London, (UK):- Manchester City closed in on an unprecedented fourth Premier League title thanks to Erling Haaland’s second-half double to beat Tottenham 2-0 on Tuesday.

Haaland fired Pep Guardiola’s team ahead from close range in the 51st minute at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when he converted Kevin De Bruyne’s cross from close range.

Pep Guardiola’s heart was in his mouth when Son Heung-min missed a very good chance late on but minutes later City would get a penalty in the first minute of stoppage time after Pedro Porro had brought down Jeremy Doku.

Haaland stepped up to convert to put the Manchester club on the brink of another Premier League title.

The victory, City’s eighth in a row in the Premier League, means Pep Guardiola’s side will be champions for an unprecedented fourth year in a row if they beat West Ham at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, with Arsenal needing to win their game at home to Everton while hoping for an unlikely City slip-up.
