Spurs Battle to Secure Draw Against Man City in Six-Goal Thriller
Manchester City was stunned by Tottenham in a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Etihad on Sunday. Ange Postecoglou, the Tottenham manager, insisted on relentless attacking football despite facing City with a mounting injury crisis. Spurs captain Son Heung-min scored at both ends inside the opening 10 minutes. Phil Foden put City in front before half-time, and Giovani Lo Celso levelled 20 minutes from time. Jack Grealish restored the home side’s lead, only for Dejan Kulusevski’s header to secure the draw. City drop to third in the table, three points behind leaders Arsenal, while Tottenham moves into fifth place. Postecoglou stated, “We were lucky to be in it by half-time. City could have blown us away in that period.” Tottenham started the second game without a recognized center-back, and City should have scored multiple goals before half-time. However, City allowed Tottenham’s makeshift defense some respite, and Lo Celso fired in off the post for his second goal in as many games. Kulusevski then timed his run perfectly to head in Brennan Johnson’s cross, ending the game in a draw. On the other hand, City’s punishment did not end there as yellow cards for Rodri and Grealish mean they will be suspended on Wednesday for a trip to an Aston Villa side that has won 13 consecutive home Premier League games.
