Manchester City got back on track against Tottenham, winning 3-1 and preventing the depressive spiral we've all experienced recently from continuing any further.

"I am happy with the way we behaved".

A two-goal lead was in peril at Wembley against opponents starting to take advantage of the soft centre at the heart of City's defence.

"We only started to compete after 2-0 down, we scored, but of course over 90 minutes Manchester City were better". The Lilywhites victory over Chelsea a fortnight ago was followed up by a gutsy away performance at Stoke City and, the combination of results has enabled them to move 10-points clear of Chelsea with just 6 fixtures left to play.

"The important thing is to have the chance to win at home".

"No [I won't be watching United] I have golf game", he said.

The visitors notched a pair of goals in a span of three minutes of the first half, the first coming in the 22nd minute when Gabriel Jesus scored past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris after receiving a pass from Kompany.

Having crashed out of the UEFA Champions League competition at the quarterfinal stage last Wednesday, the Citizens stepped up their game to claim maximum points against Spurs, who are in the race to finish among the top four teams ahead of the current EPL champions, Chelsea.

In the 52nd minute, Referee Jon Moss stopped the game for a moment after Dele Alli was knocked down and needed medical attention before the game resumed in the 54th minute.

Replays suggested the initial contact between Lloris and City's impressive attacker was just outside the penalty area, but the Tottenham manager refused to use it as an excuse after the 3-1 loss. "We had the first one against United, we could not do it and now we have another one against Swansea with our 60,000 people and we are going to try to be champion".

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 risky teams in the league. Sterling effort went wide in the 7th minute of the game as Manchester City add more pressure to the home team. "It was more important that we picked ourselves up after a hard week", Valverde said.
