Champions League: Son Gives Tottenham Slender Advantage Over Man City
Son Heung-min celebrates after scoring against Man City

South Korean striker Son Heung-min struck in the second half to give Tottenham a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

City missed a glorious chance to take the lead in the first half when Hugo Lloris save Sergio Aguero’s penalty and Harry Kane was forced off injured before Son’s strike settled the first European match at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday.

All of the past three meetings with Spurs had gone City’s way but, without Bernardo Silva or Kevin De Bruyne in the starting line-up, they seemed to lack a lot of the spark that has kept them on course for an unprecedented quadruple this season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side were frustrated by Ederson for much of the match, but the Brazil goalkeeper allowed Son’s strike to slide beneath him and leave City trailing ahead of the return leg.

The return leg will come up on the 17th of April at the Etihad Stadium where City will hope to turn things around and remain on course for a historic quadruple.
