Spurs picked up their first Premier League win against Manchester City since October 2016, which was also a 2-0 victory on home soil (at White Hart Lane).

Manchester City have now lost six games in the Premier League this season; their joint-most in a single campaign under manager Pep Guardiola (six in 2016-17).

Spurs boss José Mourinho picked up his sixth win against Pep Guardiola across all competitions – only Jürgen Klopp has defeated him on more occasions (8). However, Mourinho has now won against Guardiola with four different teams (Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Spurs); the most of any manager.

Manchester City have gone consecutive games without scoring for the first time under Pep Guardiola, having last done so back in March 2016 under Manuel Pellegrini (three games without a goal).

Steven Bergwijn’s opener for Spurs saw him become the 250th player to score on his debut in the Premier League, and the 13th Dutchman to do so.

Since the start of 2016-17, only Jamie Vardy (6) has scored more goals against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City than Spurs’ Son Heung-Min (5) across all competitions.

Manchester City have failed to score four of the last six penalties they have taken across all competitions, with three different players accounting for these failed spot kicks (Gabriel Jesus x2, Sterling and Gündogan).

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has saved three of the last four penalties he has faced in the Premier League – indeed, the Frenchman has now made the joint-most penalty saves for the club in the competition (five – along with Heurelho Gomes).

Oleksandr Zinchenko became the third Manchester City player to be sent off in the Premier League this season – no
