Man City on verge of title as Salah on target for Liverpool

  • Print

Manchester City emerged from a trough of despair to beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 and move to within three points of the Premier League title at Wembley on Saturday.After they were beaten by arch-rivals Manchester United a week earlier from two goals up when victory would have crowned them kings of England, then knocked out of Europe by Liverpool, some suggested that City were beginning to flag.

But Pep Guardiola's side made a mockery of such talk to outclass a Spurs side unbeaten in the league since December. Victory, sealed with goals by Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling, lifted them to 87 points from 33 games.

An unlikely defeat for Manchester United at home to bottom club West Bromwich Albion on Sunday would secure City's third title in seven seasons but a win against Swansea City next week will be enough to put them out of reach."After 15 minutes I said we'd be champions, after what happened and we reacted," said Guardiola, who will be on the golf course with his son when United play on Sunday.
