Goals from Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane and Erik Lamela ensured a controversial win over the Premier League table toppers
Tottenham pulled off a fantastic 4-1 victory over Manchester City on Saturday, aided by a string of offside decisions in the lead up to goals missed by officials.
Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring midway through the first half and there were suggestions that he was marginally in front of the last Spurs defender when Yaya Toure played him through.
There were no such uncertainties for the equaliser as Kyle Walker was well offside ahead of firing a cross in which was half-cleared to allow Eric Dier to lash low into the bottom corner from 30 yards.
Toby Alderweireld put the visitors into the lead with a header from a looped free kick before Harry Kane opened his goalscoring account for the Premier League season – although replays suggested he was also offside when Christian Eriksen struck the free kick which cannoned off the bar and into the path of the England international.
Lamela rounded off the jubilant result for Mauricio Pocettino’s men, which leaves Man City vulnerable to being leapfrogged in the Premier League table by Manchester United.
