Tottenham 2 - Man City 0: Alli strike and Kolarov own goal end Guardiola's perfect start
Spurs began well and took the lead with under 10 minutes gone when Kolarov swung a leg at Danny Rose’s cross and inadvertently put the ball into the back of his own net.
Tottenham were dominating and Christian Eriksen almost doubled the home side’s lead from a free-kick which crept just wide of the post.
But Mauricio Pochettino’s side went two ahead soon after when Son Heung-min’s delightful ball found Alli, and he swept the ball home under Claudio Bravo.
After the break Victor Wanyama almost made it three with a 20-yard strike which forced Bravo into a fine save.
