Former Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has hailed Tottenham for their “brilliant” display when they rode home to beat Manchester City 2-0 On Sunday.
City, who are currently at the top of the league table and the title favorites were roundly beaten by a Mauricio Pochettino’s side on Sunday at White Hart Lane. This convincing win was strong enough to send home a message.
A strike by Dele Alli and an own goal from Aleksander Kolarov was enough to ensure that Spurs brushed off a second half controversy which saw Erik Lamela miss a penalty. This was after a little clash between him and Heung-Son Min over who should take it.
How Tottenham was able to bring an end to City’s 100 per cent unbeaten run is something that’s still remains quite impressive to Henry.
“If you ask Manchester City the right questions, they are going to be in trouble,” said Henry, as quoted by the Sky Sports website.
“Spurs are the first team we’ve seen do that to them in the Premier League this season and City didn’t have the answers so you have to give Spurs a lot of credit, they were brilliant today. Pep Guardiola will have learned that not all of his players are at the level he would want them to be at over the next 12 months.”
On his personal twitter account, Gary Lineker, a former Spurs striker and broadcaster revealed that his “tip for the Premier League title” was Tottenham. He although reiterated that it was “a little early to feel smug” about his choice.
With their win over City, Spurs are now back to second on the Premier League table, while further bringing down the gap between them and the league leaders to just a single point. They remain the only unbeaten side, having accumulated 17 points from seven league matches.
