Tottenham v Manchester City - Story of the match

  • Tottenham's Harry Kane 'not bothered' by goal appeal backlash as he aims for Golden Boot

With the win, Manchester City boosted its Premier League points tally to 87 points, 16 more than second-placed Manchester City.

Manchester City have emerged from a trough of despair to beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 and move to within three points of the Premier League title at Wembley.

But Pep Guardiola's side was back in fine form to see off fourth-place Tottenham.

City's hellish week had Guardiola warning his players that "anything can happen" as he recalled other great sporting collapses from seemingly invincible positions.

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.

City host Swansea next Sunday but could even be confirmed as champions as early as Sunday if United lose at home to rock bottom West Brom.

A tumultuous return from the worldwide break for Manchester City has come to an end.

Tonight's game against Spurs will not be an easy affair for the Mancunians as Spurs are expected to play to win tonight.

If City were hurting from the defeats to United and Liverpool, it didn't show in the opening moments of this game at Wembley.

"We only started to compete after 2-0 down, we scored, but of course over 90 minutes Manchester City were better", Pochettino said. Because of the way we conceded the goals, yes, I am disappointed but [there is] nothing to worry about.

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

Chasing Salah to claim the Premier League Golden Boot for a third consecutive season, Kane will be desperate to get on the scoresheet and close the gap.

City boss Pep Guardiola will be unable to select Sergio Aguero after the Argentine suffered a knee injury picked up in training last month. That, and the fact that they overcame the setback of those losses, and put themselves in position to clinch the league easily, bodes well for their future as a team, and shows Pep Guardiola has them making great strides in the right direction and that they would be the team to beat in the Premier League and one of the best in Europe next season as well.

A week after spoiling City's title party, United duly handed the league to their local rivals.

Sterling - who won the first-half spot kick despite replays showing Lloris' rash lunge made contact with him fractionally outside the box - was frustrated by passing up opportunities as his did in the Manchester derby, despite eventually scoring his 17th league goal of the season. In football you always want to compete and win. The top six really go at it with you. Eriksen and Alli tried their best to infuse energy and creativity into the team's play but they were unable to break down an organised opposition defence, with the main man Kane forced to feed off scraps and marked out of the game by Vincent Kompany.
