Manchester City are on the verge of their fourth consecutive Premier League title after a dramatic 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in a strange and tense atmosphere.

The game was overshadowed by the implications for the title race, with Spurs needing a result to dent Arsenal’s hopes. This led to a unique atmosphere at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with a mix of resignation and hope among the home fans.

Despite the unusual circumstances, Spurs put in a spirited performance, even trying to take the lead in the early stages. However, City’s experience and cutting edge shone through in the second half helped them getting three points.

Erling Haaland scored twice, including a penalty after a missed opportunity by Son Heung-min that could have changed the course of the game.

The win puts City in a strong position to claim the title. They need just a home win against West Ham to secure the championship. However, Arsenal fans can still dream, with a slim hope that City could slip up on the final day.
