Full-time at Wembley Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur 1-3 Manchester City

Grant SmithApr 15, 2018

Leaders Manchester City shrugged off a bitterly disappointing week to beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday and move to within three points of sealing the Premier League title.

Having found form again against Spurs, you'd bet on City setting more records before this historic season comes to an end. "City are only human, so they can make mistakes".

Man City team: Ederson, Walker, Kompany (C), Laporte, Delph, Gundogan, Silva, De Bruyne, Sane, Sterling, Jesus.

Mauricio Pochettino's men had won their previous six Premier League matches and were on a 14-match unbeaten run in the league.

City were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and missed the chance to seal top spot against rivals Manchester United over the last week but Pep Guardiola's men put on a sizzling display at Wembley to get back to winning ways.

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.

Leroy Sane nearly gave City the lead in stunning fashion after four minutes, crashing a back-post volley against the post after Sterling's delivery from the right.

Kane trailed Salah by five goals up until Thursday, when he was awarded Spurs' victor at Stoke City last weekend after an appeal.

Then, finally, Spurs' luck ran out as Jesus fired a low shot in and though an initially unsighted Lloris kept the ball out, Sterling was on hand to hammer the ball into the roof of the net from four yards.

Harry Kane will be heading into the contest hoping to further his challenge against Mohamed Salah for the Premier League's Golden Boot, a battle that has been kept interesting after Kane was awarded Tottenham's second goal at Stoke after an appeal.

All Spurs could muster by way of a response was a stoppage-time drive from Lucas Moura as the hosts were left to come to terms with their first league defeat since December 16.

The pre-match build-up starts at 7pm on Sky Sports Premier League (7.30pm on Sky Sports Main Event), before kick-off at 7.45pm. Manchester City, meanwhile, can win the title with a home victory over Swansea on Nissan Super Sunday.
