Spurs beat Manchester City 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium to register what was arguably their most impressive result of the season so far.

Some Spurs fans on social media were absolutely overjoyed at the grit and determination the players showed to get the better of their opponents.

Although Jose Mourinho named what seemed to be quite an attacking side, it was backs to the walls stuff for the Lilywhites for the majority of the first half.

The away side monopolised possession and fashioned a few good opportunities but Tottenham defended resolutely for the most part.

Things changed when Oleksandr Zinchenko was given his marching orders midway into the second half after picking up his second yellow and Spurs certainly made their numerical advantage count.

Debutant Steven Bergwijn opened the scoring with a stunning finish before Son Heung-min added a second to put the game beyond the visitors’ reach.

Some Spurs fans were particularly excited with Bergwijn’s contribution on his first game for the club. Here’s how they reacted to the performance and the result:

The most impressive part of that performance was the defensive solidarity we showed. The more time Mourinho and his coaching staff have had on the training ground, the more disciplined we have become defensively. Given time, hopefully, we start to click better going forward as well.

  1. I think we are kidding ourselves a little if we don’t recognise that there was a large element of fortune involved in our win today in which in all honesty a proportionately dominant City drew a resounding blank. Don’t get me wrong here I think there were some great individual performances here from the likes of Lloris, Tanganga, Winks and Lo Celso along with two great goals to put the illustrious Mancunian’s to bed but we kind of road our luck as well if truth be told. Of course it was great to see Bergwijn hit a sublime finish on his home debut for Tottenham’s first – though I thought he was pretty quiet overall – but what really impressed me however was Ndombele’s immediate impact and his definitive role in setting up Son for the second. I seriously believe Ndombele could be instrumental in driving Tottenham forward fitness sustaining in much the same way both Modric and Dembele did before him, he has all the attributes at his disposal. As for Man City who will clearly rue missed opportunities, I think the penalty call was somewhat outrageous given the time it took to overturn the Mike dean’s initial decision: and that replays seem to clearly demonstrate that Aurier touched the ball away from Aguerio’s feet during the duel between attacker and defender, and please lets not even get started on Raheem Sterling’s tepid appeal for a further penalty on the back of Gundogan’s rather fitting miss, as the off form English forward should arguably have seen red for his career threatening challenge on Dele much earlier in the game. I simply do not understand VARS inability to actually call the correct decision once properly reviewed? And once again its lack of reliability will be the topic of unease and concern amongst football’s faithfull. I suppose there are many may well argue that Zinchenko’s two yellows and subsequent red card, led to a change in Tottenham’s fortunes but there are undoubtedly overwhelming issues at the heart of Man Cities defensive that has resulted in a stark decline from being clear champions the previous campaign to scant also rans this one. All that said, it’s high time Tottenham enjoyed a change of fortune in a season replete with struggles and difficulty, and lets hope they can finally kick on with a serious push for top four positioning to hopefully save the season.
