Lets predict; Tottenham vs Man City who do you think would win???

Despite those defeats, Pep Guardiola's men have lost only twice in the league this season, and they boast an impressive record against Spurs when they thumped the North London side 4-1 at the Etihad back in December.

"Then we started to compete, at 2-0 down and we scored to make it 2-1 and started the second half really well, but Manchester City after 90 minutes were better".

"These guys are fantastic and awesome", said Guardiola, who will be on the golf course with his son when United plays on Sunday.

City impressed with their ability to control the game and not let it get out of hand despite missing chances at the other end, something they found tough to do so in the three defeats they suffered in the last few days. "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". The title will be theirs if Manchester United loses to West Brom on Sunday.

Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gündogan and Raheem Sterling all scored for City, which moved 16 points ahead of Manchester United with five matches to play.

Spurs reduced the deficit with four minutes remaining in the half as Aymeric Laporte's attempted clearance hit Christian Eriksen and sailed into the back of the net.

Though there were half chances at either end in the time that remained, that was just about that, with the three points thoroughly deserved from a group of players who play lovely football no matter what.

Sterling's misses preceded City's fall from grace against United and his was the greatest relief of all when, having inexplicably dallied with the goal at his mercy in the 71st minute, he slammed home the rebound after Lloris brilliantly denied Jesus.

Guardiola´s players will focus on those targets once they have recovered from a boisterous evening of celebrations in Manchester. Firstly for him, coming to this league for the first time, and then we had to take on all this information he was giving to us.

"Because we are battling against Liverpool for the top four as well it's a bit of excitement".

"But today was a hard game". Guardiola's side has also recorded three consecutive wins on their travels in the Premier League, scoring at least two goals in all three victories.

Tottenham still occupies the fourth Champions League spot, although Chelsea closed the gap to seven points after coming from behind to beat Southampton 3-2.

Saints led 2-0 with 20 minutes remaining through Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek.

Arsenal have long since given up hope of making the top four, instead prioritising their chances of making the Champions League next season on winning the Europa League.

All of their prolific front three were on target as Mohamed Salah took his tally for the season to 40 - becoming only the third Liverpool player ever to reach that mark.

Egypt global Salah has been a revelation since returning to English football in a €42m transfer from Roma in July, scoring 39 goals in all competitions.
