Tottenham 1-5 Man City – Citizens Go Top After Mauling 10-Man Lilywhites (Photos & Highlights)

Tottenham Hotspur 1-5 Manchester City – Premier League – 29th January 2014

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City - White Hart Lane

Manchester City moved one point clear of Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table after yet another goalfest against Spurs. Having thrashed the Lilywhites 6-0 at the Etihad earlier in the season, they won this latest meeting 5-1, although Tottenham will feel somewhat aggrieved at some of the decisions by the officials. With City 1-0 up, courtesy of a Sergio Aguero strike, Michael Dawson netted from close-range only to be wrongly adjudged to have been offside.

After the break, Danny Rose saw red for tripping Edin Dzeko in the box, with Yaya Tour√© converting the resulting spot-kick and from that point on, the game was pretty much over. ¬†Dzeko then made it 3-1 before Etienne Capoue got one back for the hosts before forgotten man Stevan Jovetic and then Vincent Kompany rounded off the win. Indeed, the only negative for Manuel Pellegrini’s side was the injury to Aguero which saw him leave the game early on.

City go top while Tottenham stay fifth.

    We need a striker that knows where the back of the net is and a creative midfielder along with a left back. But as usual Mr Levy will leave it too late, that and Mr Baldini wasting most of the Bale money on players that aren’t good enough to make our first eleven. I’m starting to question the board and the deals they’ve been making.

    Give everything to Man City. Great team; some of the best football ive ever seen in this league. However….that linesman should be questioned about what team he supports and why he gave those decisions. I no which hotel hes staying in tonight and should any fans wish to hound him/kill the cunt….message me.

  6. Question: Why does WAATP always refer to Tottenham as “Lilywhites”? I’ve never heard this used before or by anyone else. Surely “Spurs” seems to be a more common nickname. I’m not a Tottenham fan, nor do I live in North London, so maybe you or a reader can shed light on the origin and usage of this name? Thanks!

      @James: Lilywhites is one of Tottenham’s traditional nicknames and is of course a reference to their ‘lilywhite’ kit. We just use it cos we’re old fashioned like that.

      Having formerly worn an all navy blue strip, Spurs adopted their now-famous white kit in 1898 as a tribute to Preston North End (the most prestigious club of the era) but retained the navy shorts – something like that anyway.

  7. @Chris: Yes, I assumed it was a bygone reference to the kit. I’d just never heard them called that before so I imagine it must have fallen out of favour. There used to be a sports shop in Leicester called Lillywhites with two ‘L’s (I think they specialised in cricketwear).

    • Chris says:

      @James: Yeah, we’ve still got one in Nottingham (last time I checked, anyway) but I think they’re owned by Sports Direct these days.
