Tottenham Hotspur slumped to their 11th Premier League loss of the season yesterday as they were beaten 1-0 at the Etihad by Man City.
However, few Spurs fans would have complained about the result after just having eliminated the same opponents over two legs in the Champions League.
In truth, Spurs played well enough in the early Saturday Prem fixture to get at least a point, with Son and Moura both missing key chances.
Having said that, if you offered fans, or the team for that matter, the Champions League semi final or a Premier League win, few would go for the latter.
Unfortunately, this loss did give both Arsenal and Chelsea the chance to overtake Spurs this game week, plunging the Lilywhites into fifth.
Chelsea play Burnley at home tomorrow night, while Arsenal took on Crystal Palace at home this evening.
Andros Townsend and co did Tottenham a huge favour though, as Palace turned up at the Emirates and beat Arsenal 3-2, with goals from Benteke, Zaha, and McArthur.
That leaves the Gunners one point behind Tottenham in the table, with three of their final four Prem games coming away from home.
