Phil Foden’s first Premier League goal moved Manchester City back to the top of the Premier League table as they claimed a 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur.

The only goal of the match came after only five minutes, when Bernardo Silva’s lofted pass was headed across goal by Sergio Aguero for Foden to head home.

Spurs were a threat on the counter-attack, with Ederson twice denying Son Heung-min during the opening 45 minutes.

City’s best chance of the second half fell to Raheem Sterling but he was denied from point-blank range by Paulo Gazzaniga, while Ederson saved from Lucas Moura at the other end.
