Experts around the world have said that and managers of other English clubs have acknowledged the same.
But Pep Guardiola has since seen his side lose an alarming three on the bounce.
"But - and there is very definitely a "but" - to win only two trophies barely reflects the majesty of the football they have played". Teams are picking their moment and running at their defence, taking advantage of their indecision and using spaces to score goals. The majority of the City first team look exhausted and that has made them a lot less effective on the pitch, with De Bruyne being one of the best examples of that.
Pochettino's side will face City without Danny Rose who now has a calf injury. If tonight's great performance is any indication, we're winning the title next week.
However, as the season has progressed so has Salah's clinical nature in front of goal.
Kane touches it, apparently.

There have been 19 goals scored in the five previous Premier League meetings between these sides, at an average of 3.8 per game. And Firmino got in on the act in the final stages as Klopp's side move within a point of United, who have two games in hand.
However, Guardiola believes delivering the first Premier League title of his reign was the priority for his second season in charge.
The champions-elect still boast a 13-point lead at the top of the Premier League with six games remaining. He also has a keen eye for talent and that can be seen with the signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax, with the young Colombian having replaced stalwart Toby Alderweireld in the starting eleven seamlessly. "The Premier League shows how good you are every three days". "He is going to learn a lot from this". Their only loss in 2018 has been the second leg defeat to Juventus, a match that ended 2-1, resulting in their elimination from the Champions League. However, they are still on course to complete a double this season.
As things stand, it looks likely that Tottenham will finish in the top four for the third successive season.
City can not win the title at Wembley but know a win would put them within two points of doing so. The Saints are three points from safety with a game in hand.
Spurs will no doubt press high and try to unsettle the Blues, but it's not easy to contain a side like City on a pitch the size of Wembley's so if the hosts get it wrong, they could pay the price.
A petition demanding the return of standing to the Premier League is halfway towards forcing MPs to consider a parliamentary debate on the matter following a backlash against the sports minister's refusal to approve a pilot.
