Kranjcar brace sees off City

Published Add your comment

Niko Kranjcar and Jermain Defoe were on the scoresheet to get Tottenham back to winning ways and frustrate Manchester City 3-0 at White Hart Lane in the clash of the Champions League hopefuls.

The Spurs pair struck either side of half-time in the Barclays Premier League game for a first win since the 9-1 demolition of Wigan nearly a month ago, with Kranjcar rounding off the victory with his second of the night in injury-time.

City only needed to avoid defeat to go on their best unbeaten run since 1977 - but far too many of those games ended in draws and this defeat further dents their top-four aspirations.
