GALLERY: FODEN HEADS CITY BACK TO SUMMIT

Spurs 4 Foden goal

Phil Foden’s early header returned City to the top of the Premier League as Pep Guardiola’s side secured a vital 1-0 win over Spurs.


City got off to the perfect start with Foden heading us into a fifth-minute lead at a sun-drenched Etihad.


But despite dominating possession we were unable to force a second and the visitors threatened with a number of chances, leading to a tense finale.


City though held our nerve to secure all three priceless points and return to the top of the table.


The one downside to an otherwise excellent afternoon’s work was the sight of Kevin De Bruyne having to be substituted late on in the first half after the midfielder appeared to pick up a leg injury.
