Tottenham 1 Manchester City 3: Leaders battle back to winning ways

Hugo Lloris

However, by conceding eight times in three games, Guardiola's men unveiled a weakness that hadn't been exposed by their Premier League rivals for the vast majority of the season.

However, Guardiola believes delivering the first Premier League title of his reign was the priority for his second season in charge.

Despite completely dominating the first-half, there were some nervy moments as Tottenham got back into the match until Raheem Sterling scored City's decisive third. One more victory and Guardiola will win his first Premier League.

It was a morale-boosting win for City after the disappointment of Tuesday's defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The dominant start was deservedly rewarded with a 22nd-minute lead and it was not out of the usual Manchester City playbook.

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

But despite the prospect of Spurs - unbeaten in the league since December - inflicting a fourth straight defeat at, City bounced back with a performance of champions to deliver an emphatic reminder of their class and why they are, once again, 16 points clear at the top of the table.

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.

Guardiola admitted he will not watch United's game on Sunday, though he does not expect them to slip up against the league's bottom-placed club. "It's incredible. They have been unbelievable".

A long ball from Kyle Walker saw Gabriel Jesus outpace Davinson Sanchez to race in on goal and finish coolly.

There was no sign of City's recent troubles as they immediately found their groove and could have led with only three minutes on the clock.

Sterling broke clear this time and, when Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris charged out and took out the England man with a rash tackle, referee Jonathan Moss pointed to the spot.

Manchester City will travel to Wembley to face Tottenham today in Matchweek 34 of the EPL hoping to end the trend of losing every game in the past 11 days.

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

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. 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.

"Now we have a mini-league for six games and we are going to try and close it".
