Former Manchester City youngster Eirik Johansen regrets watching Tottenham Hotspur game

The New York player got up early to catch the game yesterday.

Tottenham Hotspur took on Manchester City in the Premier League yesterday and were comfortable 4-1 winners in a surprising result.

Goals from Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane and Erik Lamela did the trick for Spurs who romped home in some style, and luck.

Tottenham scored two goals that certainly benefitted from bad decisions by the linesman.

Kyle Walker was offside by a mile when he delivered the cross that eventually led to Dier’s long-range strike. Kane’s goal was also offside. The England international strayed off before Christian Eriksen struck his free-kick off the bar.

Of course City fans were not happy with the result – including a former Manchester City youngster.

Norwegian youngster Eirik Johansen was with City for seven years but never featured for the club. This summer he was sent out to sister club New York City FC on a free transfer and is currently on loan in the United Soccer League with Wilminton Hammerheads.

He got up early yesterday to watch the game, but was left regretting it…

Of course City’s goal from Kevin De Bruyne was also a question mark in regards to an offside and Tottenham were full deserving of the win.
