Pep Guardiola to keep Manchester City stars in London for three nights

Manchester City (£24 million) and Manchester United (£21 million) completed the top four.

City remain in contention for the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, whilst they already secured the Carabao Cup by beating Chelsea in February. APRIL 2/3 CHELSEA vs Brighton Maurizio Sarri's side returned to winning ways against Cardiff thanks to the help of questionable officiating.

As of now, Liverpool and Manchester City are in the best race to win the title.

"In terms of the places they are going to and what they are fighting for, it is hard".

Confirmation that an eye-watering £260,664,118 went out of the game and directly into the bank accounts of players agents and advisers over the a year ago will reignite the debate on curbing what has become a rising bill, with Premier League clubs discussing collective plans to control outgoing fees.

While Liverpool won their last game against Tottenham Hotspur, a win for City against Cardiff City would certainly put them a point clear.

Premier League top-4 chances: Can Arsenal stay in top-4?

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was unable to hold onto Mohamed Salah's tame header, fumbling the ball onto the unfortunate Toby Alderweireld for an own goal which sealed Liverpool's return to the summit of the Premier League table.

The problem for them has come when they have slipped up in games they shouldn't have. Manchester United win. TOTTENHAM vs West Ham Tottenham's final London derby of the season sees Pochettino's men host the Hammers. Arsenal win. CHELSEA vs Watford Watford's star players will probably be on the beach by the time they rock up to Stamford Bridge.

It's unusual for Guardiola to keep his players away from home for a prolonged spell and underlines the Catalan manager's realisation they are now in the business end of the season.

Further, City would be playing Tottenham thrice this month, courtesy Champions League quarter-finals commitment.
