Manchester City 4-2 Tottenham Hotspur
Well what a crazy turn of events! City came out completely in control before surrendering two late first half goals to go in at halftime being booed off the pitch by their own fans.
Riyad Mahrez was the man of the match and rightfully so. He scored two goals and assisted in the other two. He was the key to City’s attack all night long, what a beautiful performance.
Spurs showed moments of class, but far too few to be seriously in contention. Arsenal are being chased at the top of the table but Tottenham are slipping slowly away from that top four.
It really was a game of two halves, with Conte’s boys fighting through and doing decent work but Guardiola’s gameplan ultimately coming to fruition in a stunning second-half comeback.
The top of that Premier League table is now a little more uncomfortable for the Gunners, as Man City close to within five points of them. There is now some daylight between City and Manchester United and that will leave Pep feeling a bit better about his chances of making a run at the title.
For Tottenham, they are in danger of slipping further behind Newcastle, letting that fourth place along with the Champions League berth that it carries, get away from their grasp.
