Tottenham’s 0-1 loss to visiting United at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday has made their title chase being jeopardized.
Marcus Rashford’s goal was the only goal of the match despite Tottenham’s efforts to secure at least a point with De Gea making significant saves to dash their hopes.
The victory for United makes the Reds level on points with Arsenal as both teams will now have to slog it out in their next few matches to determine who will hold on to the fifth position.
Spur’s hope of becoming a major contender will be determined today, when City hosts Wolves at the Etihad stadium in a match that will also determine if City will maintain their drum beat of contending for the title.
Spurs could go five points adrift today should City get a victory, making their title race a sort of mirage but will be hoping Wolves will do them a favour.
