Manchester City vs Tottenham, Highlights, English Premier League 2019: City draw after being denied late winner by VAR
  • A rare setback in a near impeccable season from City came in April with a dramatic exit to Spurs in the Champions League quarter-final.

FT | City 2 - 2 Tottenham

It ends all level, and Pep Guardiola will be feeling cheated at the moment. We've only had a couple of weeks of action, but VAR is already the hot topic, and it made its presence felt yet again. Mauricio Pochettino will be happy with the point though, because by all rights, it's an absolute smash and grab.

93' | City 2 - 2 Tottenham

Deja vu at the Etihad, as a last-gasp winner is cruelly denied to Manchester City by the VAR gods. A glancing touch from Aymeric Laporte's hand rules out a Gabriel Jesus goal in extra time.

84' | City 2 - 2 Tottenham

A bit of a delay in proceedings, as Manchester City full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko goes down with a thigh problem. During the stoppage, Tottenham bring on Giovani Lo Celso, who will add another dimension to their attack in the final ten minutes or so.

66' | City 2 - 2 Tottenham

A bit of handbags here, as Pep Guardiola and Sergio Aguero get into a brief screaming contest on the sidelines, after the Argentine striker is replaced by Gabriel Jesus. Our hearts go out to the journalist conducting Guardiola's post-match interview, you have a real storm coming your way.

63' | City 2 - 2 Tottenham

Manchester City are turning it up a notch! After conceding from yet another suckerpunch, the defending champions have unleashed their inner Super Saiyan, and poor Hugo Lloris is going to wake up a bit bruised and battered tomorrow.

56' | City 2 - 2 Tottenham

Lucas Moura drags Tottenham back onto level-footing! It's his first touch, 27 seconds after coming off the bench, and just Tottenham's second shot on goal, but they're level, and that's all that counts. This match is bringing the drama!

54' | City 2 - 1 Tottenham

Hugo Lloris is taking some serious fire at the moment! The French goalkeeper has been peppered with shots from what now looks like a Manchester City front six. City could have this wrapped up with a bow on it come the hour mark. 

Preview: Tottenham Hotspur ended Manchester City’s European ambitions last season and they will be looking to dent Pep Guardiola’s side’s hopes of winning a third successive Premier League title when they meet at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

A rare setback in a near impeccable season from City came in April with a dramatic exit to Spurs in the Champions League quarter-final.

City won the second-leg 4-3 but went out on away goals after a late goal from Raheem Sterling, which would have sent City through, was dramatically ruled out for offside following a VAR video review.

Just three days later the pair met again in the league as Guardiola’s side kept their title run on track with a 1-0 victory.

Both Mauricio Pochettino and Pep Guardiola will be looking to add to their team's opening weekend victories. Reuters

Both teams began their Premier League campaigns in winning fashion with City sweeping aside West Ham United with a 5-0 win at London Stadium while Spurs struggled before emerging as 3-1 victors at home to promoted Aston Villa.

City will be relieved that Spurs’ South Korean winger Son Heung-min will miss the game while he serves a three-game suspension.

Son scored the only goal of the Champions League first leg and struck twice in the second-leg but Harry Kane, who missed the last two meetings, has begun the season in form with a double against Villa.
