Tottenham Hotspur beat Manchester City thanks to Harry Kane's record-breaking goal

Harry Kane's record-breaking goal seals Tottenham Hotspur's win over Manchester City


LONDON: On Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur defeated the champions 1-0 thanks to Harry Kane's record-breaking goal. This prevented Manchester City from reducing Arsenal's lead in the Premier League to two points.

With his goal in the 15th minute, Kane broke City's sloppy passing and became the north London club's all-time leading goal scorer with 267, surpassing Jimmy Greaves, who had held the record since 1970.

Despite Saturday's shocking defeat at Everton, Mikel Arteta's team still leads champion City by five points thanks to this goal, which even Arsenal fans would have celebrated down Seven Sisters Road.

A few weeks ago, Tottenham led by two goals at halftime against City, but they gave up and lost 4-2. This time, they held firm despite a late Cristian Romero red card to boost their own hopes of finishing in the top four.

City came close to scoring in first-half stoppage time when Riyad Mahrez's shot hit the underside of the crossbar while Erling Haaland was subdued.

With 45 points from 21 games, City remains in second place, while Arsenal has 50 points from their meeting on February 15 in north London.

With 39 points from 22 games, Tottenham is one point behind Newcastle United, whose manager Antonio Conte was absent due to surgery to remove his gallbladder. Tottenham is fifth with 39 points.

When City made a mess of trying to play out from the back, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg stole the ball from Rico Lewis on the edge of the area and flicked it to Kane, evading a challenge.

Kane was interviewed on the field following the final whistle while fans sang "Harry you're one of own." The song was a reference to the fact that he joined the club when he was 11 years old.

"I wanted to do it at this special place and in front of these amazing fans," she said. "It's quite surreal, a magical feeling to do it in front of the home fans and to win the game."

On the hour, City substituted Kevin De Bruyne for Mahrez. The Belgian shot wide, and Julian Alvarez's fierce effort deflected off the crossbar.

It's very bizarre. It'll take some time for it to sink in.

Regarding City's difficulties with Tottenham, Guardiola stated, "Sooner or later it is going to change, but it is strange we haven't scored one goal." It's hard to find an explanation.

"We are not in a position to think about being champions; just the next game, Aston Villa, we will play our game as best we can and prepare well."
