Manchester City bounces back against Spurs to edge closer to title
Apr 16, 2018, 04:44
After last week's surprising defeat at home to crosstown rival Manchester United and two losses this month to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals, the Citizens were eager to get back on track, reports Efe.
Victory, sealed with goals by Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling, lifted the club to 87 points from 33 games. "The mental toughness of this team is unbelievable". Though the eventual score was 3-1, City had at least three more good chances to widen the margin, and it was just their inability to find the finish that let them down at times.
"There's nothing better. Long may it continue and hopefully, every single Cityzen around the world parties for us tonight".
Nevertheless, Pochettino expressed his disappointment that his side had made such a poor start to the match. Despite wins over United, Liverpool and Arsenal at Wembley, they were outplayed and outsmarted by City on the night.

BARCELONA (Reuters) - Barcelona responded to its shock Champions League elimination by AS Roma by beating Valencia 2-1 on Saturday in a subdued atmosphere at the Nou Camp, setting a La Liga record run of 39 games unbeaten and taking the side ever closer to another title.
Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring in the 22nd minute after Vincent Kompany's long pass opened up Tottenham's defense.
Three minutes later, Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris sent Sterling flying, although replays suggested the contact was just outside the area. "There are plenty of things to think about after this game". 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. They took four points off of Guardiola's side and finished above them in the league.
With five games left for Spurs to play in the Premier League this season, they sit in fourth spot and hold a seven-point lead over fifth placed Chelsea.
