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:

We really needed a result like that. It’s been so, so long. Best game so far at the new stadium without a doubt. The atmosphere was booming. More nights like that at the new ground is what will make our stadium the best in the world.

Lloris immense, Tanganga incredible, Toby class, Winks brilliant, Sanchez solid and Aurier quality despite his obvious error to prevent City from scoring on the road for the first time since 2018. Fucking inject it 💉

Spurs Web Opinion
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.
