It has been an absolutely frantic first half at the Etihad Stadium between Manchester City and Spurs, as the hosts find themselves 3-2 ahead at the interval.
The game began in absolutely crazy fashion as the hosts found themselves ahead in the game with in the first 5 minutes courtesy of a brilliant hit from Raheem Sterling.
Tottenham responded in brilliantly fashion to going behind as a quickfire Son brace saw Tottenham lead the game 2-1 but the hosts drew back on level terms almost straight from kick-off as Bernado Silva’s deflected effort wrong-footed Hugo Lloris.
Raheem Sterling got on the act again around the 20th-minute mark as he swept the in Kevin De Bruyne’s cross to give City the lead in the game.
The game then settled down a bit after a crazy 20 minutes but both sides still had some good chances going forward.
Based on the first half, one would think that the scoring is certainly not over in this game.
Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted on social media to the frantic first half.
Genuinely not sure whether or not I can take another half of this. If I’m ever captured and require interrogation, the second they threaten to make me watch Tottenham play knockout football is when I start fucking singing.

So with all the drama of poor defending and injuries, when all is said and done, we are 45 mins away from the Champions League semi final. Come on!!!!!

No Winks, no Sissoko, no Dier, no Kane. How the hell are we going to do this? Hope Son bags a goal from somewhere

We will get chances to kill the tie off but we need to keep our heads clear. The occasion looks like it’s getting the better of some of them – even those who are usually reliable. Biggest second 45 of our season coming up. And I don’t know how I can put myself through this…
