Report: Manchester City 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur 14/02/16

City suffered a second successive home defeat on Sunday as Spurs scored late to steal all 3 points at the Etihad Stadium

Visiting striker Harry Kane fired home from the spot in the second half after Raheem Sterling was controversially penalised for a handball.

Yaya Toure struck a 20-yard free-kick against the bar before teenage substitute Kelechi Iheanacho levelled the scoreline with a fine finish from inside box, assisted by Gael Clichy.

But just as the Blues looked to be building up a head of steam, Christian Eriksen was played through on goal by substitute Erik Lamela to score the deciding goal.

Arsenal’s win over leaders Leicester earlier in the day temporarily moved the Gunners into second place but Spurs have gone back ahead on goal difference, while City still remain in fourth place.
