I'll leave you with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Daniel Taylor game report. Thanks for reading and emailing. Goodbye!
In more annoying news for Manchester City, Liverpool beat Porto 2-0 at Anfield in the other game of the evening. That gives Liverpool some breathing space to welcome, although the draw is not over yet.
It was not a crazy selection of Pep Guardiola – training was nothing out of the ordinary – but some of his individual choices did not come out. Fabian Delph and Riyad Mahrez failed to justify their inclusions and Leroy Sane and Kevin de Bruyne were lost. Guardiola needs to get it right next week. The city probably still gets the second hand as favorites – they should be more than capable of reversing a 1×0 deficit at home – but Guardiola's teams are known to fail in this type of position before.
Son Heung-min speaks! "As a team we never gave up. We Fight. It was a very difficult game, but we deserve to win and we were more clinical than them. I like this stadium. It's so incredible to play here. I am very grateful to have these teammates and those great fans. We did well and we fought well and the next 90 minutes are out. We'll fight together.
Hugo Lloris speaks! "It's a great game. As expected, the crowd pushed us to the end. Of course it was very difficult, but we rode. Hopefully [Harry Kane’s injury] it's not so bad. You know the feeling when one of your best players falls in love. But we grew strong and Lucas brought new energy. I do not know [about the VAR award for City’s penalty]. I did not see it. It's part of the game, we have to accept that. We do not award the penalty. We stayed in the game and it gave us more energy. "
This was a strange game. It was decent at times, very uncomfortable in others, and a goal seemed unlikely for long periods. Especially when Tottenham lost Harry Kane for yet another ankle injury. But when it looked like Manchester City was showing off, Son Heung-min beat Tottenham 1-0 to take Etihad Stadium next Wednesday. City will need to be better in the second leg and Pep Guardiola will have to present a better tactical plan than they did here. It did not really work for the city tonight. They did not create much after Hugo Lloris saved Sergio Aguero's penalty.
90 min + 6: De Bruyne is free kick of Lloris. Not far, though. But Fernandino heads for the bar. AND…
90 min + 5: Wanyama fouls Sane on the left. One last chance for the city.
90 min + 4: De Bruyne escapes from the right, but his low cross is too close to Lloris.
90 min + 3: All the machinations going through Guardiola's head now. I can not wait to see what he's coming next week. A man in the back. Ederson in front. Arteta from the midfield. Claudio Bravo on the goal.
90 min: It happened again: an idiot came on the field. He is being booed by the crowd. The game needs to be stopped. Expect UEFA to punish Tottenham for this.
89 min: Leroy Sane replaces Riyad Mahrez, a replacement that should have happened 89 minutes ago. David Silva also makes way for Kevin de Bruyne.
87 min: Fernando Llorente replaces Dele Alli, who will not play Fortnite for a while if this is a serious injury to the wrist. Then Spurs attack again, Eriksen choosing son, who shoots wide.
86 min: His Alli has a wrist injury. Fernando Llorente will replace him.
84 min: Mauricio Pochettino is a brilliant manager. That is all.
82 min: The goal came against the current of the game, although the city did not create clear chances tonight. They calmed down in the attack and missed Kevin de Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, while Tottenham defended very well.
81 min: 723 years after the goal has been scored, the game continues. Victor Wanyama replaced Harry Winks to give the Spurs more steel in midfield.
The goal is! And it's the right decision. Christian Eriksen caught City with a smart pass over Son, who was left alone by Delph. Son could not control at first, but he only managed to keep the ball before leaving for a goal kick. From there, he turned, turned to the left foot and, with Delph still not close enough for him and too busy calling for offside, crushes a powerful low kick underneath Ederson! The Spurs fan erupts! Son, who scored the first goal at this stadium last week, did it again!
They are taking a look to see if the son was disabled …
GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Manchester City (Son, 78 min)
Looks like it was nothing serious.
77 min: Son has just received treatment after going down. Tottenham can not afford to lose him. I hope it's nothing serious.
76 min: Silva enters the Tottenham area. The space momentarily opens to him, but his shot is blocked. Then Walker descends to the right and makes a cross against Rose. There is another call for handball. Nothing is doing this time.
75 min: The cross of Mahrez is surmounted by Gabriel Jesus, although the last touch may have left Vertonghen. Tottenham are starting to back down.
73 min: Delph, who is being booed by the Spurs fans, with a width of 25 yards.
72 min: "I think the initial exits went from Delph to Kane as soon as the tackle happened," says John Painter. "I saw the first one in a replay that shortened."
71 min: "The insolent and audacious Fernandinho," says Alex Alfonso. "Surely there's a place for him in shithousery starting eleven?"
69 min: Delph and Pochettino are still arguing. It is the unhappiness of Delph that he spends most of the second half alongside Pochettino, prowling around his technical area.
68 min: This has become a dirty, nasty and boring game. You feel that Tottenham need more of the goal; that they need a lead to take Etihad next week. City will return to win 0-0 at home, even if they love to score an away goal.
