Archibald and Lineker react to Tottenham win

Tottenham produced one of the shocks of the weekend by blowing away Manchester City at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side claimed a 2-0 victory courtesy of an Aleksander Kolarov own-goal and Dele Alli’s composed finish in the first half.

Spurs pressed City into submission for large periods of the game, with the Serbian guiding the ball into his own net on nine minutes after Danny Rose’s cross.

Son Heung-Min then slipped Alli in to coolly finish and double Spurs’ lead.

Former Tottenham favourite Steve Archibald celebrated the win on Twitter and praised the work-rate and desire of Tottenham’s players.

The loss came as a surprise to some, with Manchester City enjoying a ten-match unbeaten run prior to the game under new boss Pep Guardiola.

Match of the Day presenter and former Spurs striker Gary Lineker tweeted a tongue-in-cheek response, joking the Citizens’ boss should be sacked.

Tottenham are now the only unbeaten side in the league and are in second, just a point behind City.
