  1. Goodbye

    Man City

    So it's the Champions League again for Manchester City - but they won't be there as English champions. Instead that honour goes to Chelsea, who are celebrating their first Premier League title since 2010.

    But who will be Chelsea's French equivalents in the Champions League next season? Defending champions Paris St-Germain are firmly in the driving seat to win Ligue 1, join us again from 19:30 BST for live updates from their trip to Nantes.

    In the meantime, take a look at victorious Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's barely-believable trophy record in numbers. Clue: It is very impressive. Au revoir!

  2. Text us on 81111

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Adam, London: I don't think any realistic Spurs fan thought we could achieve Champions league football this season, we were only looking for progress which has definitely been seen today.

  3. Manager reaction

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Manuel Pellegrini

    Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini, speaking to BBC: "I said before we were going to see a beautiful game because both teams play offensive football so I expect the fans enjoyed the game. It was a close game and Sergio scored a great goal. I am happy about that.

    "You must remember against Tottenham that Chelsea conceded five goals, we have a clean sheet. Tottenham create chances with offensive players, but I think we have as many chances as Tottenham. We have to finish the season now and then we will analyse it.

    "I think it's important to finish as near the top as possible and see where we need to improve. Maybe Chelsea are more consistent this year and they won the league but we scored more when we did it."

  4. Stat attack

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Spurs have taken fewer points than any other team in the head to heads between the top six teams this season (8).

  5. Pellegrini dodges question about his future

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    The inevitable 'will you still be here next season' question is dangled in front of Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini down in the White Hart Lane tunnel. He doesn't take the bait.

    "I'm not going to answer that question," huffs the Chilean before walking away.

  6. 'Hart was the difference'

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino: "Joe Hart was brilliant today. He was the man of the match, and the difference between the teams.

    "We had a chance to score from a corner, and there was a good counter attack from City and finish from Aguero. Our mentality is to attack the opposing goals. I think we were a little unlucky.

    "Aguero is a brilliant player. The chance that he had, he scored. But we are disappointed."

  7. We must take chances - Pochettino

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino: "I feel proud of our players. The performance was very good and we deserved much more. But the effort was brilliant.

    "We had three or four chances in the first five minutes, but when you play Manchester City, you need to score when you get those chances."

  8. Player reaction

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Joe Hart

    Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, speaking to BBC Sport: "We always produce a good game against Spurs. We counter attacked well, and when you have David Silva and Sergio Aguero up there you always get chances.

    "Spurs really came at us today and sometimes you have to dig in and we did that. Chelsea's season is over now, congratulations to them, but ours isn't. It's good to have things to play for even though it's not a trophy now, and we'll fight to the end of the season."

    Danny Rose

    Tottenham defender Danny Rose, speaking to Sky Sports: "We deserved a point, and had two or three good chances. Manchester City scored with their first real chance and had that class to put the ball in the net. We're all bitterly disappointed because we deserved something out of the game.

    "I think we've done well against the big teams at home but everyone should be proud of themselves. City have just shown a bit more quality in front of goal. The chances that did come for us, Joe Hart's made some great saves and kept them in the game.

    "We're looking to get nine points out of their remaining three games now. I think we've shown great work-rate and attitude and need to show that in the last three games."

  12. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Mauricio Pochettino reckons his team deserved much more than the defeat which they suffered - and he is probably right. We will bring you more of the Argentine's post-match reaction in a few minutes.

  13. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Any lingering dreams of Champions League qualification for Spurs are as good as over. Mauricio Pochettino's men are seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with Liverpool sandwiched in-between. In short they need a miracle.

    Neil Adams: This Premier League season for Spurs is petering out like a bad date, you just want it to be over as soon as possible.

    Chris Randell: Very good win, Blues. Silva, Aguero and Hart were excellent.

  15. Player reaction

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Manchester City keeper Joe Hart: "We have showed what we're about today. We have not played well - and we have done what teams have done to us.

