City ease past Huddersfield; Wink saves Spurs blushes

City ease past Huddersfield; Wink saves Spurs blushes

After the intermission, German midfielder Leroy Sane stole the limelight, assisting on City's second goal and then scoring to make it 3-0. It was not the demolition many had predicted but ultimately it was mission accomplished for City, who have now scored 23 goals without reply and not conceded for 386 minutes.

Tottenham is back to nine points behind first-place Liverpool, with 15 games of the campaign remaining. Alli could well be set to join Kane on the sidelines after limping off in the closing stages, but what looked like becoming a nightmare Sunday for Spurs at Craven Cottage was saved at the death by Winks.

Pep Guardiola has refused to be drawn into suggestions the title race between Manchester City and Liverpool could be decided by trips to Old Trafford. First up is Chelsea in the second leg of the English League Cup, with Tottenham protecting a 1-0 lead.

"During the season you have these kind of games", Guardiola said.

With an own-goal and a glaring miss, Fernando Llorente failed his audition to be the short-term replacement for Kane. He is a back-up to Kane and Son, a Plan B because of his aerial threat. Spurs improved after the break and they levelled in the 51st minute, Tim Ream's fluffed clearance allowing Christian Eriksen to float a cross to Alli at the back post for a simple header.

He eventually got up and hobbled to the tunnel.

Manchester City are at something of a disadvantage in terms of fixtures this month, as they continually play later than leaders Liverpool who - if they continue winning their games - will inevitably be further ahead by the time City come to play meaning the pressure is even more increased.

City was perhaps fortunate to lead at halftime, with Danilo's long-range strike only finding the net because of a deflection off the head of Huddersfield defender Christopher Schindler.

There were only 2 matches on Sunday in the Premier League, although both matches featured a top 6 side in need of victory.

He said: "If Liverpool are in front two or three points going to Old Trafford and United are 10 or 12 points behind us, what do you think I am going to think the day before that game?"

Defeat left Fulham seven points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United and facing an increasingly hard task to avoid being relegated back to the Championship.
