LONDON (Reuters) - A vibrant Tottenham Hotspur won Sunday's meeting of the Premier League's only two unbeaten sides when they beat leaders Manchester City 2-0.

City, who had won their first 10 matches of the season under new manager Pep Guardiola before drawing 3-3 at Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday, remain top of the table. But they could not cope with the intensity, pace and pressing of Spurs, who now sit second, only a point behind.

The home team went ahead in the ninth minute when Aleksandar Kolarov put Danny Rose's long cross into his own net and an unmarked Dele Alli doubled the lead before half-time.

In the second half, Claudio Bravo saved Erik Lamela's penalty to prevent an even heavier defeat.

Over at the King Power Stadium, champions Leicester were held to a goal-less draw by Southampton.

The Foxes have won just two of their opening seven league games. They sit 12th on the table on eight points.
