Vertonghen says Spurs must keep pushing in title race

Pep Guardiola has admitted that the Premier League title is beyond Manchester City's reach and they must now focus on securing a top four place, as per Sky Sports. "They were out for a long time, especially Vincent".

Guardiola insists, however, that the current season is not a write-off.

Much was expected from the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss when he took charge at City last summer but his side have underperformed in both the Premier League and Champions League.

"Normally, that [Steaua ] game would be 12-0". We missed two penalties and so many chances.

"I don't know if the way we played was handsome but the most important thing is to win games", the Belgian added. "We must think that Tottenham could win all their games".

'We created chances but we had problems scoring them and we suffered. Southampton topped Crystal Palace 3-1 and Bournemouth produced a late goal to hold Liverpool 2-2 at Anfield.

Kompany, who played 90 minutes in a league game for the first time in a year, said City were ready to fight for a top-four finish to qualify for Champions League next season. We have to worry about ourselves, not what the others are doing.

"When you are seven points above the second-placed team with eight games to go, it is normal in the end to win the league", Pochettino told a news conference ahead of his side's clash with Watford on Saturday.

Guardiola has seen a number of unwelcomed firsts this season. Chelsea and Tottenham are in the other semi-final.

Vertonghen says Spurs must keep pushing in title race

The Catalan also needs to win the FA Cup if he is to avoid the first trophyless season of his career.

Having already made his way up to the dressing-room area, Guardiola is claimed to have come back down the stairs to defend Sertori and allegedly flew into a rage when Bertelli made a comment about his touchline behaviour. "Hopefully they keep in charge with me and I would like next season to move the team a step forward".

"You learn about that, you don't regret that I was not able knowing that our problems in the boxes don't solve themselves".

"Maybe that is what I should do in advance - correct that - but it is part of our growth".

"I never thought I arrived here that I knew absolutely everything".

"They have a lot of great players and a fantastic coach".

"That can put on a bit of pressure, but I think our reply was very good today".

"We're still pushing, believing, pressuring Chelsea". I have no complaints about this.
