City host West Ham in their last league game, while Arsenal are also at home against Everton. “The tennis players say the serve to win Wimbledon, the last game, is the most difficult one,” City manager Pep Guardiola said. “We know what we’re playing for. The tension is there, the rival is so good. It’s why it is difficult, we know that.”

Haaland fired City ahead in the 51st minute at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when he converted Kevin De Bruyne’s cross from close range.

He struck his second from the penalty spot in the first minute of stoppage time after Pedro Porro had brought down Jeremy Doku.
