Watch Aleksandar Kolarov’s own goal give Spurs lead vs. Man City

A cross by Danny Rose from the left flank was met by a flailing Kolarov, whose attempted clearance ricocheted past a helpless Claudio Bravo and into the City net for the match’s first goal. They don’t ask how, as they say. We’ll take it.
