Tottenham earn their spurs with Champions League qualification

A goal seven minutes from time sent Tottenham into the Champions League at the expense of Manchester City who they beat 1-0 at Eastlands. Spurs fully deserved their win after creating the better chances against a City team who quickly ran out of ideas after a bright opening.

During City's brief period of dominance Heurelho Gomes saved well from Adam Johnson and prevented a Gareth Bale own goal but gradually the visitor's got back into the game and eventually made their pressure count.

Peter Crouch had already missed an earlier sitter from eight yards but made no mistake heading home Younes Kaboul's cross from close range.

For Manchester City, the richest club in the world, it was a salutary lesson to their Middle East owner that money alone does not make a successful football team and cast doubts over the future of boss Roberto Mancini.
