Breaking: Arsenal Premier League title hopes dim as Manchester City flog Tottenham, go top

Manchester City took a huge step towards the Premier League title as Erling Haaland’s double clinched a 2-0 win over Tottenham to send them two points above Arsenal ahead of the final day.

In a subdued atmosphere at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Spurs needing a win to keep their top-four hopes alive but knowing a positive result would help their bitter rivals, City went in front when Haaland tapped home Kevin De Bruyne’s cross after half-time.

City’s substitute goalkeeper Stefan Ortega made vital saves from Dejan Kulusevski and Heung-Min Son after replacing Ederson, who reacted furiously when made to come off following a blow to the head, but Haaland sealed the victory from the spot after Pedro Porro had fouled substitute Jeremy Doku.

The victory, City’s eighth in a row in the Premier League, means Pep Guardiola’s side will be champions for an unprecedented fourth year in a row if they beat West Ham at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, with Arsenal needing to win their game at home to Everton while hoping for an unlikely City slip-up.
