Manchester City 1 – 0 Tottenham Hotspur Football Highlights
GOAL : 5′ Philip Foden 1 – 0
What a lovely opening team goal by the hosts as Silva’s delightful chipped ball into the six-yard box picks out the unmarked Aguero. However, the forward decides to head the ball across the box for the equally unmarked Foden to head home from virtually on the line.
What a perfect start for the champions as the youngster scores his first-ever Premier League goal for City, and sixth in total.
