City rebounds to rout Spurs

EPL Week Betting Preview: Man City Slim Favorite Facing Tottenham Tough job for bruised Man City

Manchester City bounced back from three straight defeats in all competitions to claim a crucial 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

Despite their defeat against Manchester City, Spurs still look likely to qualify for next season's Champions League, being seven points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea in the Premier League. We deserved to win these games but it didn't happen. Similarly, the second goal resulted from a swift counter-attack that eventually saw Hugo Lloris come way off his line and foul Sterling to concede a penalty (although contact happened outside the box), which was dispatched easily by Gundogan. The decision allowed Gundogan to step up and send Lloris diving the wrong way, pushing City into a 2-0 lead in the 25th minute.

All of their prolific front three were on target as Mohamed Salah took his tally for the season to 40 - becoming only the third Liverpool player ever to reach that mark.

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

With five games to go the points record (95, Chelsea 2004/05) wins record (30, Chelsea 2016/17) and goals scored record (103, Chelsea 2009/10) are all up for grabs.

Ilkay Gundogan has been charged with the task of covering Fernandinho's absence for Manchester City against Tottenham.

Christian Eriksen reduced the arrears in fortunate circumstances, his initial shot blocked by Aymeric Laporte before deflecting back off the Dane and past the stranded Ederson, with Sterling adding the third in the second-half.

Virginia scored four of the last six goals in the last 12 minutes, allowing them to tie the game at 6-6. The Blue Devils earned bragging rights with a hard-fought, 6-5 win.

Sterling - who won the first-half spot kick despite replays showing Lloris' rash lunge made contact with him fractionally outside the box - was frustrated by passing up opportunities as his did in the Manchester derby, despite eventually scoring his 17th league goal of the season.

Club-record signing Coutinho then delivered an outswinging corner from which Samuel Umtiti headed in Barca's second in the 51st minute, shortly after Gerard Pique had saved Umtiti's blushes by clearing a shot from Valencia forward Santi Mina off the line following a slip by the France defender. "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 unsafe teams in the league.

City missed the services of midfielder Fernandinho, who begun his two-game match ban after accumulating ten yellow cards.

"It's more hard (to win in England)".
