Manchester City are eight points ahead of city rivals Man United in a draw after beating Tottenham 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium in a match of the 24th round of the Premier League. The difference from Leicester is seven points, but the `foxes` currently have a game more. A goal from a penalty by Rodri (23 `) and consecutive goals by Ilkay Gundogan (50 `;, 66 `) brought the 16th consecutive success of the `citizens` in all tournaments. Thus, the team of Joseph Guardiola took revenge from Tottenham for the two consecutive losses with 0:2. The two teams should meet in April in the final for the `Carabao Cup`.
Joseph Guardiola made two changes compared to the derby with Liverpool a week ago. Aymeric Laporte started instead of Ruben Diaz, who was ill during the week and remained on the bench. Gabriel Jesus replaced Riyad Marez. Sergio Aguero remained among the reserves. Gareth Bale was on Tottenham`s bench despite misunderstandings with Jose Mourinho this week. The Welshman appeared in the game in the second half, when the match was already decided. Jaffet Tanganga started for the first time in a Premier League match this season. Eric Dyer also started for Londoners. The start was no surprise - the hosts launched an attack from the first minute, and the Londoners traditionally accepted the game forecast by livescore soccer in their half. However, the guests were closest to scoring in the first 1/4 hour. In the 14th minute Harry Kane made a good direct free kick, directed the ball to the upper right corner, but it met the crossbar.
In the 21st minute Gundogan received a pass from Jesus in the penalty area, Heuberg did not judge his movement well and put a foot - a penalty for the hosts. Rodri took the lead after Gundogan himself missed an 11-meter penalty kick against Liverpool. Ederson also expressed a desire to execute, after twice in the last week Joseph Guardiola said that he could beat the next penalty. In the end, Rodry did not give him that right. The Spaniard did not execute the penalty very well and Loris reached the ball, but the force of the blow was enough to enter the goal - 1:0.
Three minutes before the break City was very close to the second goal. Sterling broke well on the right, then passed low to Gundogan. The German`s shot was blocked by Sanchez, after which Jesus shot, but the ball hit the top of the crossbar and went out. In the 50th City doubled their lead after a good raid by Stirling in the penalty area, after which the winger released to Gundogan. The German shot from 10 meters, and Loris failed to intervene well. This was Gundogan`s tenth goal in his last 12 Premier League games. In the 66th minute Gungodan put an end to the dispute with his second goal today. He came after an assist by Ederson, who kicked the ball hard forward. Gundogan was left alone against Sanchez, who lost his balance, after which the German shot in the right corner for 3-0. Shortly afterwards, however, Gundogan suffered a groin injury and was replaced by Torres.
A minute before the end, Loris saved Tottenham from a new goal after kicking Stirling close.
