Jack Grealish sent an eight-word message after Manchester City claimed a win over Tottenham Hotspur.

City claimed a 2-0 victory over Spurs on Tuesday night thanks to a second-half brace from Erling Haaland. The win moves City back above Arsenal to the top of the Premier League table, two points clear going into Sunday's season finale against West Ham.

Pep Guardiola's side only need to match Arsenal's result against Everton in order to win the league title for a fourth consecutive season. A win against the Hammers could confirm the title for City regardless of how the Gunners get on against Everton.

Grealish did not feature against Spurs on Tuesday but was an unused substitute for the clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as he made his return from illness. The England international posted a message on social media as City edge closer to winning the league title.

"What a team. What a club. One more," wrote Grealish on his Instagram story.

During the win over Tottenham, Guardiola was forced to make another change at goalkeeper with Ederson substituted in the second half following a head injury. Stefan Ortega was introduced to the game, and made several important saves to deny Son Heung-Min and Dejan Kulusevski.

Spurs star James Maddison went on to praise Ortega for the saves he made during his cameo during the game. Maddison was particularly impressed with Ortega being seemingly unaffected by being introduced to the game as a substitute.

"We still had some big moments even when we were [1-0] down," Maddison told Tottenham's club media.

"Sonny’s [Son] one is probably the highlight of our chances but [it was] a fantastic save to be fair to the ‘keeper [Ortega], who has come on as a sub and produced a couple of good saves actually.

"There was one with Deki [Kulusevski] down there which it looked like he got on top of, which could have squeezed in. So credit to the goalkeeper because it’s not easy to come on and do that when you’re cold."
