LIVE
96'
FT: Man City 2-2 Tottenham!!!! What an ending to this game! Moura levelled it up seconds after coming on, and despite City constantly attacking, they couldn't find a way through. Jesus thought he had won it right at the death, but the VAR chalked it off because of a handball by Laporte. That's all from us, thanks for your company and hope to see you again soon!
96'
Otamendi wants a pen at the end and then City hit over!!! Jesus is furious with the referee and the whistle goes, but he has nothing to do with it. Graham Scott, the VAR, just gave the decision. It's the right decision with the new rules.
96'
Sterling is in the area, tries to find a way through and it's a corner.
94'
City again have a late goal v Spurs at home denied by VAR. Pochettino and Guardiola are talking to each other on the touchline.
93'
VAR checking for a possible handball. It touches Laporte's arm and even though it's not deliberate, it influences the move and the goal is taken away!
92'
Gabriel Jesus does it for City!!! What will Aguero be saying now?? The ball hits Laporte from the corner and ball fortuitously breaks for Jesus who takes a touch and then fires home!
92'
De Bruyne gets City a corner!
91'
Spurs sub: Eriksen goes off and Skipp comes on. Just four extra minutes. A bit surprised.

87'
Vital block by Otamendi to stop Moura charging on the counter.

Spurs sub: Lo Celso on for Lamela.

Zinchenko looks to be injured and City have just made their 3rd change.
82'
Moura starts a counter for Spurs, he passes to Lamela, but he takes too long over it and the chance goes.
80'
Man C sub: B Silva off and Mahrez on.
80'
Yet again City send a superb cross across the face of the box!!!
79'

76'
What defence by Otamendi!!!! Moura beats Zinchenko for pace and his cross for Kane is cleared out for a corner.
76'
The home side are running out of time to find a winner here. They are trying, but Spurs are holding firm.

63'
Otamendi heads powerfully towards goal and Rose clears off the line!
62'
Bernardo finds the side netting now, but it was deflected. Corner.
61'
Off the bar!!! Lloris came out and didn't get it as Aguero got there first, the ball broked to B Silva and his looping shot with the outside of his foot struck the bar.
60'
What a save by Lloris to deny Rodrigo!!!! It was from outside the box and the goalie was called into action.
58'
Kane tries to beat Ederson from the halfway line like he did against Juventus, but it doesn't go anywhere near the goal.
56'
And Moura heads home from Lamela's corner!!!! That's what you call an instant impact! You can't score any quicker than that.

Spurs sub: Moura on for Winks
53'
Aguero fires over the crossbar after being played in by Sterling.
51'
De Bruyne hits wide of the target now!

46'
We are back for the second half! Spurs get us going!
45'
HT: Man City 2-1 Tottenham!!! Half-time at the interval in a high tempo first period in which Guardiola's have been far better than their opponents. Sterling gave Man C the lead before Lamela equalised out of the blue shortly afterwards. Aguero restored the home side's lead in the 35th minute and De Bruyne has been amazing. See you in a bit for the rest of this one!
45'
What's Lloris doing??? He's almost dispossessed by De Bruyne! A bit like Ings and Adrian earlier.

Incredible showboating by B Silva on this near touchline!!! Brilliant to watch.
45'
Two added minutes.
44'
Now Zinchenko has a shot!!! Sterling feeds the Ukrainian and his shot is straight at Lloris.
43'
Once again De Bruyne!!!! Bernardo Silva gives it to De Bruyne and Gundogan is unable to find the target from his cross.
40'
Rose is fouled and he takes a free-kick quickly trying to find Kane. However, Ederson anticipates it and comes out to get the ball before Kane can reach it.
37'
Attempts: 10-1, on target: 4-1.
36'
De Bruyne again!!!! He makes Sanchez look useless before firing off target! Once again it was the B Silva and De Bruyne combination.
35'
Sergio Aguero!!!!!! It's 2-1 to the home side!!! B Silva starts it, he plays a one-two before passing to De Bruyne and his cross is turned in by Kun. 2-1 City and Spurs will have to do it again. De Bruyne's passes have been top notch.
33'
City continuing to attack. Not as dominant as they were 0-0, but still definitely on top.

23'
Lamela scores!!!! Unbelievable!!!! Ndombele finds Lamela from midfield and the Argentine hits it to Ederson's right from outside the box and into the corner. That has come out of the blue.
20'
Raheem Sterling scores for Man City!!! B Silva passes for De Bruyne and the Belgian puts a fabulous cross straight for Sterling at the far post. He heads across Lloris and into the far corner. It was coming.
19'
Spurs try to create something again and Ndombele gets himself offside.
16'
First chance for Spurs! Sissoko attacks for the away side and Lamela gets a weak header at the far post. It doesn't even reach the keeper.
14'
Guardiola's side are continuing to attack the away side under plenty of pressure, but they are holding on for now.
11'
Man C want a pen as a home player looked like he was pushed. Rodrigo goes down after being challenged with Lamela and the Spurs man has his hands on him, but the Spaniard was also looking to go to ground.

Corner for the home side. They win another one off that.
9'
Sterling has another go now and Aguero gets in the way!
8'

What a chance for City!!! A brilliant flick on by a City man goes to Kyle Walker, he charges down this near flank and then squares to Sterling whose shot is deflected by Walker-Peters.
6'
Sterling is the recipient of a brilliant long ball, but he's offside.
