Manchester City’s Awaited Victory
City, despite missing the benched Kevin De Bruyne, had managed to save the victory. With Alvarez partnering Haaland for the first time since August and 18 years old Rico Lewis impressively stepping inside from rightback, they built up a head of steam towards the end of the half. The youngster tested Hugo Lloris from distance before the goalkeeper but it was totally a failure. But an error from Ederson handed Spurs a rare opening goal.
The keeper’s pass out to Rodri was a poor one and the midfielder could only turn the ball to Kulusevski to fire in. It was just the second time in 10 Premier League games Spurs had scored the first goal. They had another within three minutes. Kane slid in to win the ball in a challenge with Rodri in the box and then blasted through the six-yard area. Ederson could only pass the ball out and Emerson was there to head home.
Mahrez was at the heart of it, with Alvarez eventually keeping his composure after the winger’s cross had caused a scramble in the Spurs box. Ahrez then picked up an assist for Haaland’s awaited goal, selflessly heading Rodri’s effort to make the goal for the Norwegian to make it 22 goals in this Premier League season
There was a handball shout against Richarlison waved away as City threw players forwards in search of more and they got another with the help of an error from Lenglet, who allowed Ederson’s long ball to bounce off him and run through for Mahrez to convert his man. City 4th goal.
“The win is massive. Man City have got that thing now that Man Utd had when I was a player. You’d hear they were 2-0 down but you didn’t believe they would get beaten. Man City have got that now.”Since May, they’ve gone 2-0 down five times in the Premier League and they’ve lost none they’ve won three and drawn two. So there’s something special about them.
