Man City Close In On EPL Title With Win Over Spurs

Mousa Dembele of Tottenham Hotspur is challenged by Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City at Wembley Stadium

Speaking to reporters at Wembley, Pochettino said: "We started the game off really, really badly".

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admitted his team paid the price for a slow start in their 3-1 defeat to Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday night.

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

"We congratulate them because they are very close to winning the Premier League and after 14 games unbeaten for us, today was a hard game to play". Since then City have faced United, who came from behind to beat them at the Etihad and Liverpool, who did a similar comeback victory.

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.

City will clinch a third Premier League crown since 2012 if United fails to beat West Bromwich Albion or loses to Bournemouth on Thursday.

Spurs reduced the deficit with four minutes remaining in the half as Aymeric Laporte's attempted clearance hit Christian Eriksen and sailed into the back of the net.

A brush fire was being fought Friday evening in the area of Youngstown Ridge Road in Ligonier, a Westmoreland dispatcher said. On April 12 at approximately 1:10 p.m., firefighters responded to Woodville Road in Brandywine for the report of brush fire.

However, this time there was no second-half collapse as City should have ran out even more convincing victor. Exclaimed manager Jurgen Klopp on hearing Salah is the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush 31 years ago to score 40 in a season. Because of the way we conceded the goals, yes, I am disappointed but [there is] nothing to worry about.

Chasing Salah to claim the Premier League Golden Boot for a third consecutive season, Kane will be desperate to get on the scoresheet and close the gap.

Mauricio Pochettino's side, on the other hand, was disappointing in what was a great chance for them to cement their credentials as one of the most unsafe teams in the league. 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.

The Dane has played an important role in Spurs' top-four challenge this season. "It's still five games to go, there's a big chance, let's see".

Crystal Palace had been set to drop into the bottom three on goal difference prior to Chelsea's comeback. The Citizens needed to eradicate these doubts, and they did, putting in a brilliant performance, that led to their comprehensive win.

Swansea City are directly above Southampton after drawing 1-1 at home to Everton.

Burnley still stay seventh after a 2-1 win over Leicester City.
