    Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur played out a thrilling draw at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

    Raheem Sterling gave the hosts the lead on 20 minutes after converting an excellent Kevin de Bruyne assist.

    The England forward produced a well-guided header to send the ball past Hugo Lloris and into the Spurs goal.

    Despite Man City dominating the early stages of the game, Erik Lamela curled a shot past Ederson three minutes later to bring Spurs level.

    Sergio Aguero made it 2-1 when he smartly tucked away another de Bruyne assist before Lucas Moura scored with his very first touch after coming on as a substitute just before the hour mark.

    The little Brazilian rose above everyone to make an immediate impact and head the ball into the net.

    Manchester City thought they had won the match late on as Gabriel Jesus sent the stadium into delirium with a last gasp strike.

    However, replays showed a handball by Man City defender Aymeric Laporte in the build-up, which meant the goal was dramatically ruled out by VAR.
