Tottenham: Glenn Murray shares caveat from win over Man City

Tottenham: Glenn Murray shares caveat from win over Man City - Premier League News

BBC pundit Glenn Murray has shared one caveat from Tottenham Hotspur‘s crucial 1-0 victory over Man City on Sunday.

The Lowdown: Spurs beat Man City…

Even despite Antonio Conte being absent due to gallbladder removal surgery, Spurs secured a vital win over the Premier League champions to move within one point of the Champions League qualification places.

Assistant manager Cristian Stellini took charge after Conte’s operation and it was the dream outcome, with star striker Harry Kane grabbing Tottenham’s only goal of the game to claim all three points.

The England international surpassed Jimmy Greaves to become the club’s all-time record scorer with 267, putting the icing on the cake of Spurs’ hard-fought result.

The Latest: BBC pundit highlights one caveat…

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live (via BBC Sport), however, Murray highlighted one caveat from a memorable afternoon.

The former Crystal Palace striker reminded supporters that Spurs’ win hugely benefits north London arch-rivals Arsenal, who maintain their five-point lead over City at the summit of the Premier League with a game in hand.

Murray claimed: “I’m not sure Spurs fans will be happy how much this result benefits Arsenal.”

The Verdict: Conte joy…

Tottenham supporters may be slightly miffed at their neighbours seemingly putting one hand on the title after Sunday’s result. However, the win could be a crucial one for Spurs and Conte given their own push for a second successive top-four finish.

There will be little denying Conte’s joy at the result, not to mention the confidence that it could instil in a Spurs squad who are beginning to plug their previously leaky defence.

Tottenham have now shut out the opposition in three of their last five league games, having conceded 25 in 17 before that, and managing to tame the division’s most prolific team is arguably most impressive of them all.

The north Londoners will now be looking to build upon this result and ensure a dream end to the 2022/23 season.
