The Premier League showed its dominance once again with Manchester City's exciting showdown with Tottenham, but there was another competition that caught the attention of the fans.

With the Premier League returning to action after a short break for the FA Cup, the world's most popular club competition reclaimed its spot at the top of the podium for most-watched soccer games in the USA.

And it wasn't your average English top-flight fixture nor your average viewership number as Manchester City's clash with Tottenham on Sunday seized the number one spot with over one million viewers tuning in. To be precise, 1,109,000 people tuned in to watch Harry Kane net the only goal of the game, thus sealing the three points for the North London giants and becoming Spurs' all-time leading scorer.

However, as has been the case for some time, Liga MX captured the attention of soccer fans in the United States, with the next two slots going to games from the Mexican top flight. Tigres UANL, who are currently only a point adrift of the top spot in third, beat Cruz Azul 1-0 in a match watched by 800,000, thus claiming the number two spot on our list.

And finally, we have Queretaro's trip to Guadalajara, with that fixture ending in a 1-1 draw, garnering Telemundo 757,000 viewers. Here is how all soccer games ranked during the past week.
