Tottenham 4-1 Man City

Three defeats in four games for City means their impressive start to the season is a distant memory.

Spurs are on the up, though. This was their third straight league win and they have not lost in the league since the opening day of the season.

For a developing match report go here.

And for the rest of the reaction from White Hart Lane, and the team news and build-up for all the 15:00 BST games, you can go here.

Daniel Tinkler: Lamela told to buckle up and prove his worth by Pochettino and in the last 2 games has been on fire. So that worked then.

Luke Parsons: I think what we've seen today shows why English clubs struggle in Europe, none of the big teams have the squad depth to compete

City still top - for now

Tottenham 4-1 Man City

City are still top - for now. Spurs are up to fifth, again for now, but I don't think they will care too much if they drop a couple of places after that performance.

FULL-TIME

Tottenham 4-1 Man City

A reminder that City did not concede a single goal in their first five league games - without Vincent Kompany they have conceded six in their last two league matches... there might be a connection there...

This was a woeful defensive display by City all round - especially by goalkeeper Willy Caballero, who was at fault for Tottenham's second goal.

The Spurs players are celebrating on the pitch. City's team disappeared down the tunnel as quickly as they could.

'Spurs show real character'

Jermaine Jenas

Former England midfielder on Final Score

"Three of the goals have been blatantly offside, but it's just the way the game goes sometimes. Spurs showed real character today and they've all turned up, Harry Kane has got his goal and they've taken their chances. After the derby defeat midweek by Arsenal this is exactly what they needed."

Spurs fans are giving it the "ole" after every pass, as we go into injury time at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham 4-1 Man City

City's defending without Vincent Kompany has been poor, and Joe Hart was badly missed in goal - as was David Silva in attack. These are worrying times for City, especially with an important Champions League game against Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany on Wednesday.

Maggie in Lowestoft on text:  Im in dreamland. So pleased for Kane and Lamela. No one gave us a prayer today. This will be huge for Spurs confidence and belief.

Chris in Banbury: Is Nasri really good enough to be in a side going for the Title and Champions League, there's a reason why he's not selected for France.

As it stands table

Tottenham 4-1 Man City

City fans should probably make the most of seeing their side at the top of the table - United host bottom-side Sunderland at 3pm and will go above their neighbours with any sort of win.

Tottenham 4-1 Man City

Dele Alli goes into Mark Clattenburg's book for fouling Kevin De Bruyne. City have a free-kick near the left-hand corner of the area, which De Bruyne takes... but sees his shot easily saved by Hugo Lloris. The Spurs keeper has not had a very busy afternoon.

Tottenham 4-1 Man City

White Hart Lane is bouncing now... except from the corner of the ground housing the away fans. It gets worse for City too - I'm told there were loud cheers at Old Trafford when that fourth Spurs goal went in - if the score stays the same then Manchester United will go top later, if they beat Sunderland.

"Wow. Fantastic. Erik Lamela just goes round Willy Caballero with four touches. Manchester City will be wondering how on earth they went from their first-half performance to this."

GOAL - Tottenham 4-1 Man City

Erik Lamela (79 mins)

 This is a complete collapse by City now. Erik Lamela keeps his cool when he collects Clinton Njie's cross and holds off a frankly woeful attempted challenge from Martin Demichelis before leaving Willy Caballero on his backside and firing home.

Another Spurs change. Son Heung-min makes way for Clinton Njie.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Tottenham 3-1 Man City

Spurs have the ball in the net again - but at last we have a correct offside decision. Son Heung-min gets the final touch on a goalbound Nacer Chadli header from a yard out and is flagged.

A lucky escape for City but their defence is all over the place from set-pieces at the moment.

City come forward again but Kevin De Bruyne is not expecting Jesus Navas's pass on the edge of the Spurs box and the home side clear their lines.

Another chance for City, but Raheem Sterling drags his shot wide. That was their best opening of the second half too.

GREAT SAVE!

Tottenham 3-1 Man City

I was about to say City are not looking much like a team about to mount a comeback, when Jesus Navas fires in a fierce shot. The Spaniard is not known for his end product but that was heading for the top corner until Hugo Lloris tipped it over.

YELLOW CARD

Tottenham 3-1 Man City

Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen fouls Kevin de Bruyne, then kicks the ball away. Referee Mark Clattenburg spots it and books him.

Tottenham 3-1 Man City

What a turnaround at White Hart Lane. City were 1-0 up after 45 minutes. The league leaders are 3-1 down after 65 minutes.

Jason Roberts

Former West Brom striker on BBC Radio 5 live

"You keep doing the right things and Harry Kane gets his rewards. The whole crowd applaud him. As the unbelievable free-kick comes in, Kane just connects with it. There is relief from everyone that he’s scored."

GOAL - Tottenham 3-1 Man City

Harry Kane (61 mins)

The resulting free-kick sees Spurs extend their lead, again in controversial fashion.

Christian Eriksen bends a free-kick against the bar from 25 yards out and Harry Kane, standing offside behind the City wall when the free-kick was taken, slots the rebound into the empty net.

That's Kane's first Spurs goal of the season after 748 goalless minutes and England boss Roy Hodgson, watching in the stands, cannot conceal his joy.

YELLOW CARD

Spurs, meanwhile, are looking very dangerous on the break. Erik Lamela is sent tumbling by Martin Demichelis - who was booked for dissent at half-time. The City defender is very lucky not to be shown a second yellow card.

Tottenham 2-1 Man City

Still no joy for City. Raheem Sterling lets fly from the edge of the area but it is easy for Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris.

Spurs have a lot of men back as they look to protect their lead. City have been here before - against West Ham last week, when they failed to find an equaliser.

"It's a big loss. Everything good happening for Man City has been through Yaya Toure - he's such an important player for them."
