RED CARD! Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 Manchester City

(60′ mins): If the audience thought the half-time cuppa would settle the nerves, they were wrong. Lloris and Japhet Tanganga collided – Toby Alderweireld cleared off the line as Aguero pounced. Then Riyad Mahrez diverted over an open goal after City recycled and probed again. Beautiful game? It was becoming more pantomime than Broadway – the natives were again restless.

The madness continued. Oleksandr Zinchenko checked Harry Winks as the Spurs man raced forward – whistler Dean was quick to brandish a second yellow card for the City man.
