In the key match of the 14th round of the English Premier League, Manchester City hosted Tottenham. The teams approached this match separated by just three points in the league table.

The match kicked off with a performance from Son Heung-Min. The Korean first completed a blistering counter-attack for his team, then inadvertently redirected the ball into his own net after a free-kick from Julian Alvarez. City dominated the first half, while Tottenham aimed to counter effectively. In the 31st minute, a splendid combination between Doku, Alvarez, and Foden saw Foden outplay Víctor Vícaro from close range.

Tottenham unexpectedly equalized in the middle of the second half. The "Spurs" intercepted the ball in the center of the field and set up Lo Celso in a striking position. The Argentine didn't falter, firing accurately into the bottom corner of Ederson's goal.

The hosts threw all their might to snatch a victory and finally succeeded in the 81st minute. Jack Grealish delivered an excellent strike from outside the box. However, ten minutes later, Kulusevski played for an advantage, leveling the score once more.

An unusual incident occurred a minute before the final whistle. Tottenham players committed a foul in the center of the field, yet Holland passed to Grealish, who could have had a chance at the guests' goal. The referee initially allowed play to continue but eventually awarded the foul. Manchester players argued for a while, but it led to nothing.
