Wednesday's seven-goal thriller may have drawn the curtains on the Citizens' bid for a quadruple but they can exact immediate revenge on the visitors

After playing out not only one of the games of the season but one of the European ties of the century in their Champions League quarter-final second leg on Wednesday, Manchester City and Tottenham will lock horns again at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League.

With Pep Guardiola’s Citizens denied of a historic quadruple in a manic seven-goal thriller that saw Spurs progress to the semi-finals on the away goal rule, the hosts have a chance to exact immediate revenge in the race to defend their domestic crown.

With the Carabao Cup already secured and an FA Cup final date on the horizon, City can still complete a treble at home, but the evisceration of their continental dreams once more is a bitter pill to swallow.

With their first last four berth in Europe’s top competition secured for the first time since 1962, Mauricio Pochettino has already cemented his place in club history – but a second win in four days over their opponents would be a dream come true for the visitors.

Match Preview


Sergio Aguero Manchester City Spurs

With their dreams of a famous quadruple in tatters , Manchester City could be forgiven for wanting to take time to regather their bearings and process how they have failed to overcome their European hurdles once again

Instead, they will dust themselves off for an immediate rematch with their continental vanquishers - and Premier League rivals - Tottenham Hotspur, as they return their attention squarely to securing a domestic treble instead.

Pep Guardiola's side welcome back Mauricio Pochettino's visitors to the Etihad Stadium merely four days after their seven-goal thriller produced one of the games of the season , in an absolutely madcap roller-coaster of a match from start to finish.

Raheem Sterling and Heung-min Son's early doubles, coupled with Bernardo Silva's 11th-minute effort, meant that City led 3-2 inside the first quarter of the game, yet it was to be the late drama that trumped all else thanks to two key VAR decisions.

Sergio Aguero looked to have put the hosts out in front at 4-2 when Fernando Llorente bundled the ball in to pull one back and level the aggregate scores, with video technology clearing him of a handball.

Then, Sterling sent the home crowd into the stratosphere with his injury-time strike, only for it to be chalked off a minute later for offside, to send Tottenham through to a first Champions League semi-final on away goals.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game , Guardiola lamented the decisions, stating: "I support VAR but maybe from one angle, Fernando Llorente's goal is [a] handball, [and] maybe from the referee's angle, it is not.

"It was cruel. The moment we celebrate and we are so close to the semi-finals. It is what it is."

Pochettino meanwhile saluted his injury-struck side , who are without the England trio of Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Harry Winks, for their efforts in making history.

"I'm so happy. On this type of night, for this type of victory in the most important competition in the world," the Argentine stated .

"I can only feel proud about the effort of everyone. They are heroes. After what happened this season, all the circumstance, to be in the semi-finals of the Champions League, they deserve a lot of praise.

"They deserve everything, to live everything. One way you can describe this team is it is not about players and names. Always we keep the same spirit, ideas and philosophy."
