Hodgson sends Manchester City warning ahead of Sunday’s crunch-match

However, ahead of the second leg of our European quarter-final against City - where we lead 1-0 from last week's first meeting - both players have returned to training and their availability will be assessed by Mauricio Pochettino.

Pep Guardiola's quadruple-chasing outfit are still favourites to go through, but Ronaldinho - victor of the competition in 2006 - insists that Mauricio Pochettino's side could be the dark horses of the competition.

Liverpool will be unable to prevent Manchester City from retaining the Premier League crown if the defending champions win all five of their remaining games.

"If we don't win these games we will be out of two competitions", he told a news conference.

McArthur made way for Bakary Sako for Palace, John Stones replacing Sane for City, who removed any lingering doubts about the result when Jesus kept his cool after De Bruyne had played him into the area. Whenever you see a top club like Chelsea fetishizing tippy-tappy keep-ball or a youth coach ordering his players to take only one touch and make a minimum of eight passes before shooting, you are seeing someone locked into the expression of Guardiola's philosophy without understanding it conceptually. In that time, City has amassed 183 points in the Premier League, winning the title in record style last season while being on course to retain the trophy this season.

Manchester City eased back to the top of the Premier League as Raheem Sterling struck twice to beat Crystal Palace 3-1 at Selhurst Park on Sunday. They support their local teams.

"For us to beat them in the first leg was an incredible result but we know very well the tie is still open and tomorrow is going to be very, very tough".

"The players have shown me they want to do it - I didn't have any doubts about that - and we have taken three points from a very hard place to win", said Guardiola. I came here to play the way we played the last 20 months.

As a member of the team that ended Barcelona's long quest for glory in the tournament, Guardiola holds it in contrasting reverence and, with the City website still showing tickets to be available for the Spurs showdown, he implored fans to get behind his team's bid for glory. "I want to see it tomorrow".

The manager was also delighted with Mohamed Salah, whose goal he described as being one of the best goals he had seen live, declaring it "blew me away". "It comes from within everyone - we have this belief and ambition to do it".

Harry Winks is also struggling with a groin injury, but Pochettino has said he is "optimistic" that he will be fit.

This is not a flattering interpretation of Pep Guardiola's success, and yet I write this as a fan of Guardiola.

City went a point clear with the win, only to fall back to second once again following Liverpool's victory over Chelsea.
