Key moments and action zones from City 3-2 Spurs

Manchester City overcame a gritty Spurs side on Sunday night to solidy their pole position in the English Premier League.

Quick reactions from the game

David Silva is the most important player for City right now. He was the dangerman, and Spurs did not pay him special attention in the first half. Nasri’s goal was their punishment.

Gareth Bale is quickly becoming an equally crucial cog in the Spurs setup. He stood out as the one man who could take the game to City and his brilliant curling effort was proof of his quality. Last season, he was brilliant in patches and perhaps not worthy of the adulation he received. But this season, he has earned it.

The commentators chose to focus on the Lescott issue and Balotell’s unsuccessful stamp on Parker. Those incidents were not irrelevant, but the game should not be remembered only because of those incidents. There was a lot of good football in and around that.

The centrebacks had a difficult time in the match. Savic gifted a goal to Defoe, while Ledley King’s slow reactions late-on gifted City the winning penalty.
