Manchester City 4-3 Tottenham: Llorente goal sends Spurs into Semi-Finals as Raheem Sterling’s injury-time winner is ruled out by VAR

Tottenham is through to the next stage, but Pochettino did not favor caution. He had plenty of defensive cover on the bench. Yet he chose to introduce a striker, to tinker with the team shape. 32 minutes later, Llorente scores the goal that sent Tottenham through to the Champions League semi-final. Fortune favors the brave; or, to dare is to do, as they like to say in that part of north London.

By the time Llorente scored, City were winning. The tie, and this crazy game. They had laid siege to Tottenham’s goal at half-time Raheem Sterling, and Bernardo Silva both scored but Kevin De-Bryune had been the unlucky one in terms of the goals alto he had a good game in assisting two goals but was unable to convert good chances, Sergio Aguero had to find a way through but Tottenham had other ideas with VAR in their favor.

City has fallen to English opposition at the quarter-final stage two seasons in succession. Yet Tottenham scored three times at the Etihad. It is said their progress underserved in those circumstances.
