After Sterling's goal seemed to send Spurs crashing out at the quarter-finals stage, Pochettino relived the agonising moments in which he felt that his side's Champions League dream had ended in heart-breaking fashion. He's a guy who has the quality to arrive in the box. Yes Vincent Janssen. At least he was listed, I never saw him on the tele.

VAR ruled out a Raheem Sterling goal in injury time and Pochettino says he went through a roller-coaster of emotions. And today it's paid off.

"We don't have time to enjoy and we need to forget the Champions League now and try to be ready for Saturday because it's going to be a battle". I don't think they can gamble, I don't think they can think that "we are going to win the Champions League and we are going to qualify for the Champions League as Champions League winners". "Now it's about trying to be strong and recovering the energy".

"That would mean that only this match was played after 12 May", Eric Gudde, the football director for the Dutch league, said.

The victory took City back above Liverpool, but the downside was another injury to playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, who limped off with what looked like another knee problem before half-time.

At the other end, Raheem Sterling almost scored with a close-range shot which Spurs keeper Paulo Gazzaniga, in for the injured Hugo Lloris, did well to keep out with his feet.

They struggled to assert themselves, however, against ever unsafe opponents who always looked capable of scoring with Son Heung-min twice free on goal and Christian Eriksen failing to make City pay.

City claimed a 10th successive league win despite having penalty appeals turned down when Jan Vertonghen's hand blocked a strike from Aguero and Juan Foyth brought down Foden.

The 70-year-old described Premier League officials as the "worst in the world" after that game and has pleaded not guilty to three FA charges.
