London - Manchester City have responded to officially losing their Premier League title by beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 through Sergio Aguero's goal to cement second place on Sunday.

The Argentina striker took his league-high tally to 22 goals by finishing off a classic counterattack in the 29th minute, running onto David Silva's pass and sending a rising shot inside the near post.

City has recovered from a slump to win its last three matches and virtually guarantee a place in the Champions League next season.

The team is provisionally three points ahead of third-place Arsenal, whose first of two games in hand is at Hull on Monday.

City kicked off at White Hart Lane less than an hour after being replaced as English champions by Chelsea.
