Tottenham 1-3 Manchester City: 5 things we learned
Guardiola’s team won at Wembley in style, sealing the title after Manchester United lost at West Brom 24 hours later.
Manchester City returned to winning ways after scoring three past Tottenham at Wembley.
They were good value for their 2-0 lead, with Gabriel Jesus scoring the first latching onto a defence-splitting through ball from Vincent Kompany. The second was converted by Ilkay Gundogan from the penalty spot although they were perhaps a little fortunate with replays showing Hugo Lloris had fouled Raheem Sterling outside the box. It was then Tottenham’s turn to ride their luck, after a dangerous challenge from Ben Davies caught Vincent Kompany and only resulted in a yellow card.
Christian Eriksen got one back for Tottenham just before the break, but Manchester City responded well in the second half with a dominant display, creating a number of chances and eventually killing the game in the 72nd minute.
They never would have imagined it happening this way, but Manchester United’s 0-1 home loss to West Brom the following day had City crowned Champions.
