EPL Week Betting Preview: Man City Slim Favorite Facing Tottenham

After they were beaten by Manchester United from two goals up when victory would have crowned them kings of England and knocked out of Europe by Liverpool, some suggested City were beginning to flag.

The last time Spurs conceded three goals at home in the Premier League was in March 2015 in a 4-3 win against Leicester City.

Manchester City hammer Spurs at Wembley: now certain of clinching title.

"Physicality, weather conditions, amount of games".

"That's why winning in this way, hopefully next Sunday it will remain in our hearts for the rest of our life".

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

Pep Guardiola's side, 16 points ahead of second-placed United, now need three more points to finally secure this season's league title.

"But the Premier League is one of the nicest and most important".

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. They don't understand anything.

They are already all-but assured of Champions League qualification for 2018-19, but still have work to do in order to get over the line. The league is nine months.

Hopefully that mojo doesn't come with us into the playoffs. "So, we have got to get right, and we've got to get our minds right". Can the Golden State Warriors defend their crown? Aldridge was blunt Friday when he was asked to reflect on the turnaround.

De Bruyne, a player-of-the-year candidate and arguably the driving force behind the title charge, admitted after this game that better defending and resilience were important following a hard run.

"The players have my total respect". They are awesome, they are incredible.

Asked if it would be extra special to win a league where some said his purist principles wouldn't work, Guardiola said: "Yes". Yeah. Definitely. We did it... we nearly did it.

Unusually sluggish, Tottenham didn't test City and, with a swagger back in their stride, Guardiola's men took the lead in the 22nd minute.

"We did not do that in the first 25 minutes".

And just after the twenty-minute mark City grabbed the lead Gabriel Jesus raced onto Vincent Kompany's through ball, before dispatching low beyond Hugo Lloris, much to the delight of the 3,000 or so travelling fans.

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.

But, for all their possession, the hosts could not muster any chances and it was City that had a golden opportunity to put the game to bed in the 64th. Soon after, Spurs had an even bigger let off when Jan Vertonghen somehow blocked from Sterling just as the forward looked set to pull the trigger.

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. For example, first league in my club Barcelona was a dream come true and to come here in this stadium and win the Champions League against United was also so, so nice, especially the way we played.
