Manchester City got themselves back into the top of English Premier League standings after their success in taking all three points from their Monday away fixture against Tottenham Hotspur.
Keen on getting their table topping position back, Man City immediately piled on the pressure since kick off and got their rewards within no time as they went one goal up after just six minutes of play through Riyad Mahrez’s close range finish.
That early goal triggered positive response from Tottenham as they were determined to get back on level terms and not disappointing their home crowd.
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men couldn’t get that equalizing goal during the first 45 minutes as none of their efforts were successful in breaking down their opponent’s defense.
The match got more intense after the break as both sides continue their surge for goals, City to secure their win while Spurs are keen on getting that equalizer.
Despite both sides’ relentless effort, none of them were fruitful as no more goals were scored until the final whistle was blown with Pep Guardiola’s men securing all three points from that match.
A precious result indeed for Man City as they picked up maximum points on one of their potentially tough opponent this season and maintaining their lead at the top of standings.
