Mahrez slot in home from penalty spot following Christian Romero ‘possible handball’ to bring City back to the tie but Kane’s header in the sixth minute of added time clinched a league double for Tottenham over City, having beaten them on the opening weekend of the season.
Harry Kane’s winner for Tottenham, timed at 94:25, was the latest winning goal scored against Manchester City in the Premier League since Michael Owen for Manchester United in September 2009 (95:27). Madness.
Forget astonishing! Forget sensational! This is truly psychedelic! Kulusevski is sent scampering into space down the right. He’s onside this time. He reaches the byline and dinks across for Kane, who rises highest and batters a downward header into the bottom right!
The victory over Manchester City makes Tottenham Hotspur the only fourth side ever to complete a league double over a side managed by Man City boss Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola usually has the answer for everything – but not on this occasion and certainly not for Kane.
But this was Tottenham’s day. Having completed a double over such decorated opponents for the first time since the 2015/16 season, this victory breathed life into their Champions League challenge.
