Manchester City rebound to beat Tottenham at Wembley

Manchester City rebound to beat Tottenham at Wembley

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

"The amount of goals, chances, points, to do that in the Premier League with the contenders that we have it is because the players are so, so good".

He was by far the best player for his team as he created the majority of their chances.

After sweeping through most of the season in regal fashion, City had crashed down to earth with a bump over the last 10 days.

But with less than 20 minutes remaining in the game, Raheem Sterling grabbed the all-important third goal to return City to winning ways andon the edge of the title.

With five games to go the points record (95, Chelsea 2004/05) wins record (30, Chelsea 2016/17) and goals scored record (103, Chelsea 2009/10) are all up for grabs.

In a subsequent tweet on Thursday, the USA president said an attack on Syria "could be very soon or not so soon at all". The comments come after Theresa May won the backing of her Cabinet for military action against Syrian forces.

"People who say it was a big fail last week don't understand absolutely anything about football", Guardiola said.

Guardiola admitted he will not watch United's game on Sunday, though he does not expect them to slip up against the league's bottom-placed club. They are awesome, they are incredible. Yeah. Definitely. We did it... we nearly did it. City arrived, fearing against an in-form Tottenham, and left with the shiny new era back on track.

While City have an embarrassment of riches from which to piece together a starting XI, they are without a number of key figures at present.

A long ball from Kyle Walker saw Gabriel Jesus outpace Davinson Sanchez to race in on goal and finish coolly.

Christian Eriksen pulled a goal back for Spurs late in the first half.

Leroy Sane nearly gave City the lead in stunning fashion after four minutes, crashing a back-post volley against the post following Sterling's delivery from the right.

Pep: Man City Didn't Fail In Champions League
As soon as we win the first one, the second one will be easier. "We can not forget he was injured for one month", Guardiola said. We need to show ourselves that we can compete.

While it was a clear foul, the contact appeared to be made just outside the area, yet, to Tottenham's fury, Jonathan Moss awarded a penalty that Gundogan slotted home easily.

Running onto Harry Kane's defence-splitting pass, Eriksen's shot hit City's Aymeric Laporte and deflected back onto the Tottenham midfielder on its way past Ederson. That is not a situation to change the game too much.

Spurs were left chasing shadows as the Blues knocked the ball around purposefully and with speed and after just four minutes, the visitors' superiority was so almost rewarded as Leroy Sane's sumptuous volley smacked against the inside of the post from Raheem Sterling's cross.

"Now we have a mini-league for six games and we are going to try and close it".

That is it. Guardiola is keen to move on, and quickly, from failure and instead focus on a grueling PL season where they have stamped their superiority time and time again.

Russian court orders ban on Telegram app
