Harry Kane gives Tottenham victory over Manchester City

Harry Kane, who became Tottenham’s all-time goalscorer, gave Spurs a valuable win over Manchester City in the Premier League.

Seldom a fan of Arsenal he will have celebrated a goal from the Tottenham like the one that marked this Sunday Harry Kane. A goal that not only served to make the Englishman the top scorer in history for the ‘Spurs’, but also to beat the Manchester City (1-0) and keep the ‘Sky Blues’ difference at five points with the leader of the Premier League.

Kane, with his 267th goal in a Tottenham shirt, defeated City in north London and prevented Pep Guardiola’s men from taking advantage of Arsenal’s puncture, which fell against Everton this Saturday.

A defeat that allows the ‘Gunners’ to breathe and maintain a five-point lead at the top, with one game less than City, which they experienced on their visit to London and came out scalded.

Guardiola, in the first game after the departure of Joao Cancelo, tried a defense of three central defenders, without wingers, supported by a double pivot made up of Rico Lewis, 18, and Rodri.

The equipment, with this new system, did not work. He left too much space between the lines and allowed Tottenham to run in transition. This, together with a silly mistake by Rodri, was fatal.

After 14 minutes of bland dominance by City, Rodri gave away a ball in the crescent of the area. Hojbjerg only had to control a few meters and hand it over to Kane for him to score a historic goal.

The video scoreboards lit up. “Congratulations, Harry.” Goal number 267 for him, one more than Jimmy Greaves at the top in the history of the ‘Spurs’, and third player in the history of the Premier to reach 200 goals in the competition, after Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney.

The goal was the result of Tottenham’s pressure, which was celebrated by their fans. Every time City had to delay the ball to the goalkeeper or the defense, the public applauded, aware of the good work done.

Guardiola, despite the fact that the plan was failing, refused to change. And neither Haaland nor the rest of the players could turn their individualities into points. Mahrez smashed a volley against the crossbar, Julián Álvarez appeared with deflected shots and De Bruyne, coming off the bench, also proved it.

But the one that was closest to the second was Tottenham, who got tired of missing chances on the counterattack. Harry Kane, if he had been a little more accurate, could have left with a hat trick.

He didn’t need it. Despite playing the last ten minutes with one less, due to expulsion for a double yellow Romero’s ‘Holiday’Tottenham, besieged, held on and took three points that are vital for them in the fight to get into the Champions League and vital for Arsenal to maintain their advantage.

The ‘Spurs’ remain fifth, with 39 points and one more game, one behind Newcastle United, which is fourth; while City continues second, five away from Arsenal and with an income of only three over Manchester United.
