And the English striker is an exceptional player who can make a problem for a team at any time. He proved it at the Etihad against City, whom he knocked down with his ability to generate danger.

Tottenham took an early lead in the game

It took Tottenham four minutes to cause City their first upset. Four minutes to create the first counter. Four minutes for Kane to give a superb pass to Son's run, for him to face Ederson and give it to Kulusevski, who started for the first time with his first goal as a Spur.

Constant harassment and persistent attack by Guardiola's team after being down on the scoreboard did not bear fruit until 33' when Gündogan took advantage of the only mistake by Lloris. The Frenchman hesitated to block a ball that De Bruyne was going for, and left the ball clear for the German to shoot at will.

The second half was more of the same. City, overwhelmingly dominant, wanted the second goal, and they found it, but against them. Kane, in the 59th minute, again connected with Son or tried to. The ball was intercepted, but not stolen, by City. Sessegnon grabbed the ball, gave it to Son and the latter assisted Kane to shoot past Ederson to make it 1-2, to the astonishment of the Sky Blue backline.

City couldn't crack the Spur defense until Romero's handball in the penalty area

The minutes passed and City found themselves trying to break down the defense that Conte had proposed, until in the added time, a clear penalty for handball by Romero, which had to be flagged after a VAR warning, allowed the Citizens to have a clear opportunity to equalize.

Mahrez converted it, and in a gesture of determined ambition, his teammates picked the ball out of the back of the net to get it to the center circle as quickly as possible and give Tottenham as little excuse as possible to continue wasting time.

The scenario was perfect for an epic, but it did not have the ending that the Sky Blues had hoped for. Because as in the Greek tragedies, the ending was not what they wished for. It was, as they were, educational: excessive ambition takes its toll.

Those who forgive lose, and Harry Kane knows it

Because with the team turned to attack Walker lost a ball that turned into a Tottenham attack. An attack that should not have been very dangerous without the great Harry Kane, the striker Guardiola is pining for, in his ranks.

The English striker's double brought madness to the visiting fans and desolation to the rest of the stadium, including Pep Guardiola, who was unable to believe what was happening.

City lost a game in which they shot 21 times (although only four on goal), took ten corners, had the ball more than 70% of the time, and scored two goals. Tottenham won by doing as little as possible and gave a cheer to a Liverpool side that feels that this Premiership is very much alive.
