League leaders Manchester city lost their second consecutive game in the season as Tottenham Hotspur defeated them 4-1 at White Hart Lane.
An early goal from Manchester City’s most expensive player Kevin De Bruyne gave Manuel Pellegrini’s side lead at 25 minutes but Spurs came back thanks to goals from Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane and Erik Lamela.
While other title contenders will be happy with the result, Pellegrini has piled on a huge pressure on his head with the defeat.
Decisions from the officials were the centre of attentions in the game as more than one goal could have been ruled as offsides, but Spurs really did well to beat the most expensive team in England.
Twitter acted hilariously on the defeat of Manchester City and also on the officials’ decision. Here are some tweets on the match-

Howard Webb is on-hand in the BT Sport studio to clear up the De Bruyne offside debate. “Should have been a penalty to Man United,” he says.

Seriously. How is the linesman not seeing that? He’s stood 6 yards from him. That is an actual joke.
