Spurs all over City like a fast growing fungus. How did they not score?
A clinic in superb goalkeeping by Joe Hart keeps City alive against Spurs. Jermain Defoe Gareth Bale, Tom Huddlestone, and Benoit Assou Ekotto were turned away by some spectacular saves. Then the upright and Vincent Kompany saved two more attempts.
Bale was brought down by Micah Richards for a legitimate penalty shout but Andre Marriner waived it away.
I have never seen Carlos Tevez play so deep. He looks like the creative midfielder that City lack. But the Argentinian is also playing with no other striker as Shaun Wright Philips and David Silva occupy the outside positions.
Will Spurs regret not converting their almost half a dozen chances? The second half unfolds.
