23.10.2021 A 12th minute goal put Manchester City ahead at the City Academy Stadium, but Spurs took the points with a fine 3-1 comeback win to end the Light Blues’ 11 month unbeaten Premier League 2 record.

After two 3-4 defeats, when Norwegian Oscar Bobb made some space in the box and found the net, it was an inauspicious start.  However, Spurs started to make inroads into the City defence.  Nile John made a run past three blue shirts from just inside their half and his shot from inside the box had the power taken out of it by a deflection.  With 32 minutes gone, Spurs drew level, after nice work by Harvey White and Yago Santiago released Jack Clarke, who drifted past Rico Lewis and fired a low ball to the near post, where Dilan Markanday got to the ball first to find the net with a neat finish.

Three minutes before the break, the lead swung in Tottenham’s favour, with White and Santiago linking up again to give the Spurs captain the chance to curl it past the keeper from outside the box.  City tried to get an equaliser before the break, but when McAtee looked poised to score, a few yards from goal, Kallum Cesay made a brilliant saving tackle. 

In the second half, Daniel Ogwuru missed three chances before Clarke broke away on the right wing to replicate his cross and Markanday repeated his near post finish.  Both keepers were busy in the closing half hour, with Slicker denying Markanday a hat-trick on two occasions, while Thimothee Lo Tutala produced good saves from McAtee and Bobb to make sure Spurs finished with the points.

23.08.2008
Spurs were pegged back at the death and had to settle for a 3-3 draw with Manchester City at Spurs Lodge.

A third minute Ryan Mason penalty conversion followed by a Danny Rose goal after 47 minutes gave Spurs a good lead, but 2008 FA Youth Cup winners City battled back with two goals inside six minutes to draw the scores level.

With another Rose goal on 70 minutes putting Tottenham into a 3-2 lead, it looked like a shock might be on the cards, but once more the Light Blues showed their resilience by hitting back with just two minutes remaining to take a point.
