London. Manchester City took another step back in their title aspirations after losing 2-0 in their visit to Tottenham, which with the victory took the lead in the Premier League.

Son Heung-min (5) and Giovani Lo Celso (65) were the authors of the goals of the Spurs, which in this way reach 20 points and surpass Chelsea, which had provisionally placed on top after winning 2-0 in his visit to Newcastle.

Meanwhile, the team coached by Pep Guardiola was stuck in the middle of the table, with 12 units, after having already lost half of the points played four days after visiting Olympiakos to seal their classification to the second round of the League of Champions.

Earlier, Chelsea won 2-0 in their visit to a listless Newcastle, who needed an hour to enter the game, which Frank Lampard’s players took advantage of to dominate the match and raise their self-esteem in the face of the trip to Rennes, the Tuesday in Champions.

The Blues won with a goal against defender Federico Fernández (10) and a goal from Tammy Abraham (65).

The surprise of the day had come shortly before, with the defeat at home of Aston Villa, which lost 2-1 against a Brigthon that moves away from the relegation zone.

Danny Welbeck put the visitors ahead (12) and although Ezni Konsa Ngoyo leveled for the hosts at the start of the second half, all three points flew from Villa Park with a goal from Solly March (56).

In the last game of the day, Manchester United rose to ninth place by winning 1-0 at West Bromwich with a penalty from Portuguese Bruno Fernandes (56), who had to charge a second time, after Sam Johnstone saved the first shot, but will get ahead of the line.
