Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 Manchester City

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City fought out a thrilling draw in the Barclays Premier League opener.

The home side dominated the first half and City needed some superb saves from England goalkeeper Joe Hart who was given the nod over Shay Given.
Hart produced a succession of world-class stops to deny Jermain Defoe, Tom Huddlestone and Benoit Assou-Ekotto, while Gareth Bale also hit the post.
City improved after the break with Shaun Wright-Phillips having their best chance in an entertaining opener to the new campaign.
