Giovani Lo Celso, right, scored his first Premier League goal in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Manchester City (Clive Rose/PA) 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.

Mourinho was able to celebrate another masterstroke and Tottenham were within touching distance of a statement win.

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.

Alderweireld found the England skipper in the middle of the pitch, who spotted Lo Celso had run away from De Bruyne and after the substitute took a touch into the area, he steered into the corner for his first ever Premier League goal.

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

It was not all positive for Spurs who saw Alderweireld leave the pitch with an injury nine minutes from time, but they have replaced Chelsea at the summit and extended their unbeaten league run to eight games.
