Premier League: Manchester City 2-2 Tottenham

Manchester City

Tottenham fought back from two goals down to grab a dramatic 2-2 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Within the space of five second-half minutes, Lloris mistakes had gifted goals to Leroy Sane and Kevin De Bruyne, the Belgium international scoring his first City goal in 14 games in the simplest manner.

But Tottenham halved the deficit with their first shot on target as Dele Alli headed in from Kyle Walker’s cross.

Manchester City went ahead shortly after half-time as Sane was played in with a ball over the top, Lloris failed to clear with a diving header and the German tapped into an empty net.

Moments later, De Bruyne was afforded similar luxury to tuck home after Lloris had inexplicably spilled Sterling’s cross.


Tottenham Pulled one back through Dele Alli’s header before they were the beneficiaries of a decision that left Guardiola raging and paved the way for the visitors to scramble a point.

Manchester almost increased the scoreline but the referee waived away the penalty call and immediately, Kane flicked Christian Eriksen’s pass on for Son to fire into the bottom corner.

Manchester City pressed for a winner but were frustrated once more when Brazilian teenager Gabriel Jesus, on as for his debut as a substitute for Sterling, saw an effort ruled out for offside.

A point apiece does completes a fantastic day for leaders Chelsea who also saw Liverpool and Manchester United lose and draw respectively and could be as many as nine points clear if they beat Hull City at home on Sunday.
