Manchester City moves top of Premier League with 5-1 thrashing of Tottenham

January 29, 2014 - 2:34 PM

LONDON - Manchester City used another rampant scoring display to replace Arsenal at the top of the Premier League with a 5-1 win at Tottenham on Wednesday, while Chelsea lost ground in the title race with a 0-0 draw against West Ham.

After beating Spurs 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium, Manuel Pellegrini's side was unstoppable at White Hart Lane too and extended its unbeaten run to 20 matches.

City received a decisive boost when Danny Rose was sent off for tripping Edin Dzeko. Yaya Toure converted the penalty before Dzeko made it 3-0. Etienne Capoue's pulled one back but Stevan Jovetic and Vincent Kompany added gloss to victory.

City now leads Arsenal by one point, with Chelsea lagging three points behind. Elsewhere, Sunderland beat Stoke 1-0 and Aston Villa defeated West Bromwich Albion 4-3.
