Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Manchester City – Premier League – 21st April 2013

Man City all but surrendered their ailing title defence against Spurs on Sunday, throwing away a one-goal lead late on ultimately lose 3-1.

Samir Nasri had opened the scoring on five minutes and for the majority of the game the visitors looked in control. However, in seven second-half minutes (between 75 and 82 mins), Clint Dempsey, Jermain Defoe and Gareth Bale all netted to give the home side a vital 3-1 win as the visitors collapsed.

Man Utd can now secure the title on Monday against Aston Villa while Spurs go fifth, two points behind third-placed Arsenal, but with a game in hand.

    Thrilling finish from Spurs.

    Have to wonder though, they do rely so much on their select stars & grafters.

    When they’re stripped of the likes of Bale, Defoe & Parker they appear very average.

    Throwing Adebayor upfront all on his tod and hoping for the best is hardly Champions League material.

  2. Matt says:

    Parker?!

    Hmm. Which team doesn’t suffer without their stars?

    Like, say, City without Aguero and Silva?

    Defoe hasn’t played for half the season and Spurs won this game when Parker was replaced, so no idea what you’re going on about
