Something was always likely to give when the Premier League’s two unbeaten sides met at White Hart Lane and Tottenham Hotspur F.C. swept aside Manchester City 2-0 to inflict Pep Guardiola’s first defeat as the visitors’ manager on Sunday, October 2.

The win moved second-placed Tottenham one point behind City at the top.

City, who had not dropped a point in their previous six games, went behind when Aleksandar Kolarov diverted a cross from Danny Rose past his own keeper on nine minutes.

Dele Alli added a second after good work from Son Heung-min and, with City failing to cope with Spurs’ pressing and pace, the home side also had an Erik Lamela penalty saved by Claudio Bravo.
