Tottenham have gone top of the Premier League table after a Jose Mourinho tactical masterclass saw them beat Manchester City 2-0 at home.

Mourinho, who surprisingly picked Steven Bergwijn ahead of Gareth Bale, saw his side score with their first chance on goal when Tanguy Ndombele’s ball over the top split City’s defence and Son Heung-Min fired the ball through Ederson’s legs.

The home side soaked up the pressure and used the counter attack to good effect. They had the ball in the net again when an unmarked Harry Kane bundled in Son’s pass but it was chalked off for offside.

Pep Guardiola’s side, who started Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero on the bench, had 11 scoring chances in the first half. They also had a goal disallowed this time by VAR when Gabriel Jesus was penalised for handball in the buildup to Aymeric Laporte’s strike.

The visitors’ decision making in the final third continued to cost them with Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez well below their best.

And Spurs killed the game off with another counter attack with Kane finding Giovanni Lo Celso who netted less than a minute after coming on.

The result sees the North London club go two points clear of second-placed Chelsea while City languish in tenth position.
