PHOTOS: Aguero's joy; Soldado's woe - The best images from City 4-1 Spurs

The story of Manchester City's match against Tottenham Hotspur in pictures.

Manchester City defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 on Saturday, with Sergio Aguero netting all four of his side’s goals.

Christian Eriksen briefly put Spurs level but it was to be Aguero’s day, as he single-handedly ensured his side remained within touching-distance of Premier League leaders Chelsea.

There were four penalties in the game, with Aguero converting two, missing another and Tottenham’s Roberto Soldado seeing his spot-kick brilliantly saved by Joe Hart, while the visitors also had league debutant Federico Fazio sent off for bringing the City star down in the area.

The result means Tottenham have plenty of work to do, while City showed they will not give up their league title without a fight.
