The big game on Sunday witnessed a fierce battle between Manchester City, long lost in the title race against Liverpool, and Spurs, who are fighting for a spot in the top four.
The desperation of both the sides for the valuable three points made the match entertaining and eventful from the start to the last whistle.
Tottenham stole the match from City with the help of two late goals from Steven Bergwijn and Son Heung-min after the hour mark, following City’s reduction to 10 men after Oleksandr Zinchenko was given his marching orders.
Spurs fans inside the stadium would have loved the way Harry Winks celebrated the red card received by Zinchenko in the 60th minute of the match.
The Ukrainian was fined for his shoulder challenge on Winks, who was in the midst of a classy run towards the goal. It was a not-so-serious tackle, but the referee showed a second yellow to the City man.
Winks, exalted by the occurrence, punched the air and celebrated it like a goal, just like any passionate Spurs fan would do.

The red card became the turning point of the match as debutant Bergwijn scored after two minutes and Son struck the second for Spurs at the 71st minute.
The zealousness exhibited by Winks would have impressed the Spurs fans to a great extent as the moment brought to light his genuineness and dedication towards the club.
He was as passionate as any other Spurs supporter. Moreover, the sheer display of passion did not go to waste as Spurs struck their first blow of the match two minutes later. It was as if Winks foresaw the victory that was about to be theirs.
