Manchester City moved back to the top of the table with a 1-0 victory over Tottenham thanks to Phil Foden‘s first Premier League goal.
This was the third meeting between the two sides in the past 10 days after the dramatic double-header in the Champions League quarterfinals, which saw Tottenham progress on away goals after City had seen a stoppage time goal overturned by the video assistant referee.
And City looked hungry for revenge at the Etihad as they came running out of the blocks and took the lead early.
There was a major blow for Pep Guardiola’s men just before half-time when Kevin De Bruyne had to leave the pitch with another injury after reacting badly to taking a shot from the edge of the area.
City held on to return to the summit — a point clear of Liverpool — while defeat left Tottenham just three points clear of sixth place Manchester United, who have a game in hand.
