Foden scores as Man City beat Spurs to move above Liverpool

EPL By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 20/04/2019

Phil Foden scores the only goal in the Premier League encounter at Etihad Stadium as Manchester City climb on top log table over Liverpool after 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspurs in the early kick-off on Saturday afternoon.

The victory, coming three days after Spurs eliminated City from the Champions League, puts the pressure back on title rivals Liverpool who are at Cardiff City on Sunday and trail by a point with each side having played 34 games.

But City’s win came at a price with key midfielder Kevin De Bruyne forced off with what looked like another knee injury in the 38th minute.

Bernardo Silva created the goal, coasting past two Tottenham defenders before floating a delightful cross to Sergio Agüero who headed back across the face of the goal to Foden to nod in from close range.

It was the first goal in the Premier League for the 18-year-old midfielder, making his second start in the competition.

Son Heung-min twice threatened the City goal but both times City keeper Ederson was out quickly to nullify the danger.

The visitors felt they should have had a penalty in the 59th minute when the ball appeared to hit Kyle Walker’s arm inside the box but referee Michael Oliver waved away the appeal.
