(Dan Tri) – Although striker Erling Haaland scored twice in Man City’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham, it was goalkeeper Stefan Ortega who was highly praised by coach Pep Guardiola.

`Ortega saved the game, otherwise Arsenal would have won the championship, that’s the reality. That was a save for the whole season,` coach Pep Guardiola expressed after Man City’s victory over Tottenham with a score of 2-0 in the match.

After an inconclusive first half, Man City broke the deadlock thanks to striker Erling Haaland’s close-range cushion to open the score.

In the 86th minute, Akanji made a mistake when he dangerously lost the ball, creating conditions for Son Heung Min to face substitute goalkeeper Ortega (before that, goalkeeper Ederson had a strong collision with his head and had to be replaced).

Not taking advantage of the opportunity to equalize, Tottenham paid the price when they had to concede the second goal on Haaland’s penalty spot in the 90th minute, when Doku was fouled in the penalty area.

`In one-on-one situations, he is one of the best goalkeepers I have seen in my life. He is very reliable.

An amazing decision by our goalkeeper coach (Xabi Mancisidor) to bring him back,` coach Pep Guardiola praised goalkeeper Ortega for his landmark save to win the Premier League title this season.

Midfielder Rodri also praised the German goalkeeper after the victory: `Stefan is really great. If we had drawn, we would have been eliminated from the title race. He is so excellent. We are leading.`

Stefan basically saved us.

Despite an important victory against Tottenham, coach Pep Guardiola still expressed caution as he still has to go through the final match to compete for the championship with Arsenal.

`The players cannot celebrate yet. We are happy, relieved, because we had the advantage going into the final match. We know that we still have work to do in front of West Ham and the fans.`

Now we will prepare for the match against West Ham.

As I said, to win Wimbledon, the serve to seal victory is the most difficult for tennis players.

In the final round of the Premier League, Man City will welcome West Ham at Etihad’s home field, while Arsenal will face Everton.
