Tottenham Hotspur took the lead in the Premier League on Saturday.

Manager José Mourinho's team won the top match against Manchester City 2-0.

Manchester United defeated West Bromwich Albion 1-0 and Hakim Ziyech booked the third victory in a row with Chelsea on a visit to Newcastle United: 0-2.

Son Heung-min opened the score for Tottenham against City after five minutes.

The South Korean passed the hatched Ederson with a slide in the left corner.

Moments later, Harry Kane also found the goal on behalf of the home team, but his goal was disallowed for offside.

City seemed to be on the same level after half an hour, but Aymeric Laporte's goal was disallowed after intervention of the VAR due to hands from Gabriel Jesus in the run-up to the goal.

Halfway through the second half, the 'Spurs' did reach 2-0.

Giovanni Lo Celso was on the field for less than a minute, when he placed the ball in the far corner on a pass from Kane.

Steven Bergwijn had a basic place at the London club and played until fifteen minutes before time.

Thanks to the victory, Tottenham is at least in the lead for a day.

The lead over number two Chelsea is two points.

Number three Leicester City is also two points behind, but will visit Liverpool on Sunday.

Manchester City can be found in the middle bracket.

Manchester United narrowly passes West Bromwich

Manchester United struggled to find the net against West Bromwich Albion.

Shortly after the break, the visitors were given a penalty after a foul by Bruno Fernandes, but after the intervention of the VAR, the ball did not hit the spot.

A few minutes later United was allowed to build from 11 meters after a handball by Darnell Furlong.

Fernandes saw his effort first turned by Sam Johnstone, but the penalty had to be taken over.

In the second attempt, the Portuguese took advantage of the opportunity and the home team did not give up the victory.

United is now ninth.

At St. James' Park, Chelsea took the lead against Newcastle United after ten minutes by an own goal by Federico Fernández.

The defender worked a cross from Mason Mount (ex-Vitesse) from close range behind his own goalkeeper Karl Darlow.

It stayed at that for a long time, after which Tammy Abraham took the tension out of the game in the 65th minute.

The 23-year-old striker worked through the inside of the post after a nice rush from Timo Werner, which he started on his own half.

Ziyech, important in the last two league matches with a goal and three assists, was again at the kick-off at Chelsea.

The Moroccan international made way for Olivier Giroud in the 87th minute.

It was the third league win and fifth in a row for 'The Blues'.

Derby County also loses under Rooney

At a lower level, Derby County under interim coach Wayne Rooney lost the first game since Phillip Cocu's resignation.

'The Rams', the last in the Championship, had to give up 1-0 against Bristol City.

The only goal of the game was scored in the 78th minute by Famara Diedhiou.

Derby County said goodbye to Cocu and the Dutch assistants Chris van der Weerden and Twan Scheepers last Saturday after a contract of eighteen months.

De Brabander had descended with the ambitious club from Derby to the depths of the Championship and won only one of the eleven league matches.

In English top scorer of all time Rooney, Derby County found an interim successor.

The 120-time England international was already a player and assistant under Cocu.

He takes over the duties of the head coach with Liam Rosenior, until the Championship club has found a new coach.

Incidentally, Rooney also played in the match against Bristol City.

He completed the ninety minutes and wore the Derby County captaincy, which still only has six points after twelve duels.
