Haaland and Ortega serve the Premier on a platter to Manchester City

Guardiola's Manchester City had neither won nor scored at the Tottenham stadium in the Premier, but at the most important moment, with the title at stake, the cityzens achieved a long-suffering victory thanks to a double from Haaland and three saves from Ortega . The skyblue will be champions for the fourth year in a row, something that no club has achieved, if they beat West Ham on the last day.

The option of reaching the Champions League, already ruled out after the defeat, weighed more for the Londoners than the option of leaving the title on a plate to their eternal rival, Arsenal.

Postecoglou's men, without an iota of speculation, cornered the visitors and took control of the match, although only Bentancur, with a strong shot, put Ederson in trouble in the first half. The best opportunity before the break belonged to City: Højbjerg missed and Foden's shot, from close range, ran into Vicario.

The second half began with one chance on each side, both missed by the goalkeepers. On the other hand, Haaland, from De Bruyne's center, scored unopposed into the net. City then lost Ederson, stunned after a Romero hit, but what seemed like a tragedy turned out to be a blessing.

The substitute Ortega became the hero with two saves against Kulusevski and, above all, after winning a one-on-one against Son. From suffering, City went to euphoria. Porro gave Doku a penalty and Haaland, in added time, scored a goal that tastes like a title.
