73Fine win away at Spurs

They say a manager learns more about his players in times of adversity than when things are going swimmingly.

There weren’t many dips in form last season for Pep Guardiola to test that theory, but the week that saw us exit the Champions League at the hands of Liverpool and lose at home to Manchester United was undoubtedly the nadir. Three defeats in a week…how would the players react?

The answer was emphatic, a 3-1 win away at Tottenham that moved us to within three points (or a defeat for United) of the title, with the quality of the performance outstanding throughout. This was the City we’d seen throughout the season: dominating possession, moving the ball at speed and inventive in attack. Tottenham, a fine side, were completely outplayed.

Gabriel Jesus’ cool finish after a superb long ball forward from Vincent Kompany saw us open the scoring, and Ilkay Gundogan’s penalty saw us make it 2-0 inside 25 minutes.

Against the run of play, Christian Eriksen halved the arrears just before half time, but our two-goal advantage was restored when Raheem Sterling, brilliant throughout, scored with 20 minutes remaining. The scoreline flattered the Londoners.

Given the difficulty of the assignment and the context in which it emerged, this was perhaps City’s finest Premier League performance of the season.

YES: Fabian Delph can't hide his delight

74Brahim shines

He may have made his senior debut in the 2016-17 campaign in the League Cup match away at Swansea, but Brahim Diaz truly emerged last season.

The 18-year-old played 10 times in total. He made his Champions League debut away at Feyenoord and his Premier League bow against Newcastle. In pretty much every appearance, he impressed with his technical quality and ability to beat players.

This is an extremely talented youngster, whose displays during the Club's preseason tour of the US 12 months ago paved the way for his emergence as a first-team fringe player. 

There's more to come but the signs are very, very good.
