Tottenham vs Man City LIVE: Score, team news, commentary and updates – BBC Sport

Manchester City almost relied on the muscle memory that made them consistent champions to overcome a lackluster performance to create what looks set to be another Premier League title.

Guardiola’s side were nowhere near their best but clicked on autopilot when the pressure peaked to get the job done and leave Arsenal, the closest chasing team, ahead a bitter disappointment.

Inevitably, it was Haaland and De Bruyne who provided the smooth link to break the deadlock, with the striker left with the simplest of chances.

Deputy goalkeeper Ortega then showed his quality once again, notably with a crucial save from Son, who ran clear into the position he relishes.

Ortega made such an important stop that Guardiola threw himself onto the turf in relief.

Haaland’s penalty wrapped up the three points, leaving the City supporters in jubilant celebration at the final whistle, knowing their side were now in a position they have become so familiar with and one of who are rarely wrong.

Arsenal must hope that West Ham can somehow pull off a shock on Sunday as the Gunners focus on beating Everton at the Emirates Stadium.
