Nuno gets dream debut as Son strike sees Spurs win
Manchester City 0
Scorers: Son 55′
Tottenham stunned the reigning champions on Sunday as Heung-min Son’s second half goal was enough to beat Manchester City.
Jack Grealish was making his first start for City and was immediately involved in the action as his darting run resulted in a foul on the edge of the area. Ilkay Gundogan though, fired over the resulting free kick.
Pep Guardiola’s side were exceptional in the opening exchanged and really could have scored three goals inside the first 10 minutes.
City had an almost total monopoly on the ball but Spurs did threaten on a couple of occasions with rapid counter-attacks.
Into the second half and it wasn’t long before the home side bagged the opening goal of the game.
Heung-min Son breezed down the right-hand side, cut in, and fired a long range effort past Ederson.
Spurs really should have been 2-0 up soon after but Steven Bergwijn blasted a good chance wide of the post.
The visitors pushed forward for an equaliser late on as Kevin de Bruyne stung the hands of Hugo Lloris with a few efforts.
But Tottenham held on for a special win on Nuno’s debut.
Sizzling second half sees West Ham beat Newcastle
Newcastle United 2
West Ham 4
Scorers: Wilson 5′, Murphy 40′; Cresswell 18′, Benrahma 53′, Soucek 61′, Antonio 65′
West Ham came from behind to win the game of the season so far as they put four past Newcastle on a thrilling afternoon at St James’ Park.
West Ham flew out of the blocks here and almost scored inside two minutes only for Tomas Soucek to have his close range header cleared off the line.
But it was the home side who got the opening goal after only five minutes. Some brilliant work by Allan Saint-Maximin saw the French cross for Callum Wilson, who headed in from four yards.
But the Hammers weren’t deterred and found an equaliser soon after as Aaron Cresswell’s cross-come-shot found the far post.
This end-to-end first half wasn’t done there though as Jacob Murphy arrived late into the penalty area and headed in at the back post with five minutes remaining.
After the break the visitors immediately pulled level again as Said Benrahma latched on to a Michail Antonio cross and headed in.
David Moyes’s men smelt blood now and had the chance to get a third on 61 minutes when Pablo Fornals was fouled inside the area. Michail Antonio missed from the spot but Soucek was there to convert the rebound.
Antonio did get his goal however, as the forward raced on to a through ball and crashed one past Freddie Woodman.
