Pep Guardiola has stated that City must return to who they were earlier in the season in order to bounce back...

It's been a frustrating week - suffering defeats to Liverpool in the Champions League and United in the Premier League derby, but the boss believes Saturday's clash against Tottenham is the perfect opportunity to secure some much needed points. 

Guardiola and his squad will travel to Wembley on Saturday 14 April to face Spurs, with a late kick-off time of 7.45pm (BST).

"We have to try to be who we were during the season," Pep stated when asked about his side's response to recent results. "We are 13 points clear because we deserve to be there.

"In the last eight or nine games, we have lost one. We won last five in a row before United.

"Results are good. We need to think about the strong points of Tottenham, try to win the game. One of the successes we have had is when we drop points, we have then win, win, win win.

"In the Premier League maybe will be the first time we don’t get good results in a row."
