Tottenham fans react on Twitter as Man City drop points at home to Stoke
By Will Butcher
Tottenham fans are ecstatic on Twitter after Manchester City missed the chance to go second following a surprise 0-0 draw against Stoke City on Monday night.
Mark Hughes’ Potters held firm against Pep Guardiola’s side, who failed to find a way past the likes of Ryan Shawcross, Bruno Martins Indi and Lee Grant.
Gaining just a point, City now remain in third on goal difference with the disappointing draw, as Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and Jesus Navas were kept at bay.
City are now in danger of dropping into fourth place, with Liverpool able to leapfrog their rivals into third if they beat Burnley on the weekend.
Tottenham fans reacted on Twitter in delight as they remain in second behind league leaders Chelsea, with many humorously claiming that the 0-0 draw is a bigger result than Barcelona’s wonderful Champions League comeback against Paris Saint-Germain.
