Manchester City Edge Closer To Premier League Title With Tottenham Win

Manchester City have moved closer to sealing the Premier League title after they recorded an impressive 3-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium in a Matchday 33 clash played on Saturday night.

Pep Guardiola’s side raced into a two-goal lead in three first half minutes courtesy goals from Gabriel Jesus and IIkay Gundogan (controversial penalty after Hugo Lloris fouled Raheem Sterling).

The hosts fought back just before halftime with Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen reducing the deficit for his side but that turned out to be a consolation after Sterling scored in the second half to wrap up the win for the table toppers.

Manchester City (87 points) are now one win away from clinching the league title with 5 league games left and they could win it tomorrow If city rivals and nearest challengers Manchester United (71 points) suffer a shock loss to basement club West Brom at Old Trafford in their league game on Sunday evening.