    "Sergio can always get us a goal, we managed to get the ball up to him and then we've defended for our lives.

    "Congrats to Chelsea on winning the title - it is well deserved. To lead from the front and stay there - we've done that before and it's difficult - is impressive. But they know we will be back stronger next season."

  16. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    David Pleat at White Hart Lane

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "Big celebrations by the City staff. Tottenham started well, pressed well, full of energy but spurned clear chances. Aguero's fierce predatory instincts scored a super goal and City held out with string defensive work for a good away win."

  17. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Jubilant scenes in the away end - they have forgotten what it is like to celebrate a win on the road. City have avoided a fifth straight away defeat to move nine points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool, with just three matches left. City have a huge goal advantage over the Reds too.

    Even Manuel Pellegrini manages a smile - and a selfie with some fans behind the dugout.

  18. FULL-TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Game over! Sergio Aguero leaps off the Manchester City bench, punching the air in delight. His goal means Manchester City are all but assured of playing in the Champions League again next season.

  19. INJURY TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Paulinho

    Another Spurs attack breaks down, allowing City to go for the jugular - if they want to. But they don't, instead deciding to cautiously keep possession close to the halfway line. Almost home and hosed...

  20. INJURY TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Spurs hog possession as they pile forward - but City's defence is standing firm. Two minutes to go....

  21. INJURY TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino thought Erik Lamela's header was going in. The Argentine was almost dancing down the touchline in celebration...

  22. INJURY TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Joe Hart

    Joe Hart keeps Manchester City ahead - again! The England keeper shows the reflexes of a cat to push Erik Lamela's firm header over the crossbar.

  23. INJURY TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Aguero will be the matchwinner if City can see out FIVE minutes of injury-time....

  24. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    David Pleat at White Hart Lane

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "Aguero is superb. Kane is a promising young striker but this man is the real thing, He is so sharp, has brilliant control and so quick."

  25. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Here is that substitution after a brief delay as Aleksandar Kolarov received some treatment from the City physio. The Serb left-back is fine to carry on, meaning Sergio Aguero is the man withdrawn. Huge ovation from the away end for the man who is set to be the matchwinner...

  26. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Manchester City are readying Belgian defender Dedryck Boyata - another forgotten man - as Manuel Pellegrini looks to shut up shop.

    Paul Moore: Wish Spurs would start more games with Kane, Ade, Soldado up front ... they'd be in the Champions League positions.

    Aman Sheth: Milner the English Ronaldo!

  28. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    David Pleat at White Hart Lane

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "Adebayor should play in the middle and his teammate need to put one or two balls into the mixer and hope he can get his head on one. This is a very tense game, very few people are leaving."

  29. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    I can't think of many examples of an incoming player being met with derision from sets of supporters - we have one here. Spurs' ex-Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor is called from the bench to replace Nacer Chadli.

    Adebayor has seen just 40 minutes of Premier League action in six months....

  30. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Another chance for Paulinho, another top-drawer save from Joe Hart. The City stopper has been exceptional today, beating away another effort from the Brazil midfielder to stop Spurs clawing themselves level.

  31. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    The Spurs fans leap to their feet in excitement as Paulinho meets Erik Lamela's free-kick with a thumping header. The ball drops just wide - and he was offside anyway.

  32. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    I'm reliably informed that Samir Nasri ran just 260m before he was substituted. That's about as far as it is from my desk to the tea machine.

  34. PENALTY APPEAL

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Another Manchester City penalty shout. This time it is full-back Pablo Zabaleta who feels aggrieved after his burst into the right side of the Spurs box is ended by Danny Rose's sliding challenge. Firm but fair in my eyes. Rose nicked the ball before taking out the man in his follow through.

  35. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Harry Kane

    It has not been Harry Kane's day. The Spurs striker has another sniff of the City goal, but his stinging half-volley only finds the body of Aleksandar Kolarov.

