Manchester City are just one step away from the title. The teammates of Erling Haaland, twice scorer this Tuesday evening against Tottenham (0-2), managed to pocket the three points necessary to return to the top of the Premier League standings. The Citizens leave Hotspur Stadium, where they had never won in 4 matches, with one certainty: they are masters of their destiny.

Manchester City takes a big step towards the league title. Winners 2 goals to 0 from Tottenham this evening in a late match of the 34th day of the Premier League, the Cityzens regained the lead of the championship from Arsenal (86 points) with 2 lengths ahead of the Gunners now relegated to second place in the ranking. Erling Haaland (51st, 90th) scored twice in the second half.

In full force for this possibly decisive match in the race for the title of champion of England, Nathan Aké and Jack Grealish making their return to the Skyblues group, Manchester City has long seemed paralyzed by the stakes on the pitch of a Tottenham Hotspur Stadium unusually silent on this Tuesday evening. Technically clumsy and well contained by the intense pressure exerted by Spurs, Pep Guardiola’s men had to wait until the locker room returned to finally get into working order.

HAALAND TAKEN CARE OF EVERYTHING

Having come close to opening the scoring for the first time after the break through Kevin De Bruyne (46th), the Cityzens finally cracked the Tottenham rearguard thanks to their giant Erling Haaland (51st, 0- 1) the Norwegian cyborg concluding with the flat of his foot a magnificent collective action by his partners Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne. Ahead of the mark, the Mancunian machine did not regain its usual fluidity, the fault of a valiant Spurs team not really determined to make the task easier for their evening host.

Returning in the second half to try to energize a London attack that was a little too passive, Dejan Kulusevski (70th, 80th) twice almost brought his team back to the level of the Cityzens. But that was without counting on a huge Stefan Ortega, the German goalkeeper (called to replace Ederson who was taken out preventively by his coach after a huge buffer with Romero) showing himself a decisive third time on a point-blank strike from Heug-Min His (85th). Tottenham missed their chance. City won’t make the same mistake. A fast rush from incoming Jérémy Doku offered a second goal (on a penalty) to the hero of the evening Erling Haaland (90th, 0-2). A twenty-sixth achievement by the Norwegian giant may be synonymous with a title for City, who are now two points ahead of their runner-up Arsenal.
