Manchester City took their aggregate score against Tottenham Hotspur this season to 11-1 thanks to a dominant victory at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.

Following up on their 6-0 win earlier in the season, City beat Spurs 5-1 in North London to move to the top of the Premier League table―taking advantage of Arsenal and Chelsea both dropping points this midweek.

Sergio Aguero scored the opening goal in the first half before limping off with a worrying injury, before City benefited from the harsh decision to send Danny Rose off for a challenge on Edin Dzeko in the penalty area early in the second half.

Yaya Toure scored the resultant penalty, with Dzeko, Stevan Jovetic and Vincent Kompany adding the other goals in a dominant win for the visitors against the hosts, who could only reply through an Etienne Capoue strike that made it 3-1.

Here are six lessons that we learned from the game.
