Cityzens did not let their defeat in the first leg affect the Premier League title race with a 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace on the weekend.

Winning the Champions League twice as a coach puts Pep Guardiola in a fairly elite company.

The Spaniard won it with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011, while also earning a winners' medal as a Barca player in 1992.

The Citizens are second in the Premier League table, two points behind Liverpool with a game in hand, leaving the destiny of the title in their hands.

And Guardiola, who cut a tetchy figure for much of his press conference, refused to accept he has underachieved in Europe's elite club competition. We fail all the time. "After November I am so happy with him", he said.

It has been a unusual season for Manchester City because we sit here in mid April with the title in our hands and still in both the FA Cup and Champions League, which is an something we have never achieved before as a club.

"What can I say?"

"Do I have to win it? No".

Donny van de Beek has admitted his perference for a semi-final meeting with Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League as Spurs have former Ajax players in their ranks.

"I know people say I came here to win the Champions League, but I didn't come here to win the Champions League", Guardiola said.

"Before I came to Manchester City, I didn't really know what to make of this Raheem Sterling guy", De Bruyne said.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is seen during a training training session ahead of the match against Manchester City, April 16, 2019.

Memories of Manchester City's first two Premier League wins are underpinning the club's battle with Liverpool, according to Vincent Kompany.

"In two seasons we've got 83 points with five games left".

"We are in the semi-finals with Ajax!"

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris made a first-leg penalty save from Sergio Aguero and accepted it will not be easy to hold on their lead.

"It comes from within everyone, we have this belief and ambition to do it". We are going to be 11 against 11 on the pitch and of course we will forget everything and try and win everything, and fight. They'll need to be on top of their game tonight if they are to advance to the semifinals for only the second time.

"The challenge is Guardiola is maybe the best manager in the world", Pochettino said.

Luckily for Trippier, his side managed to see out the tie, despite Sterling scoring in added time. We have other offensive players. So, I guess I thought he'd be. what do the English call it? Usually 84, 85 points is enough to win the title.
