Spurs fans react to City loss on Twitter: 'Top four? No chance'

Danny Rose Tottenham warmup

Tottenham Hotspur supporters were left to ponder 'what if' on social media last night, after coming unstuck against Manchester City.

Tottenham Hotspur lost ground in the race for fourth place in the Premier League as, the evening after Liverpool slaughtered local rivals Everton by a 4-0 scoreline to move four points adrift of third place Chelsea with a total haul of 46 from 23 match-days, Spurs were thrashed by Manchester City and now have Manchester United breathing down their necks.

For the Lilywhites, it may feel like a low blow as some of the club's fan-base were seen commenting on Twitter about how the decisions of the referee made a tough match even more arduous as full back Danny Rose was sent for an early bath despite seemingly gaining success in the challenge and winning the ball.

Yaya Toure converted the penalty on the 51st minute to put City 2-0 up while Spurs were one man down. From there, Eden Dzeko added to Toure and Sergio Aguero's earlier goals, before Etienne Capoue scored a consolation effort. Like they have done all season, City showed no mercy, with Steven Jovetic and Vincent Kompany completing the rout.

Can Spurs still achieve a top four finish?
