CITY HITS YET ANOTHER SPEED BUMP

FOLLOWING A HOME DEFEAT LAST WEEK, MANCHESTER CITY SUFFERS YET ANOTHER SETBACK AT THE HANDS OF TOTTENHAM

Kevin de Bruyne angled in an effort to put leaders City in front before Eric Dier equalized with a 25-yard shot slightly before half-time.

Toby Alderweireld then moved Spurs up front with a brilliant header from an Erik Lamela free-kick.

After that, Kane side-footed in when team-mate Christian Eriksen’s free-kick came back off the woodwork before Lamela slid home as the visitors chased the game.

THINGS ARE GETTING HAIRY FOR CITY

City had won five league games in succession before losing to Juventus in their opening Champions League match of the season 11 days ago.

Defeat by the Italian champions appears to have knocked them out of their stride, and Manuel Pellegrini’s side have now lost three of their past four matches.

Injuries to key players have not helped, with goalkeeper Joe Hart on the bench at Spurs because of a back injury which meant he only trained for one day before the game.

Caballero, his deputy, was caught out when he came for Lamela’s free-kick and allowed Alderweireld to put the hosts 2-1 up.

Like Hart, City skipper Vincent Kompany was also missing, while midfielder Toure injured a hamstring to add to Pellegrini’s problems.
