While Man City are not currently competing at the top of the Premier League, you have to consider them one of the frontrunners for the league title with the squad that Pep Guardiola possesses’.
With Tottenham being one of the in-form teams in the league, with Son being a major contributor to that, this game was looking like a spectacle which was the perfect way to dust off any cobwebs left over from the international break.
Son, who was away with his country over the break, clearly allowed no dust to gather over the last two weeks as he looked sharp racing through on goal and beating Ederson with the finish.
Son Heung-min is unstoppable right now… ??

It’s the perfect start for Jose Mourinho’s men, while Guardiola has work to do if he’s going to mark his contract-extending week with a victory in North London.
That’s Son’s 11th goal contribution in the Premier League this season, too. He’s really stepped it up a level this term – and Tottenham benefiting from it.
