How 10-man Tottenham held on to beat Manchester City 1-0 thanks to Harry Kane’s record-breaking goal


Tottenham 1-0 Manchester City:

Manchester City’s awful record at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium continued on Sunday as Pep Guardiola’s men were beaten there for the fifth straight game.

arry Kane fired Spurs in front in the 15th minute with his record-breaking 267th goal for the club.

Kane’s goal was the result of a well-organized pressing move from Spurs.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who was later selected as the Player of the Match, intercepted the ball high up the pitch before setting up Kane for a first-time finish.

City came close to levelling in added time at the end of the first-half when Riyad Mahrez saw a fierce strike bounce back off the crossbar.

But that is as close as the visitors came to scoring their first ever goal at this stadium.

Tottenham had to play the final three minutes plus added time without defender Cristian Romero, who was sent off for receiving two yellow cards.

Spurs manager Antonio Conte was not in the dugout on Sunday.

Conte was at home recovering after undergoing gallbladder surgery earlier in the week.

Tottenham were therefore under the control of Conte’s assistant manager, Cristian Stellini.

Speaking before kick-off, Stellini confirmed that Conte had trusted him to take full control of team selection.
