Pep Guardiola makes the most realistic prediction about the EPL title race

Pep Guardiola makes the most realistic prediction about the EPL title race

"The other attacking players, like Son [Heung-Min] and Lucas Moura, are more unsafe when Kane is not there", Whelan exclusively told Football Insider.

Mauricio Pochettino's side face Manchester City in the second leg of their quarter-final tie on Wednesday night, Son Heung-Min's goal giving the North London side a 1-0 advantage to take to the Etihad. "Incredible numbers and it shows how consistent we are".

Spurs boss Pochettino said of Alli: 'We'll have the last training session then decide if he starts or is on the bench'. We did it in a really good manner. Harry Kane, their main goal threat, is out for an extended period of time with an ankle injury he suffered in the first leg of this tie.

"That's the mentality, just keep going and the chance will come".

This was playground football.

For all the goals scored on the night, this was about the one that wasn't.

"One thing really stuck with me".

And given the tight nature of this season's battle with Jurgen Klopp's side, Kompany says he his sharing his experiences of City's first two Premier League wins and not last season's procession to glory.

Instead, City broke to seal the three points on the counter-attack when the outstanding Kevin de Bruyne teed up Gabriel Jesus to make it 3-1.

City's Champions League jinx has continued for another season, and it was made even crueler by knowing they deserved to go through and thought they had before VAR denied them.

Midfielder De Bruyne and England star Sterling signed for City within just over a month of each other in 2015 and have been at the forefront of the club's successful spell under Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola said Manchester City's next three matches will go a long way to defining their season as they chase an unprecedented Quadruple.

This was the moment Son truly arrived as a world-class player. 'Every game is so big at this stage of the season. Llorente, only on for the injured Sissoko, turned out to the hero for Spurs, as they dug deep and rode their luck at City. Their first encounter came in October 2016 when Pochettino watched his side clinch a 2-0 victory at White Hart Lane, now revamped into the "Tottenham Hotspur Stadium". But they did it.

"At the same time it is nice to see them".

Spurs will play at the Etihad Stadium in the second leg of a Champions League quarter-final, which they now lead 1-0 on aggregate courtesy of Heung-Min Son's strike in the first meeting.

Write this Tottenham team off at your peril.
