Meanwhile, City have secured a 16th consecutive Premier League win against Tottenham to go 14 points clear on top.

The Mancunians handed out a 4-1 bashing to the Lilywhites to earn their 16th Premier League triumph on the bounce.

City were vying to increase their record straight Premier League victory when they filed out against Tottenham on Saturday evening.

And that was aftermath of the Citizens picking up a record 15th triumph on the trot in the Premier League.

The Citizens handed out a 4-0 lesson to a struggling Swansea City team at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, City manager, Pep Guardiola seems to have lavished huge praise on Tottenham prior to the match.

The Spaniard also tipped Tottenham to give his side a run for their money when both teams clashed this weekend.

He further suggested that the Lilywhites would be the biggest test for the Mancunians so far this very season.

But the team from North London failed woefully in their bid to end the Premier League leaders’ 15-game winning patch.

Pochettino congratulates City

City are now a whopping 14 points ahead of their nearest challengers at the top of the Premier League standings.

Manchester United can, however, reduce the deficit to 11 points against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon.

City are currently 19 points ahead of the Lilywhites who are occupying the seventh position on the Premier League log.

“I think it was a good experience for the team, when you win and play well, you maybe don’t learn.

‘So, you must learn this type of game but we have a lot of positive things.

“And this is because we played a team in very good form with very good momentum,” he informed BBC Sport.

“It was not bad at the start but the way we conceded from a corner was a big mistake.

“And a massive present for them, when you play a team in spectacular form, you cannot give away these gifts.

“When you’re playing a team with good quality, if we take risks, we give them the possibility of creating chances.

“We tried to play but they were better, therefore, we have to congratulate them.

“So far, they are the best team in England but I can tell you that I have very huge disappointment.

“We must learn because one day, we want to be in a position to win the Premier League.

“But today was a big lesson for us which we have to make use of in future.

“We were never going to come here and play a different way to how we normally play.

“So, we tried, we tried to force the opener but they were better,” Pochettino concluded.
