Man City One Win Away From Title After Defeating Spurs

Midfielder Dele Alli, who scored in his side's 2-0 win over City in the same fixture last season, felt the matches against the top six sides in the League offers more space for him to exploit.

The defeat for Spurs sees them surrender a two-game home winning run against the Citizens.

David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne were phenomenal in midfield, pulling the strings and directing traffic every minute of the game, helping their team get into better attacking positions. "After what happened and how the people reacted, these guys are fantastic. It's incredible. They have been unbelievable". Despite wins over United, Liverpool and Arsenal at Wembley, they were outplayed and outsmarted by City on the night. Manchester United is a -575 favorite on Sunday hosting West Bromwich Albion (+1600 to win, +575 to draw).

But the Catalan produced the flawless counter by introducing Nicolas Otamendi as a second half substitute to tighten up the City defence. Ilkay Gundogan made no mistake, sending Lloris the wrong way to increase City's lead.

Manchester City's season took a blow with defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday. "For him, for the boys, it's fantastic and today he certainly didn't look like he doesn't want to score in the next few games".

Mohamed Salah has set his sights on breaking the Premier League record for most goals in a single season, Soccerway reports.

All of Liverpool's prolific front three were on target as Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino struck either side of Salah's deft header to take their combined tally for the season to 82.

Mauricio Pochettino's side, on the other hand, was disappointing in what was a great chance for them to cement their credentials as one of the most unsafe teams in the league. Though the foul was right on the edge of the box, the referee pointed to the spot and Gündogan hit a ideal penalty kick to make it 2-0 in the 25th minute. That, and the fact that they overcame the setback of those losses, and put themselves in position to clinch the league easily, bodes well for their future as a team, and shows Pep Guardiola has them making great strides in the right direction and that they would be the team to beat in the Premier League and one of the best in Europe next season as well.

Chelsea has so thoroughly owned Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge that one wouldn't expect that to change when the Blues have a chance to re-open the race for a top-four spot in the English Premier League.

"It's still five games to go".

Chelsea are fifth and Southampton are third-bottom.

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.