  36. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Nope, Samir Nasri cannot continue. The Manchester City midfielder lasts just three minutes before having to trudge off with what appears to be a groin injury. Short and not very sweet. On comes Wilfried Bony.

  37. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Samir Nasri

    Oh dear, Samir Nasri looks to already be in trouble. The Frenchman goes down clutching his left upper leg after being dispossessed inside the Spurs area. Those Spurs boos suddenly turn to cheers...

  38. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Samir Nasri

    Next to appear next to the fourth official's electronic board is Manchester City's Samir Nasri. Ex-Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri that is. He is not given a generous round of applause, instead being 'welcomed' on to the pitch by a chorus of boos.

  39. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    The touchline is a hive of activity. Spurs make the first change as Paulinho replaces Ryan Mason, who is given a generous round of applause.

  40. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Manchester City are the side who look most in control at the moment as Tottenham struggle to create any clearcut chances. Oh hang on - here's one (well, a half chance). Eric Dier arcs a delicious right-wing cross around a statuesque City defence, but the sliding Roberto Soldado cannot stick an outstretched boot on to the ball.

  41. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    City right-back Pablo Zabaleta finds himself in the thick of the action. Firstly he sees his shot blocked by a white shirt, then goes into referee Andre Marriner's notepad after scything down Nacer Chadli.

  42. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Ladies and gentlemen, England boss Roy Hodgson is in the house. Two matches in one day for Hodgson, who I suspect jumped in a cab to dash across London. Don't go on the Tube Roy, you never know who you might end up talking to...

  43. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Sergio Aguero

    Here's a rarity - Sergio Aguero misses a gaping goal. But it was far from a blooping miss by the Premier League's top scorer. The Manchester City striker manages to round Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris after a neat one-two with Fernandinho, but slices wide from a tight angle while struggling to keep balance.

  44. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    David Pleat at White Hart Lane

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "City are beginning to look more comfortable in possession, they are keeping the ball and making Tottenham do all the work and the running."

  45. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Harry Kane and Joe Hart

    A sight of goal for Harry Kane, who pounces on a mistake from City defender Martin Demichelis. Kane keeps his composure as he looks to slot past Joe Hart, but the City keeper stands up well to block not once, but twice. Excellent goalkeeping.

  47. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Time for a Spurs change - and it is an attacking one. On comes Spanish striker Roberto Soldado with Christian Eriksen the man to be withdrawn.

  48. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    James Milner and Danny Rose

    City midfielder James Milner has enjoyed a real tussle with Spurs left-back Danny Rose - and the two Yorkshireman, who both started their careers at Leeds United, battle again near the corner flag.

    Rose comes away with the ball as Milner catches the flag with his hand. In fact, he has broken it! James 'Karate Kid' Milner....

  49. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    City left-back Aleksandar Kolarov needs no invitation to deliver from a wide area - and that's exactly what he does again. However, it is a little strong for the men waiting in the box and Spurs clear.

  50. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Christian Eriksen

    The Spurs defence deal with the City corner slung into the box, before charging forward on an attack of their own. But Christian Eriksen tries to be a little too cute about 20 yards out and is caught in possession by a City opponent. Deliver! Cue groans from the home stands.

  51. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Space for City down the left as full-back Aleksandar Kolarov stretches his legs. He has a few light blue shirts to aim for in the box, but his cross is blocked bravely by Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason. Corner to City....

  52. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Now it is City's turn to dominate possession as the away side are backed by their vocal travelling support. But they cannot find a path through the Spurs defence as Frank Lampard returns the ball to a white shirt on the edge of the home box.

  53. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Danny Rose

    Quite a low key start in comparison to the first. Think we had about four chances by this time an hour ago...

  54. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Spurs settle nicely into their rhythm, lacking the ferocious tempo that they began the first half though. Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala clatters into Christian Eriksen as the pair battle for a high ball. Ouch. Eriksen appears to be fine, despite being hit by a man with the physique of a WWE wrestler.

