Manchester City vs Hull City 8 April 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Hazard has his penalty saved before scoring their second goal from the rebound.

Pochettino did not confront that statement directly but, with his team seven points behind the league leaders, made the point that the title was Chelsea's to lose.

Spurs, now second in the league, completed a remarkable comeback to defeat Swansea City 3-1 on Wednesday, while Chelsea remained on course for their fifth league title with a 2-1 win over fourth-placed Manchester City.

But Conte admits that is not an advantage for his players, insisting they can only focus on their own results for the remaining eight matches.

Gerrard who was involved in BT Sport's coverage of Chelsea's victory over City said: "You can see how animated Pep Guardiola is getting through the whole game". "That's the target. We have some hard games but we are ready for everything". A minute into stoppage-time, South Korea forward Son Heung-Min bagged his 16th goal of the season with a clinical finish and there was still time for Christian Eriksen's strike to put the seal on Tottenham's fifth successive win. "I don't know if the way we played was attractive but the most important thing is to win games".

Third-placed Liverpool are also looking over their shoulder as they prepare to travel to Stoke City. I am always happy when my players can play.

"We were good but not good enough".

"In the Champions League qualifiers - especially in attack - against Steaua Bucharest when we won 6-0 [sic, it was 5-0]". But I try. I push sometimes with words, sometimes with my hands.

"The Premier League is gone and now it will be a battle to qualify for the Champions League".

City are fourth in the league following defeat at Chelsea on Wednesday, all but ending hopes of a league title in the Catalan's debut campaign in England.

Pep Guardiola aimed a small dig at Chelsea following an alleged tunnel row after Manchester City's 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge this week.

"We've got a mini league for us now and it starts with Hull (on Saturday)".

Guardiola, who felt City's performance was better than in Sunday's draw at Arsenal, said: "Absolutely (City were better than Chelsea)".

Can Man City win the Premier League next season?

"The way we played, I'm so satisfied".
