    THE LONDON FOOTBALL TEAM, TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR, WENT TO THE TOP OF THE FIRST DIVISION IN THE ENGLISH FOOTBALL LEAGUE TODAY (SATURDAY) WHEN THEY BEAT MANCHESTER CITY AT THE MAINE ROAD GROUND IN MANCHESTER BY TWO GOALS TO ONE. 'SPURS NOW HAVE 17 POINTS FORM 11 MATCHES AND ARE ONE POINT AHEAD OF STOKE, CHELSEA AND LEICESTER.

    THE FIRST GOAL CAME IN THE 20TH MINUTE OF PLAY FROM A FOUR-MAN OFFENSIVE COMBINATION BY TOTTENHAM. GREAVES WEAVED HIS WAY DOWN THE CENTRE, PASSED TO MULLERY, WHO LOBBED THE BALL TO ROBERTSON ON THE RIGHT WING. ROBERTSON RETURNED THE BALL TO THE GOALMOUTH, WHERE THE SCOTTISH INTERNATIONAL, ALAN GILZEAN, HEADED IT PAST THE MANCHESTER CITY GOALKEEPER, DOWD.

    MANCHESTER CITY'S EQUALIZER CAME 20 MINUTES LATER FROM SUMMERBEE. FOR THE THIRD TIME IN AS MANY MINUTES, THE SPURS DEFENCE WAS PENETRATED AND THIS TIME THERE WAS NO HOLDING SUMMERBEE, WHO DROVE THE BALL INTO THE NET UNDER THE BODY OF JENNINGS, THE GOALKEEPER.

    AFTER HALF-TIME, TOTTENHAM CONTINUED ON THE ATTACK UNTIL, WITH ABOUT 30 MINUTES TO GO, GILZEAN SCORED HIS SECOND GOAL TO GIVE TOTTENHAM A 2-1 LEAD. FROM THEN ON, SPURS CONCENTRATED ON A DEFENCE WHICH MANCHESTER CITY WERE UNABLE TO OVERCOME.
