Harry Kane focus: Analysing the Tottenham Hotspur striker's performance against Manchester City

Tottenham Hotspur's Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele and Tottenham Hotspur's Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen take part in a training session at Tottenham Hotspur's Enfield Training

Spurs are also unbeaten in the league at home this season and will be looking to build on that impressive record, as they haven't lost a home game since the 2015/16 season in the league.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany delivered a flawless pass to Gabriel Jesus in the 21st minute to break the deadlock.

"We only started to compete after 2-0 down, we scored, but of course over 90 minutes Manchester City were better".

It was a morale-boosting win for City after the disappointment of Tuesday's defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Harry Winks and Danny Rose are doubts for Spurs, as the midfielder is in Qatar for treatment and the left-back has a minor calf complaint.

After just ten minutes of play, Spurs confidence had grown as they gave City a fight with ball possession, and by then, they had reduced the Citizen's dominance in the game to 68%.

Tottenham conceded a goal from a penalty in the Premier League for the first time in 59 games.

"What they lived in the last week was so unfair but they deserve (to win the league) and now we have a match ball".

Against the run of play, Christian Eriksen halved the deficit. Benjamin Mendy is stepping up his recovery but he is a couple of weeks away from first-team action.

City's 3-1 win means they can become champions against Swansea next week.

But they moved within touching distance of the title in the 72nd minute.

Kane at least returned the favour as Eriksen scored in the 42nd minute.

Though the actual contact came outside the box, the referee pointed to the spot with Lloris lucky to stay on the pitch.

Jesus found himself in another one-on-one situation like he did in the early minutes of the game, but this time, he wasted the chance to put City three goals up. Jesus nearly got the third goal but he blasted it in the 63rd minute, both managers made their first changes as Nicolas Otamendi replaced Sane and for Tottenham, Heug min Son was brought in for Erik Lamela.

With 57 caps, Elneny will return to Russian Federation as part of the Egypt World Cup squad this summer and will still be an Arsenal player having extended his contract last month.

The City shot-stopper has been consistently good this year and so just edges out Spurs' Hugo Lloris. It was two up in the game before Paul Pogba inspired a United comeback, scoring twice in the second half of its 3-2 win. Dele Alli nearly got the second goal but he was challenged by a Manchester City defender as the host continued to probe further for their second goal.

Fourth-placed Tottenham were powerless to halt City's revival and a first defeat in 14 league matches shouldn't ruin their bid to qualify for the Champions League.
