Tottenham 0-2 Manchester City live – Premier League result, Haaland double sends Guardiola’s side back to the top

CITY BACK IN VAPUT AS HAALAND BRACE DEFEAT SPURS

Erling Haaland’s brace moved Manchester City to the brink of an unprecedented fourth straight Premier League title after a hard-fought 2-0 win over Tottenham.

Haaland scored twice in the second half at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Pep Guardiola’s side overcame Arsenal to move two points clear at the top heading into the final day of the season.

Goalkeepers came to the rescue for both teams in a subdued first half with few chances, Rodrigo Bentancur and Phil Foden both denied.

City looked more intent after the break and went close within two minutes of the restart, Giuglielmo Vicario producing a wonderful reflex save to keep out Kevin De Bruyne’s fierce strike.

However, the Italian was powerless as the visitors went over four minutes later. De Bruyne was involved again, timing his run brilliantly to latch on to Bernardo Silva’s pass and meet the unmarked Haaland.

Spurs saw a great opportunity to equalize go begging with four minutes remaining. Brennan Johnson intercepted Manuel Akanji’s sloppy pass and released Heung-Min Son, whose effort was blocked by Stefan Ortega.

The substitute goalkeeper’s intervention proved crucial as City sealed the points early in stoppage time, a confident Haaland slotting a penalty into the top corner after Pedro Porro fouled Jeremy Doku.
