STAR MAN

Danny Rose. Put his body on the line in a fine defensive showing and offered Spurs a good outlet in attack.

MOMENT OF THE MATCH

Christian Eriksen. Sent the Spurs supporters into dreamland with his late winner. It was a fine finish after a great run by substitute Erik Lamela. There were obvious controversial elements to this victory but the Spurs fans behind the goal hardly seemed to care and they can now sense the excitement of a genuine title chase. We have to also mention THAT save from Hugo.

VIEW FROM THE BENCH

Both sides were set up well with a determination to attack but not without compromising their defensive solidity. City welcomed back Vincent Kompany and he made a big difference while the whole of the Spurs back line were solid. City boss Manuel Pellegrini may have been quietly fuming about the penalty but his decision to send on Kelechi Iheanacho worked perfectly. Unfortunately for him, Mauricio Pochettino’s substitute Erik Lamela also took his chance, setting up the winner.

  1. ???????????????????? Thumbs up to Hugo Lloris, he was so brave, so professional and his save was first class denying Otamendi almost an open chance for an equaliser. To me, this was the moment of the match, he was very alert and first to the ball, tugging it away that seems liked a goal for ManC in the 94th min stoppage time. His splendid save was as good as the winning goal scored by Eriksen. He is now our saviour and helps us brought home another 3 points instead of 1.