  55. KICK-OFF

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Tottenham's turn to kick off proceedings. They need at least two goals if they are going to keep their fading hopes of Champions League qualification alive. No changes for either side. As you were.

  56. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Sticking with the Argentine theme, but going back to the present day, the camera pans on to Sergio Aguero as the players re-emerge from their well-earned break.

  57. Post update

    Former Spurs midfielder Ossie Ardiles: "Not in The Lane today. Left my substitute, Ricky Villa to deputise for me. Supporters of Manchester City tell me all the time that they cannot forgive me for 1981. I told them, pointing to Ricky. It's not me. Him!"

  58. HALF-TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Ricky Villa

    You can't go through a Tottenham v Manchester City match and not mention Ricky Villa. The Argentine scored one of THE great Wembley goals slaloming through the City defence to win the 1981 FA Cup for Spurs. And the bearded genius is down on the touchline now, being interviewed during the break.

    Tottenham fans may be scratching their heads as they queue for their half-time balti pie, wondering how their team are behind. The answer? Sergio Aguero's finishing. The little Argentine is battling Spurs top scorer Harry Kane for the Premier League golden boot and he goes two clear of the England international, with his 22nd top-flight strike this season. And that has proved the difference.

    David Pleat at White Hart Lane

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "It has been a good half for Tottenham they have played very well, had four chances and are slightly unfortunate to be behind from a splendid Aguero goal. It has been a bright and breezy half, Pochettino will be more than pleased with the performance but not pleased with the scoreline."

  64. HALF-TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    No more action of note before ref Andre Marriner calls time on an enthralling first half. Time for everyone playing, officiating and watching to catch breath. City lead through Sergio Aguero's clinical strike.

  65. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason is the first name to be noted by ref Andre Marriner, going into the book for a late lunge on opposite number Fernandinho.

  66. INJURY TIME

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    The fourth official steps forward to the touchline, hoisting his electronic board aloft to reveal one minute of stoppage time.

    Ryan Mason

    Another golden chance for Spurs! Harry Kane turns provider, floating in a sumptuous ball to Ryan Mason, who escapes the City offside trap. But Joe Hart stands tall, arms spread like Peter Schmeichel, to block. How have they not scored?!

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Those fans sat in the two stands running along the touchlines will be getting neckache. They are like tennis fans watching the ball fly from side to side. Next to smell a chance is Spurs striker Harry Kane, who escapes the clutches of Kolarov but cannot beat Joe Hart.

  70. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Back to the other end.... and Sergio Aguero wriggles into space. The City striker's thumping effort stings the palms of home keeper Hugo Lloris who gathers at the second attempt.

  71. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Tottenham aren't patient for long though. Full-back Eric Dier scampers up the right touchline, but his cross whacks City defender and goes safely back into the hands of Joe Hart.

  72. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    Harry Kane

    There has been little opportunity for either side to catch breath - until now. Spurs have possession around the halfway line, deciding to be a little more patient in their approach.

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    This game really is easy on the eye. It is like a basketball game at the moment - you attack, we attack. Next up on the offensive are Manchester City, with Fernadinho's low drive needing a back-pedalling Danny Rose to hack away from his goal-line. That was trundling in to the bottom corner.

  76. Post update

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City

    I make that about eight seconds and five City touches from Spurs having a corner to picking the ball out of their net. But Spurs come roaring back, Fazio's header going wide from another corner.

    David Pleat at White Hart Lane

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "That was a very quick attack, who but Silva play that pass and Aguero drove the ball hard and firm past Lloris' left hand and it all came from quick distribution from the goalkeeper Joe Hart. It was against the run of play after almost half an hour's play."

  78. GOAL

    Tottenham 0-1 Man City - Sergio Aguero

    Sergio Aguero celebrates his goal with David Silva

    That's how you turn attack into defence! Joe Hart gathers following a Spurs corner and launches the ball forward quickly to David Silva. The Spaniard spots the run of Sergio Aguero who then fires in an unstoppable angled drive into the top corner. Spurs don't know what has just hit them.

