#3 HIT: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Tottenham Hotspur)

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been Tottenham Hotspur's signing of the season without a doubt.

The £15-million midfielder has hardly put a foot wrong since he joined the London side, and he provided another example of that against Manchester City.

He was given the task to mark Kevin de Bruyne and not give him much space, something he did with near perfection. The 25-year old rallied his troops in midfield and made sure that every second ball was won in that area.

Simply put, it was a night to remember for Hojbjerg.


#2 FLOP: Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City)

Gabriel Jesus will be hoping to forget everything about this game as soon as possible.

Inconsistency has been a hallmark of his game as the Manchester City player had an off-day against Tottenham Hotspur. Credit to the Brazilian, as he worked hard to provide something, but he could not find the back of the net for his team. He took too long at times to take his shot and release the ball.

The striker was also involved in a controversial moment when VAR spotted Jesus using his arm before assisting Laporte, and the Manchester City goal was disallowed.


#1 HIT: Son Heung-Min (Tottenham Hotspur)

It looks like Son Heung-Min just won't stop scoring. After another mind-blowing performance, the Tottenham Hotspur superstar is now leading the race for the Golden Boot.

The game was barely five minutes old when Son anticipated Ndombele's perfect ball over the top and finished it with ease. Son was relentless throughout the game and was running up and down the field.

With nine goals and two assists in the 2020-21 Premier League, Son has had an amazing start to the season and is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. The South Korean is in the form of his life, and Jose Mourinho can bank on him to give such performances week in and week out.
