Man City One Win Away From Title After Defeating Spurs

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino unconcerned by Manchester City's ability to dominate the Premier League next season

Lloris has been one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League during his time at Tottenham, but the France No. 1 is becoming a problem for Mauricio Pochettino.

Pep Guardiola's side headed into Saturday evening's Premier League meeting at Wembley against Spurs on a run of three consecutive defeats and with question marks being asked about their character.

"These guys are fantastic and awesome", said Guardiola, who will be on the golf course with his son when United plays on Sunday. They are awesome, they are incredible. "We had the first one against United, we could not do it and now we have another one against Swansea with our 60,000 people and we are going to try to be champion".

If Jose Mourinho's men win, City can do the business next week against Swansea regardless of any other results.

The opener then came from a move not usually associated with a Guardiola side - with a long ball from Kyle Walker launched into the path of Gabriel Jesus, who outpaced Davinson Sanchez before netting in the 22nd minute.

Christian Eriksen's goal on 42 minutes halved the deficit and gave Spurs hope of a second-half fightback, but Raheem Sterling confirmed City's victory by netting from close range on 72 minutes.

However, this time there was no second-half collapse as City should have ran out even more convincing victor.

City had a big chance to restore their two-goal lead on 63 minutes after Gundogan found Jesus with a good pass but the Brazilian scuffed his shot from 12 yards.

Over the last week, City was dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and missed the chance to seal top spot by losing to Manchester United. Exclaimed manager Jurgen Klopp on hearing Salah is the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush 31 years ago to score 40 in a season.

"I am not concerned, we must now be ready for Tuesday". "For him, for the boys, it's fantastic and today he certainly didn't look like he doesn't want to score in the next few games".

Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were also on target as Liverpool moved three points above Tottenham.

The defeat by the champions elect wasn't too damaging in that Spurs are still a healthy seven points ahead of Chelsea in the race for the final Champions League spot.

City started the brightest and nearly took the lead on three minutes but Leroy Sane's shot crashed off the post. It's been a tough game for us. Overall, despite having 47 percent of the ball, the Lilywhites were plagued by a lack of composure in their play and their inability to get things right in the second half caused them to fall further behind late on in the game. The Citizens needed to eradicate these doubts, and they did, putting in a brilliant performance, that led to their comprehensive win.

After three minutes of added time, the referee sounded the whistle to end the first half of the game with City leading by 2-1.
