Pep Guardiola's side's controlled, methodical style of football has them heading ever closer to European glory

Manchester City are primed to face a familiar foe in the form of Tottenham in the last eight of the UEFA Champions League.

Pep Guardiola's all-conquering outfit are edging closer and closer to an unprecedented quadruple, and they will no doubt rely on their methodical, swashbuckling brand of football which has served them so well in Europe's premier club competition this season.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, City rank first for Progress per Sequence in the UCL this season (19.4m), while they also lead Europe's best when it comes to Time per Sequence (15.3 seconds).

The Premier League champions don't keep possession for possession's sake. Guardiola's side pass with purpose; their attack is top for average expected goals-per-game this season (2.43).
