Spurs rarely threatened Pep Guardiola's men while going forward, but one incident involving Kane has managed to get fans talking.
The England international attempted to get away from Dias' lunge and eventually tumbled to the ground.

Slow motion footage looks to show Dias timing his tackle perfectly and winning the ball before taking his man.
Commentary claims referee Paul Tierney told the Portuguese international he was penalised for coming in from behind.
Fans have reacted to the incident and they think Kane is beginning to develop a reputation.
That's a flop straight from the University of Neymar and Kane graduated, with honors, with this performance. What a load of :poop:- Rudy Conrad (@RudyConrad2) April 25, 2021
Refs are so bad these days. You're not allowed to tackle even fairly anymore.- :trophy::trophy::trophy::trophy:+ :trophy::trophy: (@Dakeb_MCFC) April 25, 2021
Quite ridiculous!!...........Look at that scream, Oscar award!!- Steve Dixon (@SteveDixonPhoto) April 25, 2021
Some do believe Kane warranted going down however as Dias did look to make the slightest of contact.
First of all he's not the most shameless man in world football. Most players occasionally dive and he only occasionally goes down easily. Secondly if you watch closely Dias leg makes contact with Kanes leg BEFORE the ball. The fall is dramatic but it's a foul. City fan.- JD (@xJoshuaD) April 25, 2021
Not the best example of Kane's cheating.- Peter Lee (@PELee1953) April 26, 2021
The tackle was from the Bryan Robson school of tackling.
He went with his wrong leg, increasing potential for self-injury, because he'd been beaten for pace and he'd never make it in one more stride with his right.
The 27-year-old is England captain and one of the Premier League's best strikers, but a lack of silverware will weigh heavy on his mind.
He told Sky Sports in 2017: "In three years time, if I haven't won a few trophies by then, it'll be disappointing."
Four years on and Kane's cabinet is still empty for now. He's been linked with a move away from north London this summer as a result.