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    I've watched a few replays of that Aguero penalty incident - and I'm still unsure. One angle seems to show that Aguero was clipped by Fazio, but it appears the City striker tripped himself from another. No yellow card for diving either though.

  83. PENALTY APPEAL

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    Sergio Aguero

    Well, well, well - should Manchester City be preparing to take a penalty? Sergio Aguero thinks so. Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris has a rush of blood to the head, charging out of his area to meet Pablo Zabaleta's punt - but the Frenchman gets it wrong. Badly.

    Aguero, with the goal gaping, races through on to the loose ball and goes down after seemingly being clipped by Spurs last man Fazio. Referee Andre Marriner is not impressed and waves play on.

  84. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    City enjoy another spell of pressure as James Milner and Frank Lampard combine in an attempt to pick a hole in the Spurs defence. But the home side win back possession through Nacer Chadli's superb sliding challenge.

    Harry kane

    Another half-chance for Harry Kane as he flings himself at Eric Dier's high swirling cross inside the City box. Kane can't keep the ball down though - but as he climbs to his feet he sees the linesman's flag whistling in the White Hart Lane wind anyway.

  87. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    It won't surprise you to learn that Harry Kane is brimming with confidence. The England striker pounces on a quick throw-in to try his luck from distance, but it veers well away from Joe Hart's goal. Ambitious.

    After that sluggish start, Manchester City are warming to their task now. James Milner's low cross from the right byeline is saved by Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris, before Frank Lampard's half volley sails over the bar. The Spurs fans enjoyed that one from the ex-West Ham man.

    Finally Manchester City show some life. The visitors win a couple of corners in quick succession with Spurs failing to fully clear the second as Aleksandar Kolarov whips in a left-wing cross to Sergio Aguero. He thumps a vicious volley towards the Spurs goal, which flashes past Hugo Lloris's eyes and out for a goal kick.

    Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur challenges Pablo Zabaleta

    Not Pablo Zabaleta's finest few moments in a Manchester City shirt. Harry Kane hustles the Argentine close to the left touchline, setting up a sniff of another Spurs attack. However, City regroup to snuff out the danger.

  93. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    Tottenham finally allow the visitors to have a moment on the ball, only at the back though, as Martin Demichelis looks to bring the ball out of defence. The Argentine finds compatriot Pablo Zabaleta, but his wayward touch gifts a throw-in to Spurs. That pretty much sums up City's start.

  94. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    City keeper Joe Hart went loco on his defence after that Harry Kane chance - and rightly so. Still Tottenham hog the ball, pushing it around at that high-tempo demanded by boss Mauricio Pochettino.

  96. CLOSE!

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    Harry Kane

    Tottenham could have scored three goals already! Their latest chance comes courtesy of another City defensive error, Harry Kane needing no second invitation to pounce on Eliaquim Mangala's dilly-dallying, only to lash a fierce drive past the left-hand post.

  97. CLOSE!

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    What a chance! Sloppy City marking allows Eric Dier to have a free header - a defence's cardinal sin - but the Spurs defender can only plant his effort wide of the far post from 10 yards. You've got to be hitting the target there!

  98. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Man City

    Tottenham are straight on to the front foot as City make a sloppy start. Nacer Chadli is allowed space down the left flank, forcing City left-back Aleksandr Kolarov to race across from his flank to cut out the cross. Corner...

  99. LINE-UPS

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    Harry Kane is the player who the cameraman pans onto as the two teams line up in the White Hart Lane tunnel. The Spurs striker shares a warm embrace with City keeper Joe Hart, who then gees up his team-mates in typical fashion with some words of encouragement.

    "Come on lads, loads of energy, make those set pieces count, rattle them in Kola (Aleksandr Kolarov)," barks the England man. "Let's go!"

  104. Kane v Aguero

  105. Post update

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    6-0, 5-1, 4-1. The last three scorelines between these two sides are only a couple of goals away from resembling a scoreboard at Wimbledon when Novak Djokovic is playing.

