Pep Guardiola speaks: Talking to Sky Sports, the metropolis boss seems in slightly irritable mood when he is asked a slightly ludicrous question about “how important” winning today’s game was. “A lot,” he admits that. “A lot important. We can’t manage to drop points therefore we must keep fighting the final. After defeat on Wednesday the past two days were very tough for folks. The trouble members of the squad had was incredible.”

He also seems slightly affronted by a question in connection with the immense character showed by his players today. “They have Two or three years to do that,” he said. “This team is incredible in order that they don’t need to show me their character. I am aware their character.”

Post-match reflection: While City got the 3 points, they had the advantages of a little bit of good luck. They are able to conceivably have had a lack of success awarded against them for the Kyle Walker hand-ball. On Sky Sports, Graeme Souness thinks it’d have been a harsh decision, while his colleague Gary Neville said at that time it ought to definitely are actually a problem. City also lost Kevin De Bruyne to a injury that appears want it might rule him out for that which remains of this year.

Bernardo Silva speaks: “We knew from then on game on friday against Tottenham that people wished to put in a response for our fans while keeping the race to your title alive,” he tells Sky Sports. “It was very tough because we was missing enough time to relax and yes it was warm outside. If Practical goal mistaken now we have four games to look now and then we need to win every one of them.”

Asked if Manchester City’s players could experience the tension from the stands: “Maybe slightly,” according to him. “We weren’t nervous but we felt the climate as well as the support. They [the fans] were amazing and now we have to thank them.”

Asked regarding how he feels playing such exalted company, Phil Foden says: “Every player I have fun with within this team – I recently idolize them. This person Bernardo didn’t stop running all the time.” Actually is well liked praises Sergio Aguero and Silva for any part within the build-up for their goal.

Upon being presented with his Man of your Match award by Foden, Silva promptly hands it back, saying he’d like his young team-mate to have it because he deserves it. Awww.

74 min: With about Quarter of an hour to be, Manchester City maintain their one-goal lead but aren’t looking particularly comfortable. Easily was Mauricio Pochettino, I’d be thinking about adding a bit of “Llorente” for the Tottenham equation to give City’s knackered defenders a tad bit more to consider. They’re inside of a real dither and Lucas Moura almost takes advantage because gallops upon a good pass from deep that splits both centre-backs. He’s eventually foiled in his tries to score by a mix of Ederson and John Stones.
