Man City on brink of title after sinking Spurs

Goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling gave Manchester City a deserved 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Those events has prompted its manager Pep Guardiola to make the extraordinary suggestion that City could suffer a stunning title collapse on the domestic front ahead of the match against Tottenham Hotspur.

"Harry Kane and [Sergio] Aguero, I said before, they are strikers they play number nine", Salah pointed out to CNN, per the Evening Standard.

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.

Tottenham are relatively comfortable in terms of earning a Champions League spot for next season, sitting at fourth in the table and 10 points clear of Chelsea in fifth. Happy, and satisfied. Relaxed enough to declare he was going to play golf with his son rather than watch second-placed Manchester United play West Bromwich Albion in a match that will have implications on his team's ability to clinch the title.

It truly was a heartbreaking result for Manchester City, though the cardiovascular damage was hardly irreparable.

Spurs came out to try and get themselves back in the game but City held on to pick the three points.

Un vocero consultado explicó que no se descarta que los dos homicidas hayan estado alcoholizados al momento del hecho. El hecho sucedió en La Matanza , el domingo a la tarde, en la localidad de Virrey del Pino .

Below are four talking points from Wembley.

Much had been made of Sterling's profligacy before the game, although the winger finally netted to put City in the driving seat after 72 minutes, the England global smashing home from close range after Lloris had originally saved a shot from Jesus. He has created the highest number of chances during that spell. An exciting finale to the 2017/18 Premier League season beckons...

While City's morale is down and the Premier League title all but won, Spurs have something to play in this clash.

Defeat for Spurs handed Chelsea a glimmer of hope in the fight for Champions League places after they came from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2, but Liverpool strengthened their position in the top four as Mohamed Salah scored his 40th goal of the season in a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

"In football, until you get or you achieve what you want, never in football is it over until the end". The top six really go at it with you.

"It's more hard (to win in England)". Tottenham did a good job early on pressuring City players on both the giving and receiving end of passes and it disorganized the attack. However, Danny Rose will miss the game after picking up a minor calf strain but is expected to return in time for Tuesday's trip to Brighton.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is available having been cup-tied in the Europa League but fellow January recruit Henrikh Mkhitaryan is still sidelined with a knee injury.
