The home side took the lead 20 minutes into the game as Sterling traveled off the back of Walker-Peters to nod his effort across Lloris and into the net.
De Bruyne whipped the ball with pace to the back post and the quality of his cross was rewarded as Sterling headed home.
3 minutes later, Lamela pulled Spurs back on level terms. He was afforded space and time between the City midfield and defence, Ederson’s positioning allowed the Tottenham winger to bend his effort beyond his reach into the back of the net to make it 1-1.
But the joy of the North London side was short lived as Aguero scored to restore the lead for the host.
Bernardo Silva and De Bruyne open up Spurs down the right flank. The Belgian fired a low ball into the middle where Aguero made a run across Alderweireld. He clips the ball past Lloris from close range into the left bottom corner.
56 minutes on, Lucas Rodrigues Moura da Silva gets on the score sheet to pull Spurs back for the second time.
An immediate impact from the substitute as he heads in from a corner straight after coming on just 20 seconds to make the scoreline 2-2.
Gabriel Jesus thought he had gotten the winner for City but his strike got chalked off after VAR reviews, much to the dismay of the home crowd.
