Manchester City climbed to third place in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Manager Josep Guardiola's team was 1-0 too strong for Brighton & Hove Albion at home.

Tottenham Hotspur stayed home against Fulham at 1-1.

Phil Foden scored the only goal at the Etihad Stadium.

The young Englishman outwitted Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sánchez with a low shot just before half time.

In the second half, City failed to expand the margin.

Bernardo Silva hit the post on behalf of the home team fifteen minutes after the break and Raheem Sterling missed a penalty kick in injury time.

Nathan Aké was missing at City due to a muscle injury.

At Brighton, Joël Veltman completed the ninety minutes and Davy Pröpper was replaced halfway through the second half.

Thanks to the win, Manchester City is now four points behind league-leader Manchester United, which won at Burnley (0-1) on Tuesday, and one point behind number two Liverpool.

In addition, 'The Citizens' have played a match less than the two title competitors.

Tottenham loses the lead against Fulham

Tottenham Hotspur missed the opportunity to come in a shared third place next to Manchester City.

The team of trainer José Mourinho gave away a lead at home against low flyer Fulham: 1-1.

With his eleventh goal of the season, Harry Kane broke the spell for Tottenham after 25 minutes.

With a flying header, he worked a cross from left back Sergio Reguilón behind Fulham goalkeeper Alphonse Aréola.

Fulham, where Kenny Tete was in the starting line-up and Terence Kongolo remained on the bench, came alongside fifteen minutes before the end via a header from Ivan Cavaleiro.

Tottenham seemed to still take the win via Reguilón, but his goal was rejected due to offside.
