Tottenham Hotspur sent themselves top of the Premier League yet again this week with a win over Manchester City in North London.
Liverpool and Leicester City are yet to play this weekend, meaning that Spurs may be knocked off their perch into second by the end of the gameweek.
However, Jose Mourinho’s men made an important statement to the rest of the league as they defended resolutely and countered clinically to defeat Man City 2-0.
Heung-min Son sent the hosts 1-0 up within five minutes when a lovely floated through ball from Tanguy Ndombele sent him through on goal.
Spurs then sat eleven men behind the ball and looked to counter Pep Guardiola’s side at every opportunity, eventually breaking through again in the second half.
Just 35 seconds after coming on, Giovani Lo Celso slotted past Ederson to make it two, leading to some rather funny reactions from rival Premier League fans as they watched Spurs climb to the summit of the table.
Just when you think 2020 can’t get any more weird. We now have Spurs at the top of the league table.

First letting Liverpool win their first title in 30 years and now handing spurs their first in 60 years. This fraud is destroying the life of so many innocent people?#pepout #fraudiola pic.twitter.com/8k0Nb6oLzB

Spurs are not winning the Premier League.
Don’t be fooled, Spurs cannot, I repeat cannot win the Premier league

Must be hard being a spurs fan. They won which is all that matters but on the other I wouldn’t enjoy watching my side playing that style of football at home against a rival club.

And they will still finish the season with no trophies.

Tottenham on top of the table is like an elephant on top of the Tree. No body knows how it got there but everyone surely know it will fall
