Kane and Tottenham surprised Manchester City – Premier League – Playon99 News



The Premier League is red hot: the Citizens lost to Spurs and Liverpool -who won their match- is one step away from the top. Kane and Son gave a recital to beat the leaders at the Etihad Stadium during a match that had two goals in stoppage time – Playon99 News

In the preview, it looked like a match that would be for the heart attack, but even in the best scenarios, we could not imagine this.

Tottenham visited Manchester City and played a sober game. With all the players in their own half and at times all 10 outfield players in the area to then go on the counterattack.

It was not an easy task because the Citizens were clear that they had to open spaces on their right for Ryan Sessegnon to be in charge of Spurs, but Antonio Conte commanded a great team that knew how to have two well-positioned strikers and two players – Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal- who were key.

It all started with Kulusevski’s surprise 1-0 on the half-hour mark: Harry Kane pivoted in the middle of the field, Heung-Min Son ran with a clear path, and unloaded to the center for the Ukrainian to calmly convert.

Manchester City came out, as usual, to hit the opposition at any cost and played some good soccer, but the goal came in the least expected way.

Raheem Sterling crossed from a distance, but Hugo Lloris tried to cut it out and the goalkeeper left the ball short at the feet of Ilkay Gundogan, who did not hesitate to score the equalizer.

For the second half, things were clear: the Citizens were constantly pressing and the comfort zone was in the opponent’s area, but if Tottenham had the slightest space, they would take advantage of it.

And so the two stars of the match reappeared. Son took a ball outside the area and, with subtlety, located a player who came in like a hurricane: Harry Kane.

The English striker defined with a touch and made it 2-1, which seemed a utopia due to the few chances they generated.

Once again Manchester City had to pull the cart, but they are used to an idea. They played as if it was a handball match around the opponent’s area and provoked constant attacks.

All Tottenham players mounted inside the box to avoid misfortune. Until a mistake by one of the best players of the match.

Cristian Romero, who cleared and cut off everything in front of him, dived to sweep to avoid a short cross and handled the ball.

If the penalty was as big as a house as everyone says? Well, it is a play of interpretation that is only decided by the referee’s mind: the Tottenham player threw himself vehemently but wanted to hide his arm as a voluntary act of the body.

Riyad Mahrez was in charge of the penalty kick and did not shake at the time of nailing it into an angle to put the 2-2 that seemed definitive at the 92nd minute of the match.

Just when we thought there could be no more, Tottenham went looking for space as if nothing was happening.

To everyone’s surprise, Rodrigo Bentancur made the excellent decision to throw a long ball to Kulusevski and the Ukrainian crossed. Who popped up in the 95th minute? Once again Kane slipped between the center-backs like a locomotive and in agonizing fashion decreed the 3-2 in favor of Spurs.

The Premier League has no competition. It is the best tournament in the world not only in terms of the way it is played but also in terms of its development.

Tottenham came into this match with three consecutive defeats and beat the leader of the standings who – due to Liverpool’s victory over Norwich, also complicated – is in danger of being overtaken.

With 12 rounds remaining, Manchester City is the leader with 63 points, while the team led by Jurgen Klopp is behind with 57 points and a game in hand.
