The first half progression

The match started in an already fiery atmosphere with both the teams getting the chances early in the game. However, Tottenham was more clinical in terms of attacking. Just inside the 2-minute mark Tottenham splits open the City defence. Harry Kane finds Min Son in a wide-open space which allows him to make the run. Luckily, the newly signed Dejan Kulusevski was there to receive the pass from Heung-min Son to slip it between the legs of Joao Cancello.

However, Pep Guardiola's side did not step back as they put an all-out attack but unfortunately they missed all their chances. The city's best chance came at the 20th min mark when Gundogan found space to take a shot which unfortunately hit the post. But surprisingly, it was the same player who got the equaliser at the 33rd-minute mark. Hugo Lloris mistimes the cross from Sterling which lands onto the path of Gundogan, who makes no mistake to make it 1-1.
