Tottenham forward Dejan Kulusevski’s 90th-minute header denied Manchester City a win in a breathless six-goal thriller at Etihad Stadium.
Late Controversy and Fierce Finish
Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur played out a dramatic draw with a flurry of events, including late controversy, leaving both sides sharing the spoils. Jack Grealish seemed to secure City’s victory, slotting home Erling Haaland’s cross. However, the referee’s decision to blow for a foul on Haaland stirred controversy and led to heated exchanges.
Tottenham initially took the lead through Son Heung-min but had their lead nullified by an own goal from their skipper after Julian Alvarez’s cross. Phil Foden’s goal then put City ahead at halftime in what was an action-packed first half.
Twists and Turns
Giovani Lo Celso’s stunning strike drew Tottenham level in the second half, only for City to capitalize on a Bissouma error, with Grealish netting what seemed to be the winner off Haaland’s assist. However, a late intervention from Kulusevski ensured Tottenham avoided their fourth consecutive league defeat.
Despite the captivating draw, both teams remained close in the standings, with Tottenham at fifth place, three points behind the third-placed champions, Manchester City, marking an intense battle in the Premier League.
