Rampant City crush Spurs 4-1 to go 14 points clear

Manchester City produced another virtuoso display to outclass Tottenham and secure a 16th successive Premier League victory as they stretched their lead at the top of the table to 14 points.

Ilkay Gundogan, in for the absent David Silva, headed City in front from a corner after 14 minutes and the only surprise was that it took until 20 minutes before time until man-of-the-match Kevin de Bruyne’s powerful shot extended their advantage.
