Man United played loud music to spite Man City after derby win

The Spaniard added that a trip to play fourth-placed Tottenham, who are unbeaten in the league since losing at City in mid-December, will be a stern test for his side.

City of course overhauled United's 8 point lead at the top of the table to lift the 2011/12 title, but surely 13 points in just six games is too much...isn't it?

Tottenham Hotspur will welcome Manchester City to Wembley tomorrow.

One of those losses came to the Red Devils in the top flight last weekend, denying City the chance to win the title in a record time, and Guardiola is not yet prepared to start the celebrations as his side would not be the first to slip up from a seemingly unassailable position.

But despite needing only five points to be certain of his first Premier League title, Guardiola says his side can still be caught.

The rivals have already faced off on two occasions this season, and they were feisty affairs as crowd trouble marred the league game at the AMEX Stadium before Brighton sent Palace out of the FA Cup. "We can only try to focus and win at Tottenham and then Swansea", he told reporters.

United inflicted just the second League defeat of the season on City by winning the Manchester derby last week with that sensational 3-2 win at the Etihad, and in the process stopped City being confirmed as Champions. "They [Cleveland] won three games in a row, so in sports it can always happen".

Media watchdog accuses Israel of 'deliberate shooting' of journalists in Gaza
Five Israelis - three settlers and two soldiers - were killed by Palestinians in the West Bank during the same period. No Israelis were injured on either day and the latest deaths have sparked fresh calls for an investigation.

"What I say to the players - and what they show every game - is that it is not done". But we have handled the pressure all season.

City were two up in the Manchester derby before Paul Pogba inspired a United comeback, scoring twice in the second half of their 3-2 win.

'It would be better but I am who I am, ' said Guardiola.

"It can happen, no doubt about that". One year ago Cavaliers won 4-3 against Golden State Warriors, winning three games in a row.

"But it's in our hands, we don't depend on anyone else, and that's a good advantage". A team that included players such as Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, David Beckham, Iker Casillas and Raul lost six of their last seven games to finish seven points behind Valencia having led by 11 points at one stage. So if we lose, we're going to do it in a similar way to the way we played against United and Liverpool. "Congratulations to the opponents if they beat us".

City will be without two key players though - leading scorer Sergio Aguero has aggravated a knee injury amid fears he could miss the rest of the season while midfielder Fernandinho is suspended for two games after picking up 10 bookings.
