Tottenham Hotspur Stun Manchester City With 3-2 Win, Title Race Is BLOWN WIDE OPEN

Tottenham Hotspur have defeated Manchester City 3-2 this evening to blow the Premier League title race wide open.

Spurs arrived at the Etihad Stadium on horrific run having lost three games in a row.

Antonio Conte's side were in dreamland within four minutes however as Harry Kane sent Son Heung-min into the City half with a reverse pass.

Son darted into the box and drew Ederson out of his net, before squaring the ball to Dejan Kulusevski who tapped home.


City grew into the game and dominated, with the breakthrough coming in the 33rd minute through Ilkay Gundogan.

Raheem Sterling fizzed a ball into the box which Hugo Lloris spurned under pressure from Kevin De Bruyne.

It bounced out to Gundogan who powered home for his fifth league goal of the season.


City dominated after half time but sensationally found themselves behind once again thanks to Kane, who was linked with a move to Manchester last summer.

Son turned creator once again and whipped a lovely cross in for Kane who smashed home, first time, with authority.

It stunned the home side and Kane managed to get the ball in the back of the net again, but was judged to be offside.


City pushed for a second equaliser and it came in extra time after Cristian Romero was judged to have handled in the penalty area.

Riyad Mahrez stepped up and fired his spot kick into the top corner and City hoped to grab a winner.

Instead, Kane headed home his second of the game in the 95th minute in spectacular fashion.

Spurs have now done the double over City this campaign and moved up to seventh in the table.


At the top of the table, City's lead over Liverpool has been cut to six points and the Reds have a game in hand.
