Tottenham fans react as Son Heung-min strike leads to a win over Manchester City

Tottenham kickstarted the Nuno Espirito Santo era in fine fashion, beating Premier League champions Manchester City 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

Son Heung-min scored the only goal of the game as the Lilywhites in the 55th minute as the Lilywhites managed to stifle a rather underwhelming Manchester City side to bag all three points and send a message after their disappointing last season.

From Japhet Tanganga, to Oliver Skipp, to Steven Bergwijn and Son, all seemed up to the challenge against Pep Guardiola’s outfit on Sunday. And even though Harry Kane was unavailable for the north Londoners amid the lingering question marks over his future, Spurs did not let that affect or distract them.

It was a game of few chances and ultimately it was Son and Tottenham who made theirs count, as Manchester City struggled to beat Spurs’ skipper Hugo Lloris on the evening.

The win should set the platform for Nuno & co. to build upon and achieve progress after last season’s troubles. The outcome will also come as a massive confidence booster for the challenges that lie ahead.

Fans, naturally, were delighted with the outcome of the game and took to Twitter to celebrate their team’s victory over the Premier League champions. Here are some of the reactions from the Tottenham supporters
