Tottenham Hotspur confuses Manchester City and jumps to the top of the Premier League

Tottenham took the lead with his son’s early stab after a gorgeous thru ball from French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

Despite the constant pressure of Manchester City, including Aymeric Laporte’s unforgivable goal, it was Tottenham who doubled the lead by scoring shortly after entering the pitch.

With this victory, the Spurs pushed London’s rival Chelsea, who defeated Newcastle on Saturday, to the top of the Premier League.

“It was a great performance,” Tottenham striker Harry Kane later told Sky Sports. “I knew it was going to be a tough match. Manchester was a great team, but I used the ball well. I had a game plan to defend as a unit in that midblock, but sometimes I went into the low block. I thought everyone took off their socks today.

“This season is the season when you have to do everything you need to win the match. This year will go up and down. I’ve already seen it. Part of my work is working hard for the team. Working and winning the tackle. Of course, scoring goals and getting assistance, but I enjoy defending and working hard.

“The feeling I have after the match after making a big shift is no more when I win. We enjoy it, but we know we still have a long way to go. “
