Kane defeats City and revives the Prime Minister

A double by striker Harry Kane, who scored the decisive goal in the 95th minute, gave Tottenham a victory at the Etihad Stadium and ended the Manchester City game (2-3) to revive the battle for the English Premier League title.

Pep Guardiola’s group could not avoid his third setback in the English competition. He played fifteen matches without losing. Fourteen wins and one draw. He hasn’t fallen since being beaten up by Crystal Palace on October 30. But he lost to Italian Antonio Conte’s side in a confrontation full of substitutes, with a frantic finish that fell on the London side.

The “citizen” stumbled encourages Liverpool. German Jurgen Klopp’s second team has six points and one game less than Pep Guardiola’s team. Everything is still open. The Reds, who have beaten Norwich before, are fully involved in the bidding.

City faced an opponent with clear ideas who executed the counterattack perfectly and made use of every one of his options. The field was Guardiola’s box that broke before his opponent asked and that he didn’t know how to cover the spaces he left open that Conte’s team used.

The scoreboard has been favorable to visitors again and again. Four minutes later, Tottenham advanced with a perfect counter-attack led by South Korean Heung-Min Son until they reached the area. The Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson intervened and the Korean handed the ball to Swede Dejan Kulusevsky, who shot it into the net.

City equalized in the 34th minute with a pass by Raheem Sterling inside the area that French Hugo Lloris did not stop in his 400th match. The rebound fell against German Ilkay Gundogan, who did not fail.

At the time of the match, the London team again took the lead. The son sent the ball into the center of the penalty area in another transitional play. Kane, who started the play, appeared first, beating Ederson again.

In extra time the match became turbulent. Manchester City found the equalizer thanks to a penalty kick for a handball by Argentine Christian Gabriel Romero, who had to check the video assistant referee, which was turned by the Algerian Riyad Mahrez.

With the match ending in a draw, a pass from the baseline by Dejan Kulusevsky hit Kane, who beat Ederson again to Pep Guardiola’s despair and the joy of Conte, who questioned after stacking three consecutive defeats and is now back in the fight for Europe.
