Manchester City continued their winning streak on Saturday afternoon, comfortably beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 at the Etihad stadium.
Spurs almost took the lead early on, when Harry Kane rattled the crossbar with a whipped free-kick from the edge of the box. However, it was the Citizens who struck first, when Ilkay Gundogan was brought down in the penalty area and Rodri (alas, not Ederson) stepped up to slot home the spot-kick.
Man City doubled their lead less than five minutes into the second half, when Gundogan rounded off a brilliant attacking move, firing into the near post from a cutting Raheem Sterling pass. The hosts put the game to bed on 66 minutes, when Gundogan bagged his second of the game, bringing the ball down from the stratosphere with a deft touch, and drilling past Hugo Lloris.
Spurs had no answer to the Citizens’ ruthlessness, and Pep Guardiola’s men saw out the final half an hour with ease.
