Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola during the international break penned a new 2-year deal ahead of his team’s trip to London to face the inform Tottenham Hotspur. The Citizens were definitely expecting the announcement the contract extension of one of football's most coveted managers to provide a much needed boost after an indifferent start which has seen them lose 2-5 at home to Leicester City and settle for stiff 1-1 draws against newly promoted Leeds United and West Ham.

But whatever plans Pep and his Sky Blue army had to get their season back on track where quickly dispelled by the 5th minute when Son lost his marker in typical fashion and placed a deft shot past Ederson after a beautiful pass from a rejuvenated Ndombele which caught the entire City defense napping.

City’s woes upfront continued as they had much of the possession but couldn’t do much with it till Spurs made it 2-0 from a counter attack deep in the 65th minute with Giovani Le Ceslo latching on to Harry Kane’s pass to reward Tottenham with their second goal from their second shot on target.
Sitting in the bottom half of the table with 12 points after 8 matches might be dismissed as early season blues for most clubs but it definitely raises eyebrows when it comes to high flying Manchester City who with this defeat just made their worst start to a football season since 2009.
The result means Spurs are on top of the table with 20 points from nine games with Chelsea following, only two points behind after the same number of games. City are in the second half of the table though they have a game in hand.
