Manchester City see off Spurs to take step closer to title

Manchester City had its eight-match undefeated streak of 7-0-1 snapped last week in a surprising 3-2 loss at home to Manchester United.

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.

"After that we started to control the game, we scored through Christian and then in the second half we started really well".

"These guys are fantastic and awesome".

De Bruyne has not scored since the end of January - a run which now stands at 13 games following this clash with Spurs - and his dip in form has coincided with City crashing out of the Champions League and FA Cup, as well as the run of results that had seen them lose 5 of 10 in all competitions prior to this game.

Russia says alleged chemical attack in Syria staged by UK
He accused the United States, France and Britain of "demonstrating a blatant disregard for global law". It was unclear what the approach might mean for Russian and Iranian forces in Syria.

United, on a high after their derby win, which was their fifth straight league victory, will expect to pick up another three points at Old Trafford against a West Brom side that looks doomed for the drop and has caretaker manager Darren Moore in charge for the second time.

Guardiola's City are on the verge of securing the title following their 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, with goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling.

City's recent slump signifies a lack of belief within the squad, which has genuinely failed to recover from the first-leg defeat to Liverpool.

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.

After a quiet start to the second half, City could have extended their lead in the 64th minute when Jesus broke through on goal, but the forward fired well wide with only Lloris to beat. The former is four goal behind the latter and Kane himself has four to go to catch up with Liverpool's Salah.

Jordan Ayew Elated To Score On Return From Suspension
Jordan Ayew boosted Swansea's fight for English Premier League survival by grabbing a 1-1 draw against Everton on Saturday. The Ghanaian returned from a three-match ban after he was red carded in his side's goalless draw game with Huddersfield.

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

Manager Sean Dyche's side now sits seventh in the standings, and a win on at home on Saturday against Leicester City would see them go seven points clear of the Foxes and move close to securing a spot in next season's Europa League.

However, United boss Jose Mourinho lambasted his players for basking in the glory of coming from 2-0 down to beat City 3-2 last weekend.

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.

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. The absence of Heung-Min Son definitely made it easier as he may be Tottenham's most unsafe wide attacker at the moment and this may have played a role in why Pep felt comfortable doing this.
