Manchester City bounce back to put one hand on Premier League title

Manchester City bounce back to put one hand on Premier League title”

However, there is added significance to Saturday's clash at Selhurst Park, with both sides looking to secure their Premier League status for next season.

Guardiola, who won La Liga with Barcelona and the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich, as well as two Champions Leagues with Barça, pointed to the Premier League's physicality and agreed that he had answered critics who said his methods would not work in England.

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday as Manchester United crashed to a shock 1-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion.

Even if United doesn't lose to the league's bottom team, City can still seal the trophy before playing again. Winning at Stamford Bridge gave us a feeling of, "OK, against the last champions, we are able to come here and play".

Swansea moved five points ahead of Southampton after drawing with Everton 1-1.

West Brom is dead last in the Premier League, now nine points back of safety with four matches to play.

"I said after 10-15 minutes we will be champions", said Guardiola of his side's fast start.

"Today we scored the goals and we defended better".

The 23-year-old, who has been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year, was criticised for missing chances in the defeat by United and also wasted opportunities against Spurs before smashing home from close range in the 72nd minute.

The notion of anything resembling an actual "race" for the Premier League title has always been abandoned due to City's relentless form, but things could have been different back in December.

"Of course it can happen". Silva is probably the finest playmaker ever to grace the Premier League and Guardiola's City would have no chance of looking so picture ideal without him. "The last week was tough for us", Guardiola said.

City's main quest in the final weeks of the season will be to break the records for the most points, wins and goals in a single PL season to hammer home their dominance.

Tottenham heads into this game unbeaten in 14 league games, having recorded six straight wins in the English top-flight.

Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring in the 22nd minute after Vincent Kompany's long pass opened up Tottenham's defense.

A tight game then, this, with Roy Keane, David Beckham and Ryan Giggs never fully going at a City team capable of punishing space in an instant. We can not forget he was out one month injured, he made a huge effort because after the tackle from Ashley Young against United the problem started.
