Man City topped Tottenham on the way to the 16th consecutive win
Manchester City definitely beat and beat the Tottenham 4: 1 Tottenham at Etihad Stadium, recording 16 consecutive successes in the Premier League. Ilkay Gundogan (14 ‘), Kevin de Bourget (70’) and Rahim Stirling (80 ‘and 90’) scored for the “citizens”, and Christian Eriksen (93 ‘) realized the honorary shot of the Spurs. Josep Guardiola’s selection could have been much more convincing, but Gabriel Jesse hit the penalty bar, and Stirling made three absurdities in addition. Hugo Loris was also reported with several good rescues.
Kyle Walker, Ilkay Gundogan, and Lorey Sane replaced Daniello, Bernardo Silva and David Silva in the starting lineup of City. Keuron Tripier, Musa Dembele and Dele Ali started for Tottenham.
City’s prosperity in the first part was pretty tangible, but “citizens” managed to reach just one goal. It was realized by Ilkay Gundogan in the 14th minute. The German was thrown into the penalty area and Sene’s head was right in the corner. In the 25th minute Ederson found Sane with a 50-meter pass. The German went on to Aguero, who shot from a small angle, but Loris was killed. Stirling added an add-on but sent the ball over the beam. Shortly thereafter, Tottenham’s guards shot another dangerous blow to Gundogan. In the 30th minute De Deorene found a very good Sane, who went on to Aguero, whose shot was blocked by Danny Rose.
Only in the 35th minute and the guests created something dangerous. Harry Kain received from Eriksen and shot at 20 meters, but the ball went off the far beam.
In the added time of the first part, Loris rescued another Gundogan shot.
The start of the second half was filled with several pretty gross violations. Delph and Kane were given yellow cards, and Tottenham’s attacker could even be expelled as he was late and went roughly to Stirling’s feet.
In the 56th minute, Ederson had to intervene decisively for the first time and did so, saving a very dangerous Kane shot of 20 meters. In the 67th minute Sane fired well into a penalty box and fired, but Loris slaughtered. Stirling got a chance to make an add-on, but a few meters away sent the ball over the door.
Three minutes later, CRAIG POWON regained Tottenham for the second time after showing only a yellow card to Dele Ali for a very rude entry into De Bodeyn’s ankle. The Belgian had to get medical help, but then he got to his feet and seconds later he doubled the host’s advance. De Bourne was on the left and decided to finish alone. Lorenz touched the ball, but she went into his door – 2: 0.
A few minutes later, Verdhoenne stumbled upon De Broeing in the penalty area, penalty for City. Gabriel Jezus fired, but the ball rattled to the left. Stirling again got a chance to add, but for the third time he sent the ball over the door from a clean position. In the 80th minute, Stirling was scored after receiving a 3: 0 goal from Sane. The English national also reached a second goal at the very end after taking advantage of Eric Dyer’s fatal mistake in defense. Sterling pushed the ball between Loris’ feet and made 4: 0. In the added time, Christian Erikensen scored the visitors’ corner with a nice shot from the border of the penalty area.
Manchester City already has 52 points – 14 more than Manchester United, who plays tomorrow, and Chelsea. Tottenham is in seventh position with 31 points.
