wanted and Pep couldn’t believe they hadn’t won, but bigger deficits than nine points have been made up and City need to believe.
Great game to watch too!
