Manchester City thrash Tottenham, one win away from EPL title

Manchester City thrash Tottenham, one win away from EPL title

Goals from Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan put City 2-0 ahead after the 25-minute mark, before a second-half goal from Raheem Sterling cancelled out a reply from Christian Eriksen just before the break at Wembley. Manchester United is a -575 favorite on Sunday hosting West Bromwich Albion (+1600 to win, +575 to draw).

The 24-year-old forward had recently appealed Tottenham's second goal against Stoke City claiming that he got the last touch on the ball, before the Premier League approving the player's call and crediting him for the goal.

Manchester City's season took a blow with defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday.

After sweeping through most of the season in regal fashion, City had crashed down to earth with a bump over the last 10 days.

After last week's surprising defeat at home to crosstown rival Manchester United and two losses this month to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals, the Citizens were eager to get back on track, reports Efe.

City's hellish week had Guardiola warning his players that "anything can happen" as he recalled other great sporting collapses from seemingly invincible positions.

City's recent slump signifies a lack of belief within the squad, which has genuinely failed to recover from the first-leg defeat to Liverpool.

The England winger was involved in a footrace with Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and the France captain lost out.

Yet City had three good chances to restore their two goal lead, the two of those fell to Jesus who was twice put through but on each occasion got the ball caught up in his feet and the chances went begging.

Let public vote on final Brexit deal, says new United Kingdom campaign
Actor Stewart said in a media interview Sunday that if people voted to reject the exit deal, Britain would simply stay in the EU. The People's Vote campaign was launched today in North London in an attempt to unite a range of separate anti-Brexit activists.

Having found form again against Spurs, you'd bet on City setting more records before this historic season comes to an end.

While City have an embarrassment of riches from which to piece together a starting XI, they are without a number of key figures at present.

The foul was committed outside the box, so the decision to award a penalty was incorrect, but Lloris was ultimately fortunate not to be sent off by referee Moss for the foul.

AFC Bournemouth has an unenviable week of action coming up in the Premier League.

Ben Davies could have seen red for this tackle on Vincent Kompany. Harry Kane played the ball through for the Danish midfielder, whose shot was deflected back off his own leg and into the back of the net, sparking thousands of tweets saying Kane will claim the goal from folks who think they're really amusing.

Kane at least returned the favour as Eriksen scored in the 42nd minute.

City regained control after half-time and should have been out of sight as Jesus scuffed badly wide and Sterling fared no better with a woeful close-range miss.

The move allowed City a foundation to bag the decisive third goal that all but sealed the title.
