With Tottenham storming back to win 3-1 at Swansea in a game that finished slightly earlier, Chelsea's victory maintained its seven-point lead over the north London club.

With City, without a win in four games, a further two points back in fourth, Guardiola's chief concern will be ensuring they keep above Arsenal and Manchester United in the scrap for qualification for next season's Champions League.

It is a big win [over Man City]. "We must think that Tottenham could win all their games".

We will go there and do our best to get a positive result.We need to believe and work hard.

Chelsea meanwhile edged out Manchester City at Stamford Bridge to remain in pole position to win the title with eight games left.

City are fourth in the league table and are now 14 points behind Chelsea who beat Guardiola's men 2-1 in the league on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge to strengthen their strong hold at the top of the table.

The Tigers have scored just two goals in their last 11 Premier League away games, despite attempting 114 shots (41 on target). If he wins a title and begins the cycle, the objective is one of continuity.

They have also been eliminated from the Champions League by Monaco during that period, meaning that the City manager's only realistic hope of ending his first season in England with a trophy lies with the FA Cup.

Marco Silva: "Manchester City are a very, very good team with a fantastic manager and players".

"We have shown in the previous year or two what we are capable of".

"We felt that before the game today".

"I never could imagine in Barcelona, Bayern or when I arrived here knowing absolutely everything".

Wednesday's defeat means that City face a major battle to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Asked how he will respond to the season, he said: "I will be better". The Brazilian defender and his teammates are making sure they focus on the rest of the season.

"I was expecting from the beginning of the season to fight for the Premier League until the end. we are a little bit disappointed, but I am quite happy with the way we made good things in this season". "I read this interview about Pastorello - I don't know him and I don't know why this person has spoken about me".
