Chelsea tighten grip on EPL title with win over Man City
Premier League leaders Chelsea reasserted their authority on the title race courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Wednesday.
Chelsea meanwhile edged out Manchester City at Stamford Bridge to remain in pole position to win the title with eight games left. We won't stop pushing for the title and dreaming about it, but they had a big win over Manchester City and the gap is still seven points.
"For this reason, we must be focused and try to win six games". Tottenham could win all eight games. City will also face Arsenal in an FA Cup semi-final on April 23, which is their only hope for a silverware in manager Pep Guardiola's first season at the club. I was happy because the first target was to qualify but after that with the Everton and Middlesbrough games I realised we had to play really, really, really good to win the games. "We know we still have a good advantage, but this is the Premier League and you don't want to be giving points away, especially at home", the midfielder said.

The Spaniard said: "My feeling is during the season we made really good things". We created chances but had problems scoring.
Now fourth in the Premier League, City are facing a scrap for Champions League qualification and, even though the campaign could still end with FA Cup success, there is a feeling of underachievement.
Liverpool could have stamped our authority on the chase, but foolishly conceded late on against the Cherries, who we'd dominated all game.
"We've got a mini league for us now and it starts with Hull (on Saturday)".
"I think he's crying out to the owners in the interviews that "if you give me five or six players that can help all these exciting players going forward, then I'll deliver".
That being said, the Champions League is there to play for so I am expecting the Sky Blues to continue fighting since a top 4 spot alone is worth fighting for.
Mauricio Pochettino's side showed great spirit to complete a terrific comeback against Swansea City but it's hard to see Chelsea throwing it away.
"When that happened we didn't win by three or four, just one or two".
