Manchester City see of Spurs to take step closer to title

Christian Eriksen fortuitously halved the deficit three minutes before the interval and an improved second-half performance from Spurs left City in jeopardy of surrendering a two-goal lead just as they did in last week's Manchester derby.

City went close again when Kevin De Bruyne sent a rocket shot wide from the edge of the box and the only surprise was Tottenham survived until the 22 minute when, at last, the Blues went ahead. I think you can improve but you need to be born with this character and this mental strength.

City are just one win away from being crowned Premier League champions. That will delay the title party a little longer, but they are still going to win the league - it is just a matter of time.

Day passes, which let you add Sky Sports channels for 24 hours, start at £6.99 a day, with a weekly pass starting from £10.99, and no locking in to a contract.

City arrived at Wembley licking their wounds having been dumped out of the Champions League four days after Manchester United dramatically denied them the title.

However, Pep Guardiola's men showed why they have been compared with the all-time great teams of the Premier League era by inflicting Spurs' first league defeat since the sides last met at the Etihad in December. Since that loss, Tottenham is undefeated with an 11-0-3 record including a current stretch of six straight wins.

They could win 28 top-flight matches in a single season for only the second time in their history - the previous occasion was marked by the famous 3-2 victory against QPR on the final day of the 2011-12 campaign.

"The pundits in November, they said it was already done - it was impossible that City, if they hadn't lost in six months, it's impossible for them to drop points", he said. The highest total to date is Chelsea's tally of 95 in 2004-05. Harry Kane has of course, been key to this run, and has scored 25 goals in the league this season.

The South Korea worldwide has now reverted to a wide role and is likely to line up directly against Walker, who left Tottenham a year ago, in the Premier League on Saturday.

That is certainly an achievement that can not be overlooked, but the club's European failures in the last two weeks will pose questions about City's outlook on the continent next season.
