Spurs under 23’s 2-4 Manchester City: (concise report)

554536B5-3C35-40E3-AC42-4AB80F86C4E0

This game for Wayne Burnett’s side proved to be yet another thriller as Manchester City fought back from two goals down to crush any hopes of a win for Spurs, up in Manchester on Saturday afternoon. On a day of disappointment for Spurs across various levels it was a game which promised so much for Burnett’s talented side. Spurs took a two goal lead inside the opening half hour courtesy of Shayon Harrison’s free kick and then through Kazaiah Sterling’s deflected header. Phil Foden pulled a goal back for the sky blues, and Simon Davies’ side seemed to achieve confidence from that goal, going on to win the second half 4-2 courtesy of a hat trick from striker Lukas Nmecha. A disappointing end to what sounded like a good performance from Spurs, who now sit bottom of the league table. I haven’t been able to find out who assisted Sterling’s goal, but when I do, I will update my statistics. Our development squad travel to Barnet in midweek for the final Checkatrade trophy game, before a visit to east London on the following Monday in the PL2. I will be attending both of those games.
