Manchester City’s Stefan Ortega was the unexpected hero in their 2-0 win at the Tottenham Stadium on Monday night.

The win has brought Pep Guardiola’s side to the brink of a historic fourth consecutive Premier League title.

Ortega became the super sub following Ederson’s concussion during the second half.

Guardiola praised Ortega’s performance, highlighting a crucial save from Heung-min Son that kept City ahead.

“Stefan did his job in showing what an incredible keeper he is,” Guardiola said.

Rodri also commended Ortega’s impact, stating, “Stefan, he saved us. His three saves, I have no words.

“Of course, Eddy was frustrated, but the substitution made sense because he had a concussion.”

Kyle Walker drew parallels between Ortega and German goal tender Manuel Neuer. “He’s got that spread and his big calves came into play.”

Although Haaland sealed the win with a penalty, it was Ortega’s brilliance that was celebrated at full-time.

For Arsenal fans who had expected Tottenham to win or draw the encounter, Ortega’s save is a painful twist in their title hopes.

Meanwhile, Manchester City now need only a win against West Ham to secure the title, leaving Arsenal hoping for a last-minute stumble as they face Everton.
