Tottenham player ratings vs Man City – Dragusin and Bentancur impress as Son misses huge chance

Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-0 to Manchester City despite a good performance in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.

Spurs faced Pep Guardiola’s in-form side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, knowing that two wins from their remaining two matches would require Aston Villa to win their final game at in-form Crystal Palace in order to stop Postecoglou’s side . to finish fourth and qualify for the Champions League,

There was also another side to things: while a City win would take the visitors closer to winning the Premier League trophy for a fourth consecutive year, a Spurs triumph or draw would hand the initiative to their northern rival from London, Arsenal, on the last day. .

Postecoglou was without Yves Bissouma for the final two games of the campaign due to a knee injury, while Richarlison’s calf problem also meant his season was over. The Australian brought in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur as well as Radu Dragusin with Pape Matar Sarr playing a sort of false nine.

The hosts played well for much of the first hour of the match but found themselves behind when Kevin De Bruyne fired a low ball across the penalty area for Erling Haaland to head home.

Tottenham had further chances, including a big one when Son Heung-min escaped, but it was City who doubled their lead when Pedro Porro brought down Jeremy Doku in the Spurs box and Haaland buried the resulting penalty.
