Again the line of @ManCity being magnificent and the opposition being poor, is increasingly blurred. Or is that what they do to teams?— Geoff Shreeves (@GeoffShreeves) December 16, 2017

74' PENALTY! but Gabriel misses from the spot!
Incredible counter attack from City as De Bruyne, who has played most of the match in central midfield, finds himself on the wing - switching places with Sane.
The Belgian darts forward after receiving the ball and hits a thundering strike past Lloris who cannot control the shot.
63' Spurs' movement has been better and Ederson has been the one keep the visitors score at zero. Any one on the bench for Poch to bring on to change the match?
Moussa Sissoko, Fernando Llorente, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela all on the bench...
Ederson has got a better passing range than some Premier League midfielders.— Tom Williams (@tomwfootball) December 16, 2017

Should have been a red card for Kane (City v Spurs) 53 min— Dr Errol Sweeney (@dr_errol) December 16, 2017

Last time I saw a boot that high here, Mane got sent off. Don't think Otamendi will see red though— James Robson (@JamesRobsonMEN) December 16, 2017

33' De Bruyne making things happen here for City.
A joy to watch.
26' All City now as Lloris is once again brought into the match as he punches away an effort from Gundogan.
23' Aguero chooses power over accuracy and laces a strike towards Lloris, who then palms it away only for it to land in front of Sterling. The wingers rebound attempt flies over the crossbar.
Relief for Spurs.
Good one just put the light blues on a driving seat from a set piece, this Manchester City is ruthless.— Marks Maponyane (@MarksMaponyane) December 16, 2017

9' The first of many tackles predicted between Rose and Sterling.
Rose the culprit this time around.
MAN CITY 4-1 SPURS
Full time at the Etihad as City extend their lead at the top of the table. Spurs were no match for the Cityzens as they completely outplayed the North Londoners. Can anyone stop them?
GOAL, SPURS, ERIKSEN! 4-1: Eriksen hits a low drive into the bottom corner to give Tottenham something to hold onto
GOAL, MAN CITY, STERLING! 4-0: Sterling piles on the misery for Spurs as he passes the ball into an empty net. Comical defending from Dier
Lloris saves acrobatically to keep Sterling from adding his second and City's fourth
Foden replaces Gundogan and Alli is replaced by Sissoko as both managers make changes
City are unbeaten for a record 15 league games, Spurs have won back to back but can they stop Guardiola's rampant side
GOAL, MAN CITY, STERLING! 3-0: Finally Sterling puts one away after Sane puts it on a plate for him
Winks has a great chance to pull one back for Spurs after good work from Lamela but he takes too long over the ball and the chance subsides
Missed! Jesus' penalty hits the post and the rebound is skied inexplicably over by Sterling
Penalty to City! Vertonghen downs De Bruyne. Jesus to take..
GOAL, MAN CITY, DE BRUYNE! 2-0: Spurs are caught up field and Gundogan finds De Bruyne who fires a venomous strike with his left foot which bursts through Lloris' outstretched hand
Another Spurs player in the book as Alli's studs dig into De Bruyne's ankle
Sane jinks past two before forcing Lloris into a good save which falls to Sterling who is in an offside position
Son has a pot at goal on his weaker foot but it is high and not so handsome
Dembele has been threatening to get a card all game and finally Craig Pawson obliges and gets out his yellow
Jesus cannot sort his feet out and Lloris smothers. Rose then goes up the other end and fires his shot over the top. End to end stuff at the Etihad
Ederson travels sharply to his right to stop Kane's long range bullet
Pawson gets the yellow card out again, this time for Kane's naughty challenge on Sterling
Delph sees himself in the book after a rash challenge on Trippier
Son has an early half chance from Kane's cross but Sane snuffs it out
Craig Pawson blows his whistles to signal the start of the second half
HALF TIME: MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS
Half time at the Etihad which sees City lead through an unlikely source in Gundogan. City have carved Spurs open on a number of occasions but failed to beat Lloris a second time
Alli takes a nasty tumble as he is confronted legally by Ederson. City break up the other end and Aguero's shot is blocked by Rose
Aguero fluffs his shot but the linesman saves his blushes
Alli fouls Gundogan to provide City with a prime position to double the lead. De Bruyne delivers but it is repelled by the Spurs' defense
Otamendi has no argument with a yellow card as he kicks Kane in the face. Relief for the City man
Kane gives City a reminder of what can happen if they give him a chance as he curls one just wide of Ederson's goal
Aguero strikes one wide from the edge of the box with his left foot
Trippier is receiving some attention after a robust Delph challenge. He looks like he will continue
Aguero has a half chance from a Sane cross but Rose does well to block
Gundogan almost has a second as his placed effort is saved low down by Lloris
Ederson plays it to Sane who is in space. He finds Aguero who stings the palms of Lloris and Sterling fires the rebound over
Winks has an option to slip in Son but instead plays it wide to Rose who crosses straight to Ederson
Rose has a little push in the back of Mangala but the referee waves away the appeals
GOAL, MAN CITY, GUNDOGAN! 1-0: Sane's corner kick finds an unmarked Gundogan who nods home easily
Eriksen finds Kane in the box but his header loops wide of goal
Sane glides past Trippier as if he was not there but Lloris and Dier block the ball across the face
Great ball down the flank by De Bruyne looking for Sterling but Lloris reads it well
Dembele's turn now as he has a go at his Belgian colleague, De Bruyne. Fiery start
Early ticking off for Fernandinho as he fouls Dembele
Kick off at the Etihad as Aguero plays the ball back
Spurs XI: Lloris, Trippier, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose, Dembele, Winks, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Kane
Man City XI: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Mangala, Delph, Fernandinho, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Sane, Sterling, Aguero
