Manchester City train ahead of Tottenham Champions League clash

City still have a game in hand over their title rivals but Sterling still expects the battle for the Premier League to go "down to the wire", with neither side relenting recently.

Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield to move to 85 points with four games remaining and City are on 83 but with an extra game in hand.

Sterling has 21 goals for City this season in all competitions and Guardiola praised his capability to shrug off incidents that don't go his way.

City, however, sealed the deal with their third of the match as De Bruyne latched on to a poor pass from defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka before feeding substitute Gabriel Jesus who finished emphatically.

"You have these days when you see from the first second that it's clicking. The finishing from Sterling was incredible".

You can't win a title over a 38-game season by trying to go at 100 miles an hour and Liverpool have adapted their style to acknowledge that. I want you to be part of this team'.

"You don't beat yourself up".

Sterling should have fired them ahead early on only to sidefoot wide from six yards out after David Silva had cut the ball back from the byline.

The relationship eventually began to turn a little sour, as it often does with Mourinho, and although we have already joined the dots of the unhappy marriage, De Bruyne sheds more light on the circumstances that led to his eventual exit from the London club.

Kevin De Bruyne has admitted he thought Raheem Sterling would be a "d*ckhead" before linking up with him at Manchester City.

But Palace showed a flicker of attacking life soon afterwards, Milivojevic crossing and Christian Benteke heading down before City hacked clear.

After the break, Guaita saved at the feet of Sane and Gundogan fired over before Sterling popped up with the second.

De Bruyne, after his brief spell at Chelsea, was well aware of his fellow new arrival's reputation but was surprised to discover the man did not live up to his billing.

Another cool Sterling finish looked to have ended the game as a contest 27 minutes from time. "We knew it from weeks ago, how it would be between these important games and Tottenham in the Champions League".

But the England forward made no mistake when presented with his next opportunity, in the 15th minute, after Kevin De Bruyne's through-ball dissected the Palace defence.

Heung-min Son's late goal in the first leg capped off a fine performance for Spurs but had Sergio Aguero not had a first half penalty saved for Pep Guardiola's men, it could have been a different story. "No matter what, I am not coming back home a failure'".
