‘Yeah, looking at that,’ Wright said.

‘Especially if teams are going to give them that much space, they’re going to hurt people.’

Wright’s fellow pundit Alan Shearer concurred, he said: ‘With the unpredictability of this season and the way Spurs dismantled City today, with the injuries that Liverpool have, yes they are definitely.’

Mourinho’s plan for Pep Guardiola’s side was executed to perfection by his players

Mourinho’s plan for Pep Guardiola’s side was executed to perfection by his players with goals from Son Heung-min and Giovani Lo Celso ensuring they went home with all three points.

Tottenham have not lost since their 1-0 home defeat by Everton on the opening weekend of the season in September and lead the way by two points. However they will be overtaken if Leicester win at Liverpool on Sunday. 

Spurs boss Mourinho played down Tottenham’s title credentials following victory.

‘People cannot expect us to come here and after one season we are fighting for the title,’ he said. ‘We are not fighting for the title, we are just fighting to win every match. But we are going to lose matches, we are going to draw matches.’
