PL Summary: Who Can Stop ‘Immovable’ City? Leaders Thrash Spurs For 16th Straight Wins

The question on anyone’s lips at the moment is who can stop City? The Premier League leaders delivered another scintillating performance to beat Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 at home on Saturday.

Goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling (2) sealed a 16th successive win against a struggling Spurs outfit who got their late consolation goal via Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The victory extended their lead at the top of the table to 14 points though nearest challengers Manchester United can cut the deficit back to 11 points with a win at the Hawthorns against West Brom.

Champions Chelsea kept up their faint hopes of usurping City with a 1-0 win over Southampton courtesy Marcos Alonso’s freekick thereby moving level on points with 2nd-placed Manchester United.

Fellow London club Arsenal are back in the top four following their slim 1-0 win over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners had their German playmaker Mesut Ozil to thank after his wonder strike in the first half helped the team to three crucial points.
