MANCHESTER City 2-3 TOTTENHAM
Manchester City came into the game 9 points clear and in a much better form than a Tottenham side that had lost three straight league matches. We wondered if a ‘cornered’ Tottenham had it in them to do a league double on Manchester City, and they did just that.
A goal from a penalty spot in the final added minutes looked to have rescued Manchester City from a losing position against Tottenham but Dejan Kulusevski and Harry Kane had other plans. Dejan Kulusevski scored in the 4th minute to get Tottenham an early lead, Harry Kane restored the lead after Ilkay Gundogan had canceled it, Kulusevski and Harry Kane combined for the game-winning goal in the fifth minute of the final added minutes after Riyad Maherz had evened the scored through a penalty kick in the second minute of added time.

LEEDS 2- 4 MANCHESTER UNITED: The best Leeds United could do was score one more and concede one less goal than they did in the opening round against Manchester United. Manchester United grabbed a 4-2 win away from home.
Leeds United made things exciting in the second half when they recovered a 2- goal deficit within a minute. Rodrigo and Raphinha scored in the 53rd and 54th minute [respectively] to cancel the first-half lead that goals from Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes had given Manchester United. Fred restored Manchester United’s lead in the 70th minute; giving them the winning goal. Anthony Flanagan ensured the win for United with his goal in the 88th minute.
