Tottenham to play remaining home games at Wembley

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said there is a five-horse race for the Premier League title this season.

City manager Pep Guardiola insists he is unbothered by the prospect, but it will certainly be in his thoughts when he selects a starting line-up and if they lose it could well be an excuse he draws upon.

The trip to White Hart Lane, however, was a reality check for the Catalan as Spurs executed a ideal pressing game to inflict City's first defeat of the season and Guardiola's first defeat in English football. I like to do it better, to make a better club so they can believe that we are strong enough to do better things. He can answer that question but I don't know what happens. It was a bold, courageous endeavour, but anyone who has had any kind of work done on their house - a new conservatory, an extension - knows that it nearly always ends up three times as expensive and takes twice as long, and that's if you're lucky. Guardiola said. "These are important".

Tottenham haven't won a game in the Champions League this season following a 2-1 loss to Inter Milan at the San Siro before a 4-2 defeat by FC Barcelona at Wembley.

"That's why maybe the games against the contenders are becoming so important".

Reacting about his future at the Champions League winners on Wednesday night, Lopetegui said: "This question is not for me". Messi is missing for Barcelona and they have their own selection issues to contend with.

If City can finish top of the table again, we will become the first side in a decade to win back-to-back Premier League titles. And of course always when we arrive at like a final game, we always fail.

"We saw it at West Ham last week - we saw it at Cardiff a couple of weeks ago and they've paid for that inability to do that in Europe, which looks like a Champions League exit now".

But Guardiola rejected the notion that last term's player of the season would not be risked in a game the league leaders go into only two points better off than Spurs.

"To play in Wembley, Milton Keynes - different circumstances, so we have to say "come on, if we are realistic, we need to celebrate the position we are in and receive praise for that" but it doesn't matter if we don't get praise".

Now Tottenham fans will have to continue to travel across north London for the home fixtures against Chelsea, Southampton, Burnley, Bournemouth and Wolves, with their two remaining home Champions League group games already scheduled to take place at the national stadium. The mentality is to win and to reach the last level. "We had 100 points because we were focused on all the games".
