Not a good start for the defending champions, Son Heung-Min’s only striker was enough to win all three points for spurs against Manchester City.
After a goalless first half, Tottenham broke the deadlock in the 55th minutes, after Lucas Moura started a counter-attack, gave the ball to Steven Bergwijn, who then passed to Son, and the Korean curled the ball to the bottom left corner with his weak foot.
Brilliant start for Tottenham under new manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, and will hope to build on that. Manchester City, on the other hand, have started on a poor note again like the previous campaign, but Pep Guardiola will need to find answers.
While Tottenham Hotspur are celebrating a win in front of their home fans, Manchester City’s unbeaten record on opening day ended, as the Cityzens lost their opening Premier League game for the first time in 10 years.
