City go third with victory on Wednesday, while Spurs remain outside the Premier League top four for now.
Both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur required wins on Wednesday evening in order to keep the pace with the Premier League's top four — and only one of them pulled it off.
Pep Guardiola's City edged out Brighton and Hove Albion 1-0 at the Etihad courtesy of a fine strike from Phil Foden. Raheem Sterling had the chance to put the score beyond doubt with a stoppage-time penalty at the end, but was unable to convert.
Jose Mourinho's Spurs, on the other hand, fell into the familiar routine of taking the lead before failing to see out the result as they drew 1-1 at home to Fulham.
Harry Kane's first-half power header put Tottenham in front and the visitors had goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to thank that the lead wasn't bigger courtesy of several fantastic one-handed saves.
Substitute Ademola Lookman changed the game upon his arrival, eventually setting up Ivan Cavaleiro for the equaliser and almost teeing up Ruben Loftus-Cheek to win it.
Re-live all of the major action from Wednesday's double-bill below.
Lookman's introduction has completely changed this game. Another burst forward leads to the Charlton academy graduate threading Loftus-Cheek through, but Lloris makes himself big to block the shot with his legs.
This time it's Aurier with the ball in from the other side, but Kane appears to be bamboozled by a slight deflection on the delivery coming in and ends up getting under it, guiding the shot over the bar.
Fantastic ball by Reguilon from the left is powered into the bottom right-hand corner by the head of Harry Kane! Spurs have weathered a good Fulham 15 minutes to turn the momentum around and now they have the lead!
