Manchester City entertained Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium earlier this afternoon as they looked to earn maximum points at home. The Mancunian giants made a poor start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the fourth minute when Dejan Kulusevski scored for Spurs. However, Ilkay Gundogan equalised for Man City in the 33rd minute with a good finish from close range. Both sides went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.

Harry Kane found the back of the net in the 59th minute which was canceled out by Riyad Mahrez’s penalty in injury-time. It was Kane who dramatically scored again in the fifth minute of injury-time to win the game for Tottenham. The match ended with Man City suffering a poor 3-2 loss in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each Man City player performed during the clash against Spurs.

GK: Ederson – 6/10

The Brazilian keeper made a couple of solid saves but ended up conceding three times this evening.

RB: Kyle Walker – 6/10

Walker struggled to get into the flow of the game and produced a disjointed display in the opposition half.

CB: Ruben Dias – 6/10

He was strong in the air but struggled to cope with Harry Kane’s threat during the game.

CB: Aymeric Laporte – 6.5/10

The Spaniard showed some fight on the defensive end of the field and made two good chances going forward.
