After a difficult first half against the low Spurs block, City found the fault after returning from the locker room. Launched on the right, De Bruyne crossed at ground level for Haaland, alone in the middle to open the scoring (51st). At the hour mark, De Bruyne twisted in pain (57th) but finally continued the game. He was replaced a few minutes later by his compatriot Doku (69th).

The Cityzens trembled in the last minutes with a breakthrough from Heung-Ming Son in front of goal, only stopped by a good exit from Stefan Ortega (85th). Launched alone on the counter-attack, Doku finally forced Tottenham defender Pedro Porro to commit a foul in his area and caused a penalty. Erling Haaland converted the attempt from eleven meters to score a double and a 27th goal in the league this season (90th+1).

This result places Manchester City in a favorable position before the 38th and final day of the championship. The Cityzens are back at the top of the championship and have 88 points, two more than Arsenal. On the last day, Sunday at 5:30 p.m., Manchester City will host West Ham and Arsenal will host Everton. In the event of victory, Guardiola’s men would be champions of England for the fourth year in a row, the fifth in six years and the tenth in their history after 1937, 1968, 2012, 2014, 2018, 2019, 2021, 2022 and 2023.
