What Manchester City must do to break three Premier League records

What Manchester City must do to break three Premier League records

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino blamed a lacklustre opening for their 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Echoes of last weekend's defeat to Manchester United might just have spurred City forward as they went in search of a third.

To make matters worse for Saints, Huddersfield and Crystal Palace secured vital wins later in the day to leave Southampton five points adrift of safety with just five games left to save themselves. Winning titles in every league is important, with Barcelona was special.

A tumultuous return from the worldwide break for Manchester City has come to an end.

Rarely has the race for the Golden Boot been as captivating as what we're now witnessing between Mo Salah and Harry Kane. However, Danny Rose will miss the game after picking up a minor calf strain but is expected to return in time for Tuesday's trip to Brighton. Kyle Walker-Peters is another absentee, but apart from them, Pochettino will have a strong squad to spare.

Guardiola's men had done enough to be out of sight but Spurs got a lifeline just before half-time when Eriksen netted for a third game in a row.

Pep Guardiola inserted Aymeric Laporte along his backline in place of Nicolas Otamendi and was forced to deal with the suspension of Fernandinho due to yellow card accumulation.

This season the 18-consecutive victories between August and December set a new Premier League record and the has spent a total of 240 days at the summit of the league since the start of the season.

Chelsea is unbeaten in its last 30 home matches against Tottenham, dating back to February 1990.

Quoted on the club's website, he said: "When you play against these type of teams - and for me, Manchester City is the best in the Premier League - you can not concede and provide the opportunity for them to play like they played in the first 25 minutes".

HurriKane on the South Coast?

"Harry Kane and [Sergio] Aguero, I said before, they are strikers they play number nine", Salah pointed out to CNN, per the Evening Standard. Kane, however, got back to scoring ways, amid plenty of controversies last week.

Third-placed Liverpool beat Bournemouth 3-0 at home with Mohamed Salah taking his goal tally for the season to 40 in all competitions - making him only the third Liverpool player to achieve that mark in a single campaign. Three points against City would be critical for that plight. Since then City have faced United, who came from behind to beat them at the Etihad and Liverpool, who did a similar comeback victory.

Despite losing 5-1 on aggregate to Liverpool in the Champions League and suffering a 3-2 defeat to neighbours Manchester United, City led 2-0 inside 25 minutes at Wembley after Jesus sprinted onto Vincent Kompany's pass to score and Gundogan converted from the penalty spot after goalkeeper Hugo Lloris had felled Sterling.
