Pep Guardiola says winning the Premier League will be one of the greatest achievements of his glittering career after Manchester City moved to the brink of the title with a stylish 3-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday.

"I am not concerned", said Pochettino, whose side play Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday. That is good. But it's not easy to be consistent through the whole season. Manchester City started the season really well - we started with a lot of problems.

"That is so important to improve".

"And my only focus is to try to assess and to provide the players with better tools to perform".

Guardiola has won titles with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, while also conquering the Champions League during his Camp Nou reign, but the Spaniard believes leading City to the title would rank among his finest moments. "We played Liverpool, United, Arsenal, Chelsea and 14 games unbeaten I think the players deserve full credit".

"Yes of course if they invest money and bring in players that can improve their squad, of course they are sure to compete to be the best team in the Premier League again". In football, after the whole season when you are the most consistent team, you have the capacity to win. For me today he is one of the best keepers in the world and for me there's no doubt, but you know the perception, sometimes you need to respect the people's perception.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has reiterated that he continues to have faith in goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

"For me Hugo Lloris is doing fantastic, for me he is one of the best keepers in the world and for me there is no doubt about him", the Spurs manager said.

Danny Rose is still missing with a calf injury while Harry Winks remains in Qatar as he recovers from an ankle injury.
