((HT: SkySports/PremierLeague/youtube))

A lot of people looked at the end of the Week 22 table gave soccer fans two huge games: the first was Tottenham at Etihad against Man City.

The first half was a bore, but the second was back-and-forth excitement with four goals in a little over 9 minutes. Two goals by City gave the impression that Spurs were in trouble. But they came back with two of their own.

Here's the Gareth Bale goal that tied the game at 2...

But it all came down to Mario Balotelli, who really should not have been on the field after stomping a Spurs player, netting a PK in extra time for the 3-2 win to put City six points clear.

Game two gives us Arsenal against ManU- more on that as it develops...
A goal by Danny Welbeck for United in the 81st minute gave the visitors a 2-1 win at the Emirates over the Gunners.

Goals by Valencia and van Persie tied the game at ones by the 71st minute. So, at the end of the day, Man City's lead is back to three points as the teams have a nine-day break before resuming play.

Here's Welbeck game-winner...
