The dry spell is over – in more ways than one. Manchester City had not won since Sergio Agüero’s last goal, away to Swansea on 24 September, but seven games later the Argentina striker found the net twice in the first half to catapult Pep Guardiola’s team past an uninspiring West Bromwich Albion and back to the top of the table, where Arsenal had momentarily displaced them earlier in the afternoon.
As goalless draws go this was certainly eventful, with Manchester United going down to 10 men, José Mourinho being banished from the sidelines, Tom Heaton putting in another inspired goalkeeping performance and Burnley deservedly picking up their first away point of the season.
Tottenham have the defence to win the title. It has taken them 10 matches to concede from open play in the league this season and none of their rivals can match Mauricio Pochettino’s side when it comes to defensive excellence. Yet whether Tottenham have enough in attack to last the pace is more debatable.
It’s fair to say the first top-flight meeting between these teams will not live long in the memory. Even so, Michael Dawson’s own goal, eight minutes from time, was a cruel blow for a Hull City side who had looked like ending a disastrous run of results on the road, but have now lost seven of their last eight.
