Spurs Topple Manchester City

Spurs Topple Manchester City

A decisive game between 2nd placed Spurs and 4th place City was irretrievably affected by a diabolical decision by referee Mark Clattenburg. Clattenburg adjudged that Raheem Sterling had hand balled the ball when replays show the ball struck his back first and then ricocheted up off his elbow. Sterling had his back to the ball and it was clearly non-intentional. Harry Kane confidently tucked away the penalty on the 53rd minute. City had chances prior to that, with Aguero missing …

Arsenal took on heavyweights Manchester City at The Emirates in a tight display last night. Man City dominated the first ten minutes with an absolutely glorious chance spurned by Kevin DeBruyne to square the ball to David Silva for a certain goal on 6minutes.

Statistical Comparison of The Top Playmakers

Statistical Comparison of The Top Playmakers
