Man City Edge Closer To Premier League Title

Man City Edge Closer To Premier League Title

Echoes of last weekend's defeat to Manchester United might just have spurred City forward as they went in search of a third.

"In the game against United I snatched at a few", he told Sky Sports.

"Will I hear the scores?"

Tottenham were one of the teams that troubled City last season, with their aggressive pressing and high-tempo play.

Regardless of United's results, City will be crowned champions by beating Swansea next Sunday.

"People say it was a big failure, what happened last week, but they don't understand the reality of football", Guardiola said.

"At this level, when you play a team like Manchester City, from the beginning to the end you need to compete at your best level".

"I am not concerned, we must now be ready for Tuesday".

Manchester City moved to within three points of clinching the Premier League title by ending their three-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory against Tottenham at Wembley.

He added that intelligence shared by President Emmanuel Macron and Trump "in theory confirms the use of chemical weapons". Mr Trump said the USA is still investigating the possible involvement of the Iranian and Russian governments.

Sergio Aguero was pushed through the pain barrier in midweek against Liverpool, but that was with a Champions League semi-final place on the line.

Crystal Palace had been set to drop into the bottom three on goal difference prior to Chelsea's comeback. Burnley is seventh, two points behind Arsenal, which was scheduled to play on Sunday at Newcastle. Promotion was secured from the League Championship after Fulham drew with Brentford.

Sterling was on the scoresheet as Pep Guardiola's charges moved to within three points of top-flight glory, courtesy of a commanding win that also featured goals from Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan.

Replays showed Hugo Lloris made contact with Sterling fractionally outside the area when he lunged in to concede the penalty but Pochettino refused to seize upon that incident as an excuse.

Christian Eriksen pulled a goal back for the London side but they failed to mount a comeback as the blue half of Manchester won for the first time in four games. But an impressive 14-game unbeaten run in the league - going back to the reverse fixture at City in December - is over. "We are in the top four". It's been a tough game for us.

All of Liverpool's prolific front 3 were on target as Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino struck either side of Salah's deft header to take their combined tally for the season to 82.

Liverpool has 121 goals in all competitions. Though the eventual score was 3-1, City had at least three more good chances to widen the margin, and it was just their inability to find the finish that let them down at times.

Bad decision-making plagued Spurs throughout the night, especially in the final third as they failed to carve out many clearcut chances, let alone test Ederson in the City goal.

Sane nearly scored City's third goal on 29 minutes only to be denied by Davinson Sanchez who raced back to block the German's effort. Substitute Olivier Giroud began the fightback in the 70th by heading in Marcos Alonso's cross.
