Manchester: Manchester City gave away a two-goal lead to draw with second place Tottenham Hotspur 2-2 on Sunday in their Premier league match at the Etihad stadium.
With a pair of aberrant errors early in the second half by French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, Spurs gifted 2 goals to City’s Leroy Sane and Kevin De Bruyne.

City deserved the lead after stellar performances in the first half as Pep Guardiola’s men tested Mauricio Pochettino’s side several times.
It was England midfielder Dele Alli who pulled one back for Spurs in the 58th minute as the vivacious game started to swung back into their favour.
Guardiola’s men ran out of luck eventually in the second half as debutant Gabriel Jesus was denied his first City goal by the offside flag.
Raheem Sterling was pushed by Kyle Walker in the penalty area but referee Andre Marriner failed to point to the spot and within a minute Son Heung equalised for Tottenham in the 77th minute.
“We played very good, we missed a lot of chances and when this happens, you cannot win,”
Pep Guardiola told BT Sport.
“It’s what has happened all season. We create more, concede a few,” Pep added.
Pochettino’s men completed their comeback but a point will do a little for both sides as Chelsea can now go nine points clear after already seeing Liverpool, Manchester United dropping points.
