Premier League updates from Wembley

Mousa Dembele of Tottenham Hotspur is challenged by Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City at Wembley Stadium

"I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City".

An unlikely defeat by Manchester United at home to bottom club West Bromwich on Sunday would secure City's third title in seven seasons, but a win against Swansea next week will be enough to put them out of reach.

"I am not concerned, we must now be ready for Tuesday".

For weeks it has been a case of when, rather than if, City win the title and it is nearly certain to happen within the next week.

Manchester City now is one win away from the Premier League title and Saturday's match was a crucial step towards that goal in addition to re-instituting the good vibes that have surrounded this team for the whole season last week aside. Guardiola may rotate his squad more often next season and not rely so heavily on the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, who has missed just five games all campaign.

Guardiola will be determined to ensure that is the case, with the Catalan coach having endured a rare blip of late which has delivered three successive defeats across all competitions. 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 absence of Heung-Min Son definitely made it easier as he may be Tottenham's most risky wide attacker at the moment and this may have played a role in why Pep felt comfortable doing this.

"The players have my total respect". These guys are fantastic, awesome - they are incredible.


With Guardiola on the cusp of winning his first league title in England, to follow titles in Spain and Germany, he was asked where this trophy would rank. "We did it...we nearly did it!"

"Come on City! Champions!"

Three minutes later, Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris sent Sterling flying, although replays suggested the contact was just outside the area.

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

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.

Running onto Harry Kane's defence-splitting pass, Eriksen's shot hit City's Aymeric Laporte and deflected back onto the Tottenham midfielder on its way past Ederson.

On return for the second half, Spurs came with a zeal to overturn the result in their favour, as they mounted pressure on their visitors, but all their efforts were unproductive in the early minutes of the second stanza.

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.
