Heung-Min Son’s late strike gave Tottenham a 1-0 win over Manchester City in their Champions League quarter-final first leg, after Sergio Aguero had missed a first-half penalty.  

Manchester City were awarded a spot kick 11 minutes in after a VAR review as Raheem Sterling’s shot hit the arm of Danny Rose, but Hugo Lloris guessed correctly to save Aguero’s effort.

There was concern for Spurs as Harry Kane was forced off having been caught on his troublesome left ankle by Fabian Delph before the hour mark, but the hosts got their goal as Son kept the ball in at the right byline, found a yard on Delph and struck left-footed under Ederson inside the box.

Spurs now take a narrow advantage into the second leg at the Etihad a week on Wednesday, looking to reach their first European Cup semi-final since 1962, while City must come from behind to keep their quadruple hopes alive.
