Report & Ratings: Man City 2-2 Tottenham – 21/01/17

REPORT

Son Heung-Min earned Tottenham a point in controversial circumstances as they came from two goals down to earn a draw against City.

Pep Guardiola’s side, looking to bounce back from a 4-0 loss at Everton, swept into a commanding advantage thanks to two uncharacteristic errors from Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris.

France international Lloris headed an attempted clearance straight at Leroy Sane four minutes after half-time to allow the German a simple finish, then dropped Raheem Sterling’s routine cross straight at Kevin De Bruyne’s feet five minutes later.

Spurs responded swiftly through Dele Alli’s header before they were the beneficiaries of a decision that left Guardiola raging and paved the way for the visitors to scramble a point.

Referee Andre Marriner ignored Kyle Walker’s push on Sterling as he raced into the area – and seconds later Son swept a low finish past Claudio Bravo with 13 minutes left.

The Blues pressed for a winner but were frustrated once more when Brazilian teenager Gabriel Jesus, on his debut as a substitute for Sterling, saw an effort ruled out for offside.

The result means City remain fifth, three points off second-place Tottenham and nine away from leaders Chelsea, who play Hull City on Sunday.
