          Phil Foden's first Premier League goal moved Manchester City back to the top of the PL table as they claimed a 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur.

          Four days on from their dramatic quarter-final exit at the hands of Spurs, Foden's fifth-minute header sealed a priceless victory for Pep Guardiola's side on an incredibly tense afternoon at the Etihad Stadium.

          It was a game that cranked up almost unbearable levels of tension in the last 15 minutes as City protected a victory that could prove the difference between winning and losing the title they secured with a historic 100 points last season.

          Following a 10th successive league win, City are one point clear of Liverpool, who travel to Cardiff City on Sunday, with both having played 34 matches.  

          Spurs remain in third on 67 points, with Arsenal, who also play on Sunday, one point behind.

          Pep Guardiola: "It's an important win in the race for the Premier League. If we drop point, we cannot fight until the end. It was tight, Spurs had more chances than the previous two games, but the effort the players had after a tough day on Wednesday was incredible."

          Mauricio Pochettino: "I'm not frustrated with the result - that's football. It was an even game and we deserved more, at least a draw. I'm so happy with the performance in very difficult circumstances. We competed really well, and we had the clearer opportunities. Just because you deserve it, doesn't mean you always get it."
