Phil Foden scored his first Premier League goal as Manchester City beat Champions League conquerors Tottenham 1-0 to return to the top of the table.
Four days on from their dramatic quarter-final exit at the hands of Spurs, Foden’s fifth-minute header sealed a priceless victory for Pep Guardiola’s side on an incredibly tense afternoon at the Etihad Stadium.
Heung-Min Son spurned four first-half chances as Spurs threatened to haunt City again, while a handball from Kyle Walker went unpunished midway through the second half.
But City held their nerve, securing a 10th successive league victory that moves them a point clear of title-rivals Liverpool. Spurs remain third, a point clear of Arsenal having played a game more.
