City dropped just two points in its first 22 league matches this season, with that unbeaten sequence finally ended by a 4-3 defeat at Liverpool on January 14.

Spurs were left chasing shadows as the Blues knocked the ball around purposefully and with speed and after just four minutes, the visitors' superiority was so almost rewarded as Leroy Sane's sumptuous volley smacked against the inside of the post from Raheem Sterling's cross. Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne also wasted presentable opportunities in the opening ten minutes.

Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring for the visitors in the 22nd minute, firing home to put City ahead. "You have to learn that because, at the end, if we were not able to do it and United win the league, all we can say is "congratulations" to United, reflect on what we have done badly in the last month and move forward".

Things soon went from bad to worse for the home side. The spot kick was duly converted with aplomb by Ilkay Gundogan in the 25th minute.

It was 2-1 to Spurs on 74 minutes, Bennetts again the scorer with yet another set-piece.

Here's what Guardiola said when asked about the possibility of his team blowing their huge lead in the final weeks of the season. The half-time whistle didn't come a moment too soon for the Sky Blues.




Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho begins a two-game ban after accumulating 10 yellow cards, City's top scorer Sergio Aguero will miss the game through injury, while defender John Stones is also unavailable.

He [Salah] has done great, he has had an wonderful season and has gone ahead, so we will see [if I can catch him].

Then, finally, Spurs' luck ran out as Jesus fired a low shot in and though an initially unsighted Lloris kept the ball out, Sterling was on hand to hammer the ball into the roof of the net from four yards.

The attacking trio of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min have been a joy to watch, with their swift passing, movement, ability to get in behind the defence and eye for goal.

The South Korea global has now reverted to a wide role and is likely to line up directly against Walker, who left Tottenham past year, in the Premier League on Saturday. On Saturday, they will host Leicester at Turf Moor lying in seventh place, just five points adrift of sixth-placed Arsenal and a further three shy of Chelsea in fifth.

City will be crowned the Premier League champion on Monday (AEST) in the unlikely event of rock-bottom West Bromwich Albion beating Manchester United, but glory will come regardless if it beat Swansea City next weekend.
