EPL: City beat Spurs, edge closer to title

EPL Week Betting Preview: Man City Slim Favorite Facing Tottenham

"The amount of goals, chances, points, to do that in the Premier League with the contenders that we have it is because the players are so, so good".

Here, we look back at some of the key factors behind a dominant triumph.

However, the Gunners now risk the ignominy of finishing the season seventh behind Burnley after a fifth consecutive away league defeat as they lost 2-1 at Newcastle yesterday.

The last time that these two clubs met in a Premier League clash was back in December.

Another City player who has been outstanding this season.

Pep Guardiola's men would have made it four, but a timely clearance from Davinson Sanchez stopped Spurs from conceding their fourth of the night. A22-goal haulin all competitions - achieved despite some galling, high-profile misses of late - represents the best season of a career flourishing all over again under Guardiola's guidance. "We will see. He has done great, he has had an fantastic season and has gone ahead, so we will see", Kane told Sky Sports. A dutiful cog in the machine during the opening weeks, the Belgium midfielder kicked into gear and City's season duly took flight.

- City need 11 goals (2.2 per game) to break the 103-goal record, held by Chelsea (2009/10).

Manchester City crowned English Premier League champions
West Brom caretaker Darren Moore vowed to keep battling relegation after grabbing an unlikely survival lifeline at Old Trafford . They can surpass Chelsea's Premier League record of 30 (2016-17) by winning three of their remaining five fixtures.

It truly was a heartbreaking result for Manchester City, though the cardiovascular damage was hardly irreparable. It is a level he has maintained with startling regularity.

While City's morale is down and the Premier League title all but won, Spurs have something to play in this clash.

The victory help Pep Guardiola extend their lead over second-placed Manchester United to 16 points. A defeat might have prompted a serious challenge from Jose Mourinho's men, but goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi secured a deserved 2-1 win after the visitors controlled the majority of the action. The England global won the penalty for the visitors' second - although replays showed a free-kick would have been the correct decision - and scored the third, while taking more shots (five) than any other player on the pitch.

After a quiet start to the second half, City could have extended their lead in the 64th minute when Jesus broke through on goal, but the forward fired well wide with only Lloris to beat. "My private life is very hard for me but my son is fighting and getting better".

Otherwise, Guardiola has a strong squad, but less on morale to face Spurs in the Premier League.

Having bent most weeks of the season to their will, City picked a awful time to falter at the beginning of April.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino remained upbeat about his side's prospects this season, despite their 3-1 home defeat against Manchester City on Saturday evening.
