Premier League updates from Wembley

Premier League updates from Wembley

Ilkay Gundogan entered in his stead and did a more than serviceable job as the deep midfielder, even converting a penalty opportunity expertly. And City will secure its third title since 2012 by beating Swansea next Sunday.

Taking a shot at critics who slammed City's recent blip, Guardiola said: "People said it was a big failure last week".

'The most important thing for me is that I'm getting into positions, ' he said. The Sky Blues didn't let any self doubt hinder them at Wembley Stadium and showed the quality that has propelled them to the top of the Premier League.

"City are a great side and everyone's going to get stronger, like they did this season".

Tottenham still occupies the fourth Champions League spot, although Chelsea closed the gap to seven points after coming from behind to beat Southampton 3-2.

Huddersfield are seven points better off; Socceroos star Aaron Mooy's side leaving it until injury time to clinch a 1-0 victory over Watford thanks to Tom Ince scoring the victor.

Swansea moved five points ahead of Southampton after a 1-1 home draw with Everton.

Burnley earned their fifth straight league win with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at Turf Moor to boost their chances of possible Europa League qualification.

Liverpool's bold approach has contrasted to most when faced with the might of City's attacking arsenal and Jurgen Klopp has been rewarded with three wins in four meetings with the runaway Premier League leaders this season.

Vincent Kompany's long pass caught Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez flat-footed and Jesus made him pay as he raced clear to fire past Lloris.

Christian Eriksen reduced the arrears shortly before half-time but Tottenham were unable to capitalise upon a shaky opening to the second period from City, who sealed the points through Raheem Sterling 18 minutes from time.

Both sides continued to put up impressive play to ensure the game swing in their favour, but it was City who got lucky.

"We started to play after we conceded the second goal". The champions-elect still boast a 13-point lead at the top of the Premier League with six games remaining.

But they wasted no time in shutting up their critics and were 2-0 up by just the 25th minute as they cruised to a 3-1 win which ended Spurs' record of 14 games unbeaten.

"Today we scored the goals and we defended better".

Salah alone has 30 goals in the league, five more than Kane.

"The moment he can increase his average chances to score a goal, he will become one of the best players in the world", the Catalan coach told reporters.

Chelsea trailed to goals by Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek at St Mary's but Olivier Giroud came on as a 61st-minute substitute for the visitors to spark a stunning turnaround.

But the champions scored three goals in eight minutes.
