Spurs 2-0 Man City: Mourinho's boys put out a five-star perfomance to top the league

A stunning performance by Spurs and brilliant defending by Jose Mourinho's men has earned the London club a big win against Manchester City, a result that sees them move to the top of the league.

The match started off in favor of the home side who were on the front leg, and their decent performance was rewarded by a super Son Heung-Min goal.

The visitors tried to hit back and they even had the ball in the back of the net by Gabriel Jesus, but it was disallowed but VAR, with the striker having handled the ball before burying it in the back of the net.

With Kun Aguero and Raheem Sterling benched, Guardiola had Jesus, Mahrez, and Ferran leading his line, and even though he brought the two attackers later on, Mourinho's brilliant addition of Giovani Lo Celso to the fray was enough to seal the three points for the hosts, as the substitute netted just minutes after coming on.

The match ended with City having the majority of shots on target, but the Lilywhitws defense stood still and Hugo Lloris in goal was rarely tested.

Guardiola was visibly frustrated on the touchline and if looks could be turned into goals, the Cityzens would have won.

Nothing seemed to be working for the side from Manchester and their worrying start to the season goes on.
