Man City youngsters beat 10-man Tottenham

Tottenham’s development side lost 2-1 to Manchester City at White Hart Lane, where the hosts played most of the match with 10 men.

Javairo Dilrosun gave the visitors an early lead, Ryan Loft was sent off and Paolo Fernandes made it 2-0 before Shayon Harrison pulled a goal back with a late penalty.

In an entertaining game, Spurs’ Anthony Georgiou hit the woodwork and Alfie Whiteman saved a penalty from Fernandes.

Dilrosun gave City the perfect start by slotting home on six minutes after latching on to Fernandes’ ball over the top.

And worse followed for Spurs on 25 minutes when Loft was given a straight red card for a challenge on Rodney Kongolo.

But they battled on and Georgiou blasted against the bar before Whiteman kept out Fernandes’ spot-kick following Joe Muscatt’s foul on Demeaco Duhaney in the final minute of the first half.

But Fernandes did find the net 10 minutes into the second period with a thumping strike which doubled City’s lead.

With nine minutes remaining, Harrison tucked away his penalty after James Horsfield had fouled Georgiou.
