City were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and missed the chance to seal top spot against rivals Manchester United over the last week but Pep Guardiola's men put on a sizzling display at Wembley to get back to winning ways. Guardiola may even rest Leroy Sane, who has played 90 minutes in City's last four games, and is probably in need of a rest.

"What they lived in the last week was so unfair but they deserve (to win the league) and now we have a match ball".

Ilkay Gundogan has been charged with the task of covering Fernandinho's absence for Manchester City against Tottenham.

Manchester City moved within one win of the Premier League title by defeating Tottenham 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday.

Of course, Mauricio Pochettino's men will be confident and have more than enough to hurt a fragile City side, but it is unlikely to be a walkover.

"That is so important but the ambition is to win titles and one day the Premier League or Champions League".

Danny Rose is out for Tottenham with a calf injury. He also has a keen eye for talent and that can be seen with the signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax, with the young Colombian having replaced stalwart Toby Alderweireld in the starting eleven seamlessly.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Tottenham counterpart Harry Kane are locked in a battle for the title of leading marksman with the Egypt worldwide four ahead of his England counterpart on 29.

The key to the game may well be how Spurs deal with City's style of play. Then on Tuesday, Liverpool beat City 2-1 to knock them out of the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage.

More importantly it would restore parity for the stand outside of the season.

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.

Kane was eventually awarded his 25th goal after the 2-1 win over Stoke City, with the goal initially given to team-mate Christian Eriksen. Palace sit in 17th, three points ahead of Southampton.

City need 12 points from their remaining six games to set a new record for Premier League points. Salah may not be too concerned - he will reach 40 goals for his club in all competitions this season if he scores against Bournemouth.
