Tottenham Hotspur’s duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have now assisted one another for 36 Premier League goals, the joint-most of any pairing in the competition’s history, moving level with Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard.

With time running out, Cristian Romero handled in the area to allow Riyad Mahrez to equalise in stoppage time equaliser from the spot, but there was time for another twist.

Kane beat Kyle Walker to head home in the fifth minute of added time to earn Spurs their first double over defending Premier League champions.

A first win in four lifts Spurs to seventh, on 39 points, four behind fourth-placed Manchester United, who have played two more matches.

Manchester City’s lead at the top is six points, having played a match more than Liverpool.


After the match Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said ,”I said a few weeks ago we need to win many games.

Every game will be a big, big battle.We knew it, and it will be good to understand how difficult it is. Since October we didn’t lose one game in the Premier League.

I had the feeling they have fantastic players and a fantastic manager.

We knew after three defeats they would be back. There was practically no space in the area.

After that, they could keep the ball and with Kane, it gave time to Son who could run. In general we were there all the time. We were there but we couldn’t win.”

Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte said ,””I think this type of performance has to give us confidence. We showed that we are working very well, that we are creating a stable team, because when you have this kind of performance after three defeats against City, it means we are starting to be stable. In my opinion, in my experience, to give good results, you have to be stable, not up and down. I’m pleased, especially for the players, because the players showed great commitment, great belief and it was incredible after the penalty and 2-2, okay, you could say we’re happy because 2-2 is a good result against Manchester City, but instead we wanted to win.”
