Tottenham moved to within two points of Premier League leaders Leicester City thanks to a dramatic 2-1 win at Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Striker Harry Kane put Spurs ahead from the penalty spot in the 53rd minute after Raheem Sterling was controversially penalised for handball by referee Mark Clattenburg.

Substitute Kelechi Iheanacho levelled for the home side in the 74th minute, but the Lilywhites earned a fifth league win in a row after Christian Eriksen slotted in seven minutes from full time.

The win left Spurs second in the table and level on points with Arsenal after the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Leicester earlier on Sunday.
