Manchester City 1-0 Tottenham. After the game in midweek, it was a scoreline that was very likely to because both gave everything they had on Wednesday evening.

However, the game looked as if it was going to be a very similar occasion to the Champions League tie when Phil Foden opened the scoring in just under 5 minutes.

The hosts lost their energy as the first half fizzled out, though, which meant that the second half became a very nervy affair. The way the first half changed was symbolised by Kevin De Bruyne thumping the ball out of play, as he went down injured with what has kept him out all season.

That is sad news for Man City and De Bruyne himself, because he was just coming into some fine form.

Nonetheless, the second half was far more tense than the first half because Man City just did not look as if they were going to score. However, the likes of Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden kept running and figuring, ensuring that Man City saw out the win.
