Manchester City survived a nervy second-half to beat Tottenham 1-0 at the Etihad and take a step closer to the Premier League title. The Blues will retain the trophy for the first time in their history with victory in each of their four remaining games after Phil Foden netted his first league goal to banish the memory of City's Champions League quarter-final defeat by Spurs on Wednesday night. City started at an electric pace and Foden's goal came after impressive build-up play from Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguer. Spurs were far from out of it, though, and Ederson was quick off his line to deny Mauricio Pochettino's side a leveller. City travel to Old Trafford on Wednesday night for the Manchester Derby against Manchester United in their final game of the season against a member of the top six. We'll have all the fall-out from the Etihad throughout the afternoon. Key Events Player ratings 14:31 Half-time player ratings 13:19 GOAL!

20 April 2019 • 11:43am Auto update On Off 11:43AM Hello! Good not quite afternoon! Welcome to our liveblog for Man City vs Spurs: REVENGE OF THE VAR. VAR isn't in play today so we won't get that incredible drama last seen in the Champions League on Wednesday night but we're sure to be in for a fascinating 90 minutes. Can Man City batter their visitors to get revenge for their European exit? The starting lineups are in and they're pretty much as expected: Well, except for Vincent Janssen who is on the bench. He's been exiled like Luke Skywalker on some abandoned, remote island and now he's back to Force project a goalscoring version of himself into this game like some crazy augmented reality trick. Could it happen? After Wednesday I'd believe anything. Also, Phil Foden starts! Massive game for him. And everyone. Oh and Hugo Lloris isn't playing either. It's going to be absolutely great. … [Read more...] about Manchester City vs Tottenham, Premier League: live score and latest updates

It was one of the greatest Champions League matches in history at the Etihad as Tottenham won a quarter-final thriller on away goals after the tie ended 4-4 on aggregate. Who stood out and who shrunk? Manchester City Ederson 6 Little he could do about Son's sensational brace. Perhaps with nerves shredded after the first 20 minutes, the sweeper-keeper was unusually basic in his distribution. Good block on Son late on, but got his feet wrong for Llorente goal. Kyle Walker 5 Struggled to get forward against his old side, with Moura looking to stretch City, often taking wide positions. Kept it simple in possession and will have been relieved as Sissoko injury forced the Brazilian deeper. Vincent...

Manchester City must overturn a 1-0 deficit in their Champions League quarter final against Tottenham Hotspur tonight. City trail after Son Heung-Min scored the only goal in the first leg last week, and must improve in order to progress tonight. Ajax await in the semi-finals after they knocked out Juventus last night. Pep Guardiola will hope to welcome back Fernandinho, who missed the win at Crystal Palace this weekend, and injury doubt Sergio Aguero. Both trained yesterday alongside Benjamin Mendy, and Guardiola will surely look to involve the trio in his matchday squad if fit. However, Oleksandr Zinchenko did not train and looks set to miss out again. Spurs will be without Harry Kane - who was injured in the first leg - and Dele Alli is a doubt after injuring his hand in the same fixture. The winner of this clash will face Ajax. The Dutch outfit put in an impressive display in Turin to beat Juventus 2-1 and claim a spot in the semi-finals.
