PLAYER RATINGS: Tottenham 2-0 Manchester City

Tottenham’s title credentials are no longer in doubt after they blew away Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City with a breathless 2-0 victory at White Hart Lane.

City arrived unbeaten and with a perfect six out of six record in the Premier League this season, but Aleksandar Kolarov’s own goal and Dele Alli’s crisp finish gave Spurs an impressive win.

The scoreline would have been more emphatic had Erik Lamela not missed a penalty in the second half but Mauricio Pochettino’s side now move within a point of their opponents in the table and look primed for another title challenge.

  1. Great performance from the boys today. Vertonghen was Toby's equal today and should be rated higher. Eriksen as well deserves more. Son played the false 9 role superbly and Eriksen, lamela and Alli's movement left Man City clueless.
