As a result of this victory, Spurs have managed to reclaim the top spot from Chelsea and Liverpool. The North London outfit have an advantage in terms of goal difference compared to the defending champions. Mourinho has been downplaying the chances of Spurs winning the title so far this season. However, he felt that this victory was a sign of improvement from the team that they are ready to step up and not lose their advantage at the top. This was a match that once again produced the brilliant combination of Harry Kane and Son Heung‑min.
