The game kicked off with Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg orchestrating a promising opportunity, delivering a cross-field pass to Brennan Johnson, whose setup for Rodrigo Bentancur was thwarted by Ederson’s acrobatics.

City responded with a close call of their own as Phil Foden’s volley was denied by Guglielmo Vicario after Hojbjerg’s miscued clearance.

Bernardo Silva came close to breaking the deadlock, only for his effort to be cleared off the line by Radu Dragusin, with a subsequent offside call against Foden halting City’s celebrations.

After halftime, Kevin De Bruyne tested Vicario with a low drive before Tottenham’s Son Heung-min was denied by Ederson’s quick reflexes.

City eventually seized the lead through Erling Haaland, who tapped in De Bruyne’s delivery, marking their 79th shot at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before finding the net.

Tottenham pressed for an equalizer, with Dejan Kulusevski’s attempt thwarted by Stefan Ortega, who replaced the injured Ederson.

In the dying moments, Tottenham missed a crucial opportunity as Manuel Akanji was dispossessed, only for Ortega to deny Son’s attempt.

City secured victory and potentially the title when Jeremy Doku was brought down in the box, leading to a penalty converted by Haaland.

As stoppage time concluded, City’s place at the top of the table was confirmed, setting the stage for an exciting final matchday.
