A disciplined Tottenham Hotspur side got the better of Manchester City in a tactical triumph for Jose Mourinho over his great rival Pep Guardiola on Saturday.

Goals from Son Heung-min and Giovani Lo Celso either side of half-time sent Spurs to the top of the Premier League table as City, despite their dominance on the ball, laboured to a disappointing defeat.

The loss meant City stay mid-table, in tenth place after eight games, and it was hardly the result Guardiola would have wanted to mark the news of his new two-year contract.
