Haaland helps Man City put one hand on title vs Spurs as duo explode in angry tantrums


Two touchline tantrums

Ederson and Rodrigo Bentancur both failed to keep a lid on their emotions during the clash for varying reasons, with tensions running high on the night. The latter was furious when he was replaced by Dejan Kulusevski in the 55th minute, launching a water bottle in disgust on the sidelines before studding one of the seats in the dugout.

Ederson was equally infuriated after being substituted off for Ortega between the sticks, booting a bag in tempter as he left the pitchtm. The Brazil international was on the receiving end of a dangerous challenge from Cristian Romero just moments prior, and Guardiola was not keen to take any chances with his goalkeeper.

Gvardiol thriving

It took him some time to get to grips with life at City, but Josko Gvardiol has found his best form at the perfect time in the season for his club. The defender has grown into being the ideal City left-back, proving a force in the final third whilst remaining solid when out of possession. The Croatia international has become one of the first names on the team sheet in recent weeks with his willingness to cut inside but also stay wide and stretch the pitch, and he will only improve next season as well.

Van de Ven left-back struggles

Micky van de Ven has been sensational for Spurs this season, but he struggled playing as a makeshift left-back on Tuesay night. The Dutchman naturally stayed narrow which provided Kyle Walker with acres of space to roam into and plenty of attacks came down the City right-hand side as a result – with Heung-min Son staying forward and not helping out his teammate defensively due to Spurs’ lack of a striker.
