Thanks for joining us. Goodnight
An outstanding performance by Spurs handed Pep Guardiola his first defeat as Manchester City manager. Spurs were quick out of the box and an early own goal by Kolarov gave Pochettino's men a deserved lead.
Dele Alli then made it 2 to round off a fantastic move.
City tried to fight back in the second half with Aguero leading the charge. The Argentine had a couple of shots saved by Lloris before Spurs had the chance to make it three through an Erik Lamela penalty. Bravo saved it though to keep the Citizens in the game.
City piled on the pressure late on but Spurs held firm to ensure a 2-0 win.
The win moves Spurs to within a point of Manchester City and a point clear of Liverpool
The final whistle blows!!!
Stones does brilliantly to evade a couple of challenges before finding Aguero in the 6 yard box. His shot is scuffed though and rolls through to a grateful lloris
91' We will have 4 added minutes
90' Great defending by Dier. Aguero tries a shot from distance but an outstretched leg by Dier keeps the score the same
89' Not great play by the new man Nkoudou as his first involvement in the game is a foul on Sane
87' Last throw of the dice for Pep as Leroy Sane replaces Raheem Sterling
Dele Alli walks off to thunderous applause from the fans. George Kevin Nkoudou is the man to replace him
83' What a challenge by Rose.
Kolarov's cross-field ball finds Raheem Sterling in acres of space. He runs towards the goal and gets ready to pull the trigger but is denied by a last-ditch sliding challenge by Rose
Gundogan and Silva exchange passes before finding Aguero who again tries a left-footed shot and yet again is thwarted by Lloris' fingertips
77' City piling on the pressure now but the Spurs backline are keeping them at bay. Gundogan now unleashes a shot in frustration but it flies high and wide
76' Corner for Spurs. Taken by Lamela but easily headed away by Stones
Silva threads a perfect pass in behind the Spurs defence. Iheanacho finds himself one on one with the keeper but his attempt is weak and Lloris easily saves
73' Pochettino looks worried on the touchline. Not sure why. His side have been exceptional
70' Spurs have been so comfortable in this second half barring that Aguero chance early on. City have looked uninspired and leggy. Maybe their Champions League exertions have left them unprepared for the battle tonight
67' Pep had had enough. Iheanacho comes on for Navas who has been poor tonight
66' What a chance that was for Spurs to kill off the game finally. Why didn't Eriksen take it instead of Lamela? Baffling really.
Tries to give Bravo the eyes but the keeper doesn't fall for it and makes a comfortable save to his left
64' One touch passing by Spurs sees Dele Alli set free on goal. He is brought down by Fernandinho from behind and the ref points to the spot. Clear pen
62' Poor ball by Navas!!
The Spaniard finds some space on the left and tries to find Aguero in the box. His cross is too high and runs out for a goal kick
61' Nothing happening for the Citizens and Guardiola looks extremely frustrated on the touchline
58' What is Bravo doing at the moment?
Another risky throw by the keeper as he tries to find Gundogan. Wanyama easily intercepts and plays in Sissoko but his cross is straight at the Manchester City keeper.
55' Sterling goes into the book now after a poor challenge on Danny Rose
53' Challenges flying in everywhere as Sissoko, Wanyama, Fernandinho and Otamendi all launch into tackles trying to impact the game
52' Silva lets it go for Navas whose cross is volleyed into the top tier of White Hart Lane by Fernandinho
52' Free-kick for City in a great position. Rose bundles down Sterling right at the edge of the box. Silva steps up
The Argentine is sent through on goal and strikes one with his left foot. Lloris gets a foot on it though which sends it onto the post and out for a corner
Wanyama picks up the ball at the centre circle before heading towards goal. He then fires a powerful shot from range which flies just wide of the post. It was in fact brilliantly saved by Bravo. City under fire at the moment
Sloppy pass from Kolarov gifts Son with possession at the edge of the box. He tries to bend one past Bravo into the corner but gets too much of the ball and sends it flying wide of the post
The players are back. City begin the second half with a mountain to climb
City has been completely outclassed in the first half and trail by 2 goals. Can Guardiola's men find a way back or will he be condemned to his first defeat in charge of the Citizens? Join us in 10 minutes for the second half.
45' Late chance for City as Aguero tries to round Lloris. The keeper does well though and gets a hand on the ball to keep the Argentine at bay.
45' We will have one minute of added time in a first half that has absolutely flown by
Rose plays a magnificent cross field ball to Son who is everywhere at the moment. The South Korean is just caught offside, though ,he was bearing down on goal
