Mauricio Pochettino's men produced a brilliant performance in today's Premier League lunchtime kick-off to defeat league leaders Manchester City.

Kevin De Bruyne put the visitors ahead and looked as though it would be plain sailing for Manuel Pellegrini's side from then on. Tottenham, however, rallied and equalised on the stroke of half-time though Eric Dier's deft finish.

After the break, there was only one side in it. As City floundered, the home side took hold and Toby Alderweireld put them ahead with a header from a corner. When Christian Eriksen's free-kick smacked against the upright, Harry Kane was on hand to guide the rebound into a gaping goal, ending his long run without a league strike.

The win, and the memorable afternoon at White Hart Lane, was rounded off by the superb Erik Lamela, who rounded Willy Caballero before slotting home. It will be remembered as a famous win for Spurs but an afternoon to foget for several of City's players. 

How did we think the each of the starters got on?
