Tottenham Hotspur 3 Manchester City 1: match report

Tottenham's Champions League hopes received a huge shot in the arm after they staged a stunning comeback which left Manchester City on the brink of relinquishing their Premier League crown. Former Arsenal man Samir Nasri looked as if he was going to inflict another damaging defeat on Andre Villas-Boas' men when he put City ahead in the first half. Despite the return of Gareth Bale, Spurs struggled to get in to the game. They lacked cohesion and spirit for most of the game, but they scored three goals in eight minutes to claim a famous victory which means Manchester United will win the title tomorrow night if they beat strugglers Aston Villa at home. Clint Dempsey equalised for Spurs before Jermain Defoe marked his return with a goal and Bale rounded off the win with his 23rd goal of the season in the 82nd minute. Roberto Mancini will find the trip back up to Lancashire tonight difficult given that his team dominated the majority of the game.
