Man City 4 – Tottenham 3
Tottenham are through to the Champions League semifinals following an epic match at Man City.
Four goals flew into the net in the first 11 minutes, while Raheem Sterling had City 3-2 up in the 21st.
Fernando Llorente was the unlikely hero for Tottenham scoring the decisive goal in the 73rd.
That’s after Sergio Aguero had put City in control of the tie just before the hour mark.
Pep Guardiola’s Tottenham, Harry Kane quote
How did Tottenham shock Man City?
Incredibly the north Londoners achieved their success with a squad riddled with injuries.
Moussa Sissoko suffered a groin problem on Wednesday night which could see the midfielder sidelined for a while.
Eric Dier, Erik Lamela, Harry Winks and Serge Aurier all miss the City match through injury.
While, of course, Harry Kane was absent after his ankle ligament injury sustained in the first leg.
Indeed, after the full-time whistle, many recalled a quote from Pep Guardiola regarding Tottenham and Kane.
18 months ago, October 2017, Guardiola called Tottenham a “Harry Kane team”. He said:
We have United [and] the Harry Kane team who scores every game two or three goals.
Q: Are Tottenham still the 'Harry Kane team'?
A: No, I cannot say that, Mauricio [Pochettino] will be angry again with me! #MCFC boss Pep Guardiola explained how his comment earlier in the season was misunderstood – and why Kane is "incredible" for #THFC pic.twitter.com/hrPTO8l1AJ
