Jose Mourinho watched Tottenham produce one of his trademark performances to secure a 2-0 home win over Manchester City and send out a message in the Premier League title race.

Counter-attacking goals in each half from Son Heung-min and substitute Giovani Lo Celso handed Spurs a statement victory despite Pep Guardiola's men dominating possession in the capital.



City may have been level with nine on the clock, but Toby Alderweireld impressively denied Gabriel Jesus inside the area before the Brazilian inadvertedly blocked a goalbound shot by captain Kevin De Bruyne.



Mourinho had predicted Raheem Sterling would start for City despite being unavailable for England due to a calf injury, but he was only named on the bench where he was joined by the fit again Sergio Aguero.

Spurs were happy for City to control possession with Mourinho watching his side produce the type of disciplined display which has become his trademark.

The City boss signed a contract extension this week, but was not able to toast it with three points after his team failed to breakdown the disciplined and organised hosts.

It meant Mourinho, who celebrated a year in charge of Tottenham on Friday, again got one over his old rival to send the north Londoners back to the top of the table for at least 24 hours.
