Tottenham 0-2 Manchester City

Manchester City have taken a commanding position in the Premier League title race with a 2-0 away victory at Tottenham Hotspur. This win sets up a decisive scenario: a victory over West Ham United in David Moyes’s final game this Sunday would secure the title for City once again.

This situation is particularly gutting for former West Ham captain Declan Rice, who joined Arsenal in pursuit of trophies, having turned down an opportunity to move to Manchester City.

The pressure was on Pep Guardiola’s City team as they faced a Tottenham side still fighting for European qualification themselves. The match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium—New White Hart Lane or whatever it’s called theses days—was not a memorable classic, but Manchester City clinched the win late in the game with an Erling Haaland penalty.

Arsenal will host Everton in their final league match, but the outcome will be moot if Manchester City defeats West Ham at the London Stadium.
