Man City recovers from setbacks to beat Spurs

Man City came into the tie a wounded team, after suffering a derby heartache against Manchester United last weekend and mid-week's frustrating Champions League exit in the quarter finals.

City put themselves in position to win the league by bouncing back from a bitterly disappointing week to ease past Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday to remind everyone why they have been the best side in the country by a distance this season.

Guardiola is concerned about the psychological effect that three defeats in a week might have on his players as they look to secure the trophy.

Chelsea kept their faint hopes of Champions League football next season alive by closing to within seven points of Spurs with a stunning eight-minute fightback to deepen Southampton's predicament in the bottom three. Happy, and satisfied. Relaxed enough to declare he was going to play golf with his son rather than watch second-placed Manchester United play West Bromwich Albion in a match that will have implications on his team's ability to clinch the title.

City have stretched their points haul to 87 while Spurs remain in fourth spot on 67 points.

City got off to a lively start and were almost ahead after two minutes when Leroy Sane saw his volley hit the upright. Watford's Troy Deeney has four goals in his last three starts against Bournemouth.

His overlapping runs create chances for the City attack, while his pace contributes to solid defensive displays.


Mohamed Salah has set his sights on breaking the Premier League record for most goals in a single season, Soccerway reports.

Sergio Aguero is also a doubt following a knee complaint after the Liverpool clash this week, meaning Gabriel Jesus could, as expected start up front.

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. City still has a virtual lock on the league championship, but would prefer not to keep any doomsday scenarios alive with another loss this weekend.

On the other hand, Tottenham needs to continue picking up points to ensure a Champions League finish for a third consecutive year. The top six really go at it with you.

Harry Kane will be expected to return to the starting line-up for Spurs after he marked his return to action from an ankle injury with a controversial goal.

But this time, they seemed more careful at the back, but that didn't stop the hosts too from making a statement in the game as Dele Alli tried a powerful shot from Erikson's corner, but the effort was deflected 8th minute.

For City, midfielder Fernandinho will be serving his first of two suspensions after racking up 10 yellow cards this season.
