It was the kind of performance befitting Spurs’ majestic new stadium, and this remarkably with Spurs’ wage bill still more than £100million lower than City’s.

Indeed, Manchester City outdo Spurs financially in almost all areas – except the bottom line.

Manchester City were strangely disjointed and Tottenham Hotspur were incisive, a brilliant solo goal from the brilliant Son Heung-min giving the North London side a 1-0 first leg lead going into tonight’s game at the Etihad Stadium.

However, Spurs’ wage bill is small change compared to the £259.6million offered by Manchester City during their record-breaking title-winning campaign last season.

Spurs currently have the sixth highest wage bill in the Premier League following that £20million jump, while City are in third place, nearly £40million below leaders Manchester United and within touching distance of Liverpool, following their run to the Champions League final.

For when Spurs quietly published financial results for last season days before the game, they revealed a wage bill across the board of £148million – a 16% rise year-on-year.

Over the past five seasons, Spurs’ pre-tax profits have totalled a little over £320million, an astonishing testament to the club’s ability to keep a lid on costs and maximise the value of player sales while growing revenues.
