Manchester City lost a second league game in a row, with Harry Kane scoring his first club goal this season as Tottenham came from 1-0 down to win.

Kevin de Bruyne angled in an effort to put City in front before Eric Dier equalised with a 25-yard shot.

Toby Alderweireld then nodded Spurs in front from an Erik Lamela free-kick.

Kane side-footed in when team-mate Christian Eriksen’s free-kick came back off the woodwork before Lamela slid home as the visitors chased the game.

Decisions, decision, decisions

Both sides had cause for complaint as the assistant referees failed to spot players in offside positions for three of the goals at White Hart Lane.

De Bruyne was marginally ahead of play when he was set up by Yaya Toure before putting the Premier League leaders in front, though it was a close call.

The decision for Tottenham’s equaliser was more clear cut. Kyle Walker was clearly offside as he ran onto the ball down the left, before Son Heung-min had a shot saved at point-blank range by Willy Caballero. De Bruyne could only clear to Dier, who scored. City centre-back Martin Demichelis was booked for his complaints.

England striker Kane then appeared to be in an offside position before latching onto the loose ball for his goal.

What’s gone wrong for City?

City had won five league games in succession before losing to Juventus in their opening Champions League match of the season 11 days ago.

Defeat by the Italian champions appears to have knocked them out of their stride, and Manuel Pellegrini’s side have now lost three of their past four matches.

Injuries to key players have not helped, with goalkeeper Joe Hart on the bench at Spurs because of a back injury which meant he only trained for one day before the game.

Caballero, his deputy, was caught out when he came for Lamela’s free-kick and allowed Alderweireld to put the hosts 2-1 up.

City skipper Vincent Kompany was also missing, while midfielder Toure injured a hamstring to add to Pellegrini’s problems.

Kane is finally able

Kane scored four goals in his first eight games for Spurs last season but had gone 12 hours without scoring for his club when the clock ticked past 33 minutes here.

He looked to be in for another frustrating game when, having already shot wide, he was denied by Caballero after digging the ball out to get another effort away with his left foot.

But just after the hour mark, he was rewarded for his persistence to end a run of 748 minutes without a goal for his club.

“There’s been a lot of talk but I’m a confident man and have faith in my ability,” Kane told BT Sport. “I’m delighted. It was a very good victory against a team who were top of the table.”

The stats you need to know

  • Tottenham’s starting XI against City had an average age of 24 years 40 days – the youngest in the Premier League this season. The previous best was the Spurs side that beat Crystal Palace last weekend (24 years 118 days).
  • De Bruyne has scored three goals in his past three games for City – from just four shots on target.
  • Toure has four assists in seven league appearances this season – he had only one in 29 games last season.
  • Tottenham scored four goals in a league game against Manchester City for the first time since September 1962 (4-2).

What next?

City will aim to get their Champions League campaign back on track when they visit Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday. Spurs are next in action on Thursday, when they travel to Monaco in the Europa League.
