Phil Foden scored his first Premier League goal as Manchester City claimed a crucial 1-0 win over Tottenham to regain top spot in the table.
The 18-year-old became City's third-youngest Premier League goalscorer as he headed home after just five minutes of a tense clash with Spurs, three days after their Champions League classic.
The victory took City back above Liverpool, but the downside was another injury to playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, who limped off with what looked like another knee problem before half-time.
The game lacked the goals of the midweek clash, but there was still plenty of incident, with both sides having numerous chances and penalty appeals turned down.
In the end City were grateful to an impressive performance from goalkeeper Ederson, who made two particularly good saves to deny Son Heung-min.
