Tottenham fans want Pochettino to start Aurier against Man City

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hailed Kevin de Bruyne's performance after his side thrashed Tottenham 4-1 on Saturday.

City's winning run is also the longest in any of Europe's top-flight leagues, trailing only Monaco (16), Real Madrid (16), Barcelona (16), Inter Milan (17) and the 2013-14 Bayern Munich team which holds the current record at 19 consecutive victories.

However, since then West Brom have been plunged into a relegation battle and have replaced manager Tony Pulis with Alan Pardew, who may consider taking the cash to reinvest in other areas of his squad and has said he fears losing the player.

"I don't want to be humble right now".

It would be a remarkable feat to go 38 games unbeaten - so many factors all need to come together over an entire season - but at present Manchester City's opponents may feel they can cut off one threat only to be brought down by another.

I'm proud with my staff to achieve that with three teams, every day being there.

"When we won our games, like in Huddersfield, or in Wembley against Stoke, the players put music and it's so loud".

Silva's replacement, the hugely gifted Ilkay Gundogan finally free from injury, took the chance to make his mark by scoring the opening goal with a stooping header.

After Spurs rallied in the second half, De Bruyne carried the game beyond them, rifling home a left-foot shot in the 70th minute and sparking the move that culminated in Sane teeing up Sterling for a tap-in.

Christian Eriksen hit a stoppage-time consolation as Spurs fell to seventh on an evening to forget for the Lilywhites.

He was fortunate to be shown only a yellow card after catching Sterling high on the calf and may have been saved by the fact Pawson had turned away to avoid being hit by the ball at the moment of contact.

But I'm never [going to complain] if another team celebrate because sometimes it's good, when you lose, and you hear all that happens in another changing room.

On his side's winning run, he added: "Since August we are so happy and I admire the most the way we play without the ball - thank you to the club to provide me with these fantastic players". "We always try positive things but the problem was that we conceded a poor goal. The better team won". "They deserved the victory completely".
