Manchester City succumbed to a 2-0 defeat against Tottenham on Saturday to send Jose Mourinho’s side top of the Premier League.
Spurs only had one shot on target in the opening 45 minutes but it was all they needed to take an early lead through Son Heung-Min, who is now the Premier League’s top scorer, before Giovani Lo Celso added their second on 65 minutes.

Poor defending from City on five minutes saw Son left in too much space after a perfectly weighted pass from Tanguy Ndombele. Ederson came out of his goal but Son easily slid the ball under the goalkeeper and into the net.
Harry Kane found the net on 13 minutes for what looked like Spurs’ second of the day but the England international was offside and the goal was quickly discounted.
These early shocks kicked City into gear and they started to put pressure on the Spurs goal.
It seemed like they had got their equaliser on 27 minutes when Gabriel Jesus chested the ball down and took a shot which was deflected into the path of Aymeric Laporte who brilliantly struck the ball into the bottom left corner of the goal.
However, appeals from the Spurs players led referee Mike Dean to check the pitch side monitor for a handball against Jesus. Replays showed the ball had bounced off Jesus’ arm and the goal was disallowed.
Lo Celso replaced Ndombele on 65 minutes and scored Spurs’ second goal with his first touch of the ball.
Kane ran the ball deep into the City half before laying the ball off to Lo Celso on his left. Once again Ederson was caught rushing out of his goal and, like Son before him, Lo Celso calmly slotted the ball through his legs and into the net for his first Premier League goal.
The result sees Spurs overtake Chelsea, who beat Newcastle United 2-0 earlier on Saturday, at the top of Premier League with 20 points from nine games.
