City ease past Spurs

Manchester City demonstrated why the title looks destined to return to the Etihad after they comfortably defeated Tottenham 3-0.

Ilkay Gundogan scored twice for Pep Guardiola’s side who won their 16th straight game and their 11th consecutive game in the Premier League.


The match

Rodri gave City the lead from the penalty spot in the 23rd minute after Gundogan was fouled by Pierre-Emile Højbjerg.

It was a cakewalk for City with Spurs only occasionally threatening. Harry Kane smashed a free kick against the post, but the Englishman and Son Heung-Min were nullified and were starved of service.

Gundogan added a second for the hosts, controlling Raheem Sterling’s pass and beating Hugo Lloris at the near post.

The German midfielder then scored a superb third, turning Davinson Sanchez inside out after an outstanding long ball from goalkeeper Ederson.

It was his 11th goal in his last 12 games – he has scored more Premier League goals than any other player since the start of December.


What it means

City won their 11th consecutive game and are seven points clear of Manchester United with a game in hand.

Tottenham drop to ninth, but are just four points off the top four.


Stats

It’s been a remarkable turnaround for City since they lost to Tottenham in November.

City are unbeaten since the game, and have taken 41 points from 45 (W13, D2) to jump to the top of the league and stretch clear of their title rivals.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho’s side have taken just 16 points (W4, D4, L8) from 14 matches since they beat Man City 2-0.

Tottenham have lost four of their last five league games, as many defeats as in their previous 28 league matches.
