Haaland double puts Man City on verge of title as Arsenal fans rue Son miss

0

TOTTENHAM supporters hailed Erling Haaland for virtually wrecking Arsenal’s title dreams – as Son Heung-min refused to help out Mikel Arteta.

Plenty of Spurs fans headed to White Hart Lane hoping to see their team lose because of the implications it would have on where the Premier League trophy ends up.

And Haaland’s double – the first a tap-in from a cute Kevin De Bruyne pass – ensured it looks set to stay in its seemingly permanent residence at the Etihad rather than return to North London after 20 years away.

The Norwegian could not miss when the ball was put on a plate for him by his masterful creator – prompting wild celebrations in the away end, and a few ironic cheers in the home end.

For all the talk of Tottenham fans not wanting to win, Guglielmo Vicario clearly did not get the message with a pair of top saves to deny Phil Foden and De Buryne.

Defender Radu Dragusin was on the same wavelength, too, as he produced a superb headed clearance off the line on the stroke of half-time.

However, City’s first Premier League goal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium six minutes after half-time deflated the faint hopes of Arsenal supporters desperate for a favour from their bitter rivals.

And it was ultimately buried for good when Son Heung-min wasted his glorious chance to equalise.

Clean through on goal, the South Korean found no way past sub goalkeeper Stefan Ortega on 85 minutes.

And when Jeremy Doku turned Pedro Porro inside the area, the referee pointed to the spot and Haaland made no mistake.

He smashed the ball into the top corner emphatically and the City celebrations said it all – they are on the brink of a fourth title in a row.

Over to David Moyes’ Hammers to help out the Gunners on Sunday afternoon…
