Mauricio Pochettino concedes Tottenham were off the pace against Manchester City

Nevertheless, Pochettino expressed his disappointment that his side had made such a poor start to the match. He said: "We began badly".

Rather than seeing if Manchester City wins the English Premier League, Pep Guardiola will be on the golf course. After what happened this week, to come here and play Tottenham in London, one of the best teams with one of the best managers and play the way we did...after 15 minutes, I said we will be champions.

While it was a clear foul, the contact appeared to be made just outside the area, yet, to Tottenham's fury, Jonathan Moss awarded a penalty that Gundogan slotted home easily.

Pochettino said: "Sometimes decisions go for us, sometimes against us".

Liverpool is 10 points above fifth-placed Chelsea, which hit back from two goals down at relegation-haunted Southampton to win 3-2 and keep alive its hopes of a top-four finish.

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.

After last week's surprising defeat at home to crosstown rival Manchester United and two losses this month to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals, the Citizens were eager to get back on track, reports Efe.

"Mo knows what this means and the way we play suits him", added Klopp. "We have plenty still to come".

Spurs survived an early scare when Leroy Sane sent a volley against the upright with Hugo Lloris well beaten in the opening five - a harbinger of what was in store.

Watch every touch from Kevin De Bruyne's impressive display in City's 3-1 against Tottenham at Wembley. He finished well, driving his shot beneath Lloris who didn't get off his line quick enough to genuinely narrow the angle.

Echoes of last weekend's defeat to Manchester United might just have spurred City forward as they went in search of a third. It might have been harsh as Sterling was fouled outside the box - but, in fairness, it was all City deserved for the danger they created.

Tottenham was in the game when Christian Eriksen scored to reduce the deficit to 2-1.

It gave the home side some belief that had been sorely lacking up to that point, and the team of the season did not look quite so invincible.

Lloris compounded Spurs' problems moments later when Sterling was played in and taken out by Lloris.

But as Spurs looked like they might make amends for a bad first half, City found an escape via a rare foray forward: Lloris was tested from range and couldn't hold on to the ball.

City regained control after half-time and should have been out of sight as Jesus scuffed badly wide and Sterling fared no better with a woeful close-range miss.

However, it quickly became clear that their three successive defeats was not weighing on City.
