Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino unconcerned by Manchester City's ability to dominate the Premier League next season

City went to Wembley on the back of three consecutive defeats after Liverpool had beaten them twice to knock them out of the Champions League while rivals Manchester United denied them the title after coming back from 2-0 down to win at the Etihad.

It was a morale-boosting win for City after the disappointment of Tuesday's defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarterfinals. We have to win it at home.

Ilkay Gundogan scored from the penalty spot just three minutes later after a rash approach from Lloris, although it appeared to have taken place outside the box.

"At this level, when you play a team like Manchester City, from the beginning to the end you need to compete at your best level".

"What a number. Wow!" exclaimed manager Jurgen Klopp on hearing Salah is the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush 31 years ago to score 40 in a season.

City raced out of the traps and were nearly ahead after four minutes, Sterling driving down the right to pick out Leroy Sane, who crashed a first-time volley off the post with Hugo Lloris beaten.

Speaking after the game, and quoted on the Sky Sports website, the Spurs boss said: "There's nothing to worry about".

This was incredibly effective and the first goal was a simple ball over the top from Kompany to Jesus, who timed his run perfectly and was able to beat Tottenham centerback Davinson Sanchez for pace.

Rob Gronkowski will not attend start of offseason workouts
But Brady, who is traveling with his family, now isn't believed to be thinking about not playing next season; Gronk definitely is. There yet to be any clear indication of whether Gronkowski will return to action for the 2018 campaign.


Christian Eriksen pulled one back for the Lilywhites on the stroke of half time to make it 2-1, but Pochettino was left to reflect on a disastrous opening 25 minutes where Tottenham couldn't cope with the visitors and found themselves two behind.

It would take an almighty collapse for Spurs to finish outside the top-four at this stage, but Chelsea will be hoping that their opponents tomorrow, namely Manchester City, will be do them a huge favour by taking all three-points away from Wembley.

When it happens City will have not only dominated the PL "their way" but they have also developed that winning mentality and toughness to continue to succeed.

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.

Tottenham, who had gone 14 matches unbeaten in the league since losing 4-1 at City in December, are seven points above fifth-placed Chelsea in the race for Champions League qualification.

The Barca coach praised his players for putting the Roma defeat behind them. Overall, I though City's attack was much more direct than we are used to seeing.

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