Riyad Mahrez struck twice as Manchester City staged a stunning fightback to reignite their title hopes with a 4-2 win over Tottenham.
Spurs scored twice in the final minutes of the first half through Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal, shocking the Premier League champions at the Etihad Stadium. faced with the prospect of trailing leaders Arsenal by eight points and having played a game more, Pep Guardiola’s side roused themselves after the break.
The influential Mahrez secured victory with a double after Julian Alvarez pulled one back and Erling Haaland restored parity with his first goal in four games.
The comeback prevented City from suffering a third consecutive defeat in all competitions and will almost certainly have left Arsenal lamenting their opponents’ inability to land another blow on the champions.
