Manchester City 3-0 Tottenham Hotspur: 11 league wins in a row for leaders



Manchester City have been awarded seven penalties in the Premier League this season. Only Leicester City (10) have had more

Ilkay Gundogan scored another two goals as Manchester City beat Tottenham to open up a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

City led through Rodri’s penalty after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg clipped Gundogan.

Midfielder Gundogan added the second with a shot Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris should have done better with.

The German made it 3-0 following an assist by City keeper Ederson, Gundogan holding off Davinson Sanchez to score his sixth goal in five league games.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane hit the post from a free-kick when the game was goalless but this was a comfortable win for Pep Guardiola’s side.

City have won 11 league games in a row and, with 15 matches to go, have a clear lead at the top.

They also have a game in hand on second-placed Leicester City, as Guardiola eyes a third league title since taking charge in 2016.

Tottenham, who face City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on 25 April, have failed to win nine of the past 12 league games.
