Manchester City hit with title blow following a 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur

Steven Bergwijn marked his Tottenham Hotspur debut with a superb volley as Tottenham won 2-0 against 10-man Manchester City to boost their top-four hopes.

The result saw Tottenham move fifth on the Premier League table, four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, while City remains second, 22 points behind leaders Liverpool who can win the title on 21 March when they play Crystal Palace.

Bergwijn’s goal came with Spurs’ first shot on target after Oleksandr Zinchenko had been dismissed for a second yellow card and City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan had seen a first-half penalty saved by Hugo Lloris.

Son Heung-Min doubled Spurs’ lead with just their second shot of the game to seal a valuable win for Jose Mourinho’s side.

City though were reduced to 10 men after the break, with Ukrainian Zinchenko receiving his marching orders for a foul on Harry Winks.
