Tottenham made big statement by beating Manchester City - Dele Alli

Mauricio Pochettino's side ended Manchester City's ideal start in the Premier League on Sunday, as a Aleksandar Kolarov own goal and a Dele Alli strike consigned the visitors to their first defeat of the season.

In his first season in charge Pochettino led Tottenham Hotspur to Wembley for the then Capital One Cup final and in his second season saw Tottenham launch a title campaign which ended with their highest finish in the Premier League era.

"We can just say congratulations to Tottenham". Our team is still young but there is a big appetite here, we are all hungry to get great performances. It does not mean we are a defensive team.

"But we have the ability to play with different options, like we did in the second half, playing a bit deeper, waiting and counter-attacking".

"They have players with talent - we knew how aggressive they are, home and away and especially home". Upgrade now and enjoy three months at half price!

For City, the global break comes at a good time to take stock, with Sunday's defeat their only blip on an otherwise superb start to the campaign.

When you look at Tottenham through that lens, you see lots of reasons why Spurs could win this year's Premier League title.

Alli added: "I don't think there's any denying they are a brilliant football team and they do like to play the ball".

A draw would have been a good result for Arsenal as well, but if either of the top two teams was to win I think that the best thing from an Arsenal point of view was a win for Tottenham, even if we really do not like our north London rivals, and it appears that Arsene Wenger feels the same way. "For us, we need to be clever", he said. We do a lot of work.
