Result: Man City go top with nervy win over Spurs

Manchester City return to the top of the Premier League table with a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s fixture at the Etihad Stadium. An early goal from Phil Foden has given Manchester City a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium. The match failed to live up to Wednesday’s Champions League classic, but Foden’s fifth-minute header proved to be the difference as City reopened a one-point advantage at the top of the standings. Spurs had their moments as they produced another strong performance, but the North London outfit remain in third place ahead of the weekend’s remaining games.

Tottenham entered the match with a 1-0 advantage from the first leg last week, but a quite stunning match saw City score four on the night. Pep Guardiola‘s side thought that they had netted a decisive fifth in stoppage time when Raheem Sterling finished from inside the box, but the goal was disallowed following a VAR review, allowing Tottenham to advance to the semi-finals on the away-goals rule.

Report: Real Madrid to offer £50m for Kepa Arrizabalaga

Real Madrid are reportedly plotting a £50m move for Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, a year after he joined the Blues in a near-£72m deal. Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga will reportedly be given the chance to return to Spain ahead of next season as Real Madrid are ready to table a £50m bid. The 24-year-old usurped Alisson Becker as the world’s most expensive goalkeeper last summer when joining the Blues in a £71.6m deal from Athletic Bilbao. Kepa has had a mixed first season in English football, which will be best remembered for his refusal to leave the field during Chelsea’s EFL Cup final defeat to Manchester City in February. Despite failing to live up to his price tag, TEAMtalk claims that the Spain international’s reputation remains strong in his homeland a...

However, it took Pep Guardiola‘s side until the 44th minute to double their advantage through Leroy Sane, and despite a string of chances and overwhelming dominance they failed to add a third goal in the second half. City nonetheless climb a point clear of Liverpool at least until ...

Manchester City have kept their quadruple hopes alive by coming from two goals down to beat Championship side Swansea City 3-2 in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. It looked as though Pep Guardiola‘s side’s attempts to scoop all four trophies would end on a rainy evening in South Wales when Swansea took a shock 2-0 lead through a Matt Grimes penalty and a stunning team goal finished off by former City player Bersant Celina. However, Bernardo Silva sparked the comeback 20 minutes from time before a controversial penalty and a late Sergio Aguero winner – neither of which would have stood with the aid of VAR – completed a mem...
