Bernardo Silva says Man City are relishing pressure of title race

Manchester City's English midfielder Phil Foden celebrating with his teammates after scoring the opener in the 1-0 Premier League win over Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium yesterday. City moved back to the top of the table one point ahead

"We wanted to keep the race for the Premier League title alive".

City returned to the top of the table on Saturday with a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur, three days after suffering Uefa Champions League quarter-final heartbreak to the same side.

City will retain the Premier League title if they win their next four matches, starting with the derby against city rivals Manchester United on Wednesday night. And we needed this type of attitude, to be aggressive at the start, because Tottenham are an incredible side the way they get in behind us with the ball, the way they attack our back [line].

A successful defence of that crown remains on the cards, with the Blues now two points back on table-topping Liverpool while boasting a game in hand. They need points to be in the top four and we need them to fight for the title.

Of the championship race he said: "Liverpool have a strong squad but I'm happy with my team - what they have shown me over two seasons has been correct". Man City fixtures Wednesday Manchester United (A) April 28 Burnley (A) May 6 Leicester City (H) May 12 Brighton (A) May 18 Watford (Wembley) FA Cup final 'So we expect a very hard game against one of the best sides in England.

Yet nothing changed in City's approach - they continued to push forward in search of more goals, which carried the risk of Spurs exploiting space on the break.

But they could not find a way past Ederson and City held on to a valuable three points.

"When we won the league last time we were miles in front but this is better because we've actually had a a challenge, someone fighting with us".

The academy product is targeting more goals after netting on just his second Premier League start, nodding in after Sergio Aguero headed a Silva delivery back across the face of goal.

The 1998 World Cup victor said: "It's a derby, and it's always hard to play a derby, but I think City in the last couple of years has been the best team in Manchester". He also suggested Wilshere was only a regular under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal "because there is no pressure at his club to win titles".

The teenager impressed Guardiola, who said he never had a young player as good as Foden when he was in charge of Barcelona. When I first landed here [in summer 2016] Txiki Begiristain [City's sporting director] told me: 'Meet one player - he is 15, 16 years old.
