Premier League: Tottenham Hotspur Hold Manchester City

Tottenham Hotspur ended Manchester City’s 15-game Premier League winning streak as they held the champions to a 2-2 draw at the Etihad on Saturday.

After bossing the early exchange, City deservedly took the lead in 20th minute as Kevin De Bruyne’s cross found Raheem Sterling at the back post who headed low across goal and into the net.

Spurs were back on level terms in the 23rd minute thanks to Erik Lamela, who bent his shot from 20 yards past Ederson and into the bottom corner.

With 10 minutes remaining in the first half, City retook the lead in  the 35th minute as De Bruyne grabbed another assist, with Sergio Aguero diverting home from close range.

For the second time in the game, Spurs were back on level terms on 56 minutes through Lucas Moura, who had only been on for 15 seconds,  heading Erik Lamela’s corner past Ederson.

In the 92nd minute substitute Gabriel Jesus thought he had scored the winner for City after pouncing on a loose ball in the Spurs box and slammed it home. 

But after consulting the VAR, referee Michael Oliver overturned the goal due to a handball by Aymeric Laporte in the build-up.

City are now third in the league table on four points while Spurs are fifth on the same points.
