Tottenham Hotspurs lost ground on the top 6, were held by a battling Fulham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. This game was ironically one of the few occasions Jose Mourinho’s team had the majority of possession.Even then they only shaved 3% more than Fulham. Jose’s MO is find Kane then Son in the box after feeding from scraps in midfield. Areola keeping the score line 0-0 with a fantastic save from a Son diving header. There was no saving Kane’s diving header from a Reguillon cross though on 25 minutes. Spurs were made to pay for not getting a second goal in the second half, the cottagers equalizing with a header by Ivan Cavaleiro after a sublime cross from Lookman. It was a day for headers.Reguiilon thought he had got the winner but the Spurs players were a little too eager to get the goal.You can count 1,2,3,4 players in an offside position.
At the Etihad, City won 1-0 against relegation battlers Brighton thanks to a Phil Foden goal on 44 minutes. If you would allow me to be the devil’s advocate. Manchester City are barely recognizable from the free scoring, net busting side from 2 years ago when Pep first took over. It looks like they are now content in grinding out results and keeping the clean sheet. Could be the pressure coming from high above to get results and trophies especially Champions league any which way necessary.Please do not tell me the crap about Aguero being injured. In the past they have handled themselves well without him. For all the money they have they can have any striker in the world. Jesus and Sterling are simply not producing the goods. The burden is now left on the likes of Bernardo Silva and Mahrez to get the goals. Back to the game. The crisp passing and counter attacking from City was superb. De Bryune the chief architect. Foden scoring with his right foot which was a bit of a surprise. Brighton were beaten by the better side. If City are to win this league again, they need a finisher.
