Man City Routs Tottenham 4-1, Extends Record Winning Streak to 16 Games

MANCHESTER, England – Manchester City trounced Tottenham 4-1 on Saturday to extend its record winning streak in the Premier League to 16 straight games.

The Citizens grabbed the lead less than a quarter-hour into the match at Etihad Stadium when German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan scored on a header off a corner kick in the 14th minute.

Despite the deficit, Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was arguably the man of the match in the first half, as his heroics stymied Sergio Aguero in a one-on-on opportunity and also kept a strike from Gundogan from finding the back of the net.

In the second half, Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne showed his toughness by limping off a hard challenge in the 68th minute by Dele Alli, who picked up a yellow card on the play, and then finishing off a remarkable counterattack two minutes later to give Man City a 2-0 lead.

The game was all but over at that juncture, but the Citizens tacked on two more goals on a pair of strikes by Raheem Sterling in the 80th and 90th minutes.

Tottenham, for its part, finally got on the board with a powerful left-footed stoppage-time goal from the edge of the box by Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Manchester City, which had set the record for the longest-ever winning streak in the 129-year history of the Premier League with a 4-0 rout of Swansea in its previous match on Wednesday, now has 52 points with 18 matches played.

The Citizens’ nearest challenger, crosstown rival Manchester United, has 38 points but can close the gap to 11 points with a road win Sunday against West Bromwich Albion.

Tottenham is currently in seventh place with 31 points.

In other Premier League action Saturday, third-placed Chelsea defeated Southampton 1-0, fourth-placed Arsenal topped Newcastle United 1-0 and fifth-placed Burnley stumbled to a 0-0 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion.

West Ham United routed Stoke City 3-0, while Huddersfield Town crushed Watford 4-1.
