Watch the Premier League online

Manchester City have one hand on the Premier League trophy after tonight's impressive 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley, which brought a three-match losing run to a timely end.

"They were the most consistent team, playing with fantastic players of course and fantastic coaching staff and fantastic manager".

Unusually sluggish, Tottenham didn't test City and, with a swagger back in their stride, Guardiola's men took the lead in the 22nd minute.

I play as a winger [so] it's a little bit more hard cause I have to give assists, I have to give the pass and create chances.

After the goal, Pep Guardiola's men suddenly looked brittle, just as they had in the second half against Manchester United the previous weekend.

Spurs have been the best team in the league since the turn of the year, and have accumulated 29 points in 11 encounters in 2018, winning nine and drawing two.


However, Olivier Giroud came off the bench to finally kickstart his Chelsea career with his first two Premier League goals for the club either side of Eden Hazard's leveller. His tendency to dovetail with the midfield duo of Eric Dier and Moussa Dembele, and constantly move forward in search of attacking opportunities, has made Spurs one of the best attacking units in the league.

Pochettino said: "I think you can improve but you need to be born with this character and this mental strength". City would love to replicate that result and be able to lock up the league title after failing to do so last week.

"What they lived in the last week was so unfair but they deserve (to win the league) and now we have a match ball".

As for Spurs, their spot in the top four is all but secure but Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Co.to deliver another famous Wembley moment this season.

They can not get the job done at the national stadium due to United playing on Sunday, but victory would put one hand on the trophy.

All Spurs could muster by way of a response was a stoppage-time drive from Lucas Moura as the hosts were left to come to terms with their first league defeat since December 16. However, Spurs will most certainly not just lie down and let them take it on their watch.