    And it has been City who have been as dominant as the Serb tennis star. Spurs have lost seven of the last eight Premier League meetings with the Blues.

    That included the memorable 4-1 win for City earlier in the season - a match which included four (yes, four) penalties. More of the same drama today please.

  106. French flashpoint?

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    France

    Another sub-plot is a potential flashpoint between two feisty Frenchman. City's Samir Nasri says he is ready to refuse the handshake of Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris, who Nasri believes plotted to have him thrown out of France's national squad.

    "There's no smoke without fire," the City midfielder, who has not played for Les Bleus for 18 months, told the Sun.

    However, Nasri is only named on the City bench so don't expect any Wayne Bridge-John Terry type snub....

  107. Bad Kompany

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    Injured Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany watches on from the White Hart Lane as the two sets of players continue to stretch those muscles. The big Belgian looks pensive before smiling as he signs an autograph for a member of the Spurs' stadium staff.

  108. 'Spurs need Kane alternative'

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    Steve Wilson

    BBC MOTD commentator at White Hart Lane

    "Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been talking about the need for a 'big summer' at White Hart Lane. His squad is still dominated by players signed in the aftermath of Gareth Bale's move to Madrid - and there's a feeling that they've been treading water whilst wearing a Harry Kane-shaped lifebelt.

    "Spurs have to plan for the possibility that Kane's second season will be less productive than his first, and continuing to squeeze the odd game and goal out of Adebayor and Soldado is not really a viable option.

    "Finding a second reliable striker - and keeping the excellent Hugo Lloris - must be top of their summer wish list."

  109. Pre-match manager chat - Pochettino

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino on finishing in the top four: "We know it will be hard but we must keep trying. We have a good opportunity today and I think we have a good team."

  111. Trouble on the road

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    An acute case of travel sickness appears to have hit the Manchester City camp in recent weeks. Journeys to the other side of Manchester, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Liverpool have been bumpy and ended with an empty tank of zero points.

  112. Citizens ousted

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    Manchester City's players look relaxed as they go through their warm-up drills in the north London sun. I wonder if anyone has told them that they are no longer the Premier League champions? There aren't many smiles etched across the faces of Sergio Aguero, David Silva and co....

  113. CHELSEA ARE CHAMPIONS

    Chelsea 1-0 Crystal Palace

    We have just heard from Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini in the White Hart Lane tunnel - and the classy Chilean is very gracious about Chelsea's title triumph.

    "They were the most consistent team of the year - they deserve the win," he says.

  114. CHELSEA ARE CHAMPIONS

    Look away now Manchester City fans - your team has been officially dethroned.

    OK, it is hardly a surprise, but Chelsea have clinched the title by beating Palace at Stamford Bridge.

  115. 'Pellegrini's time almost up'

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    Steve Wilson

    BBC MOTD commentator at White Hart Lane

    "Recent history tells us that for a Manchester City manager to keep his job he must win the Premier League. We have no way of knowing if a City boss could survive failing in the Premier League by winning the Champions League, because it has never looked like happening.

    "But given that Manuel Pellegrini has fallen well short on both counts, it's fair to say that his time is almost up. "

  116. Post update

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    David Pleat at White Hart Lane

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "It looks as though the Champions League places is going to be a good race to the wire and the Premier League needs that in view of the fact Chelsea have run away with it and deservedly so. Now got a race for second position and Arsenal will hope their neighbours Tottenham will get a result today."

  117. Get involved

    When I walked into the office earlier, two questions were put to my colleagues.

    Firstly, are Tottenham still 'Champions League chasing'? Umms, errs and some unsure head shaking was the general response. And secondly, is Manuel Pellegrini going to be given his P45 by Manchester City? Again, a few unconvincing mumblings.

    So we're going to let you provide some clearer answers. You know the drill. Tell us what you think by using #bbcfootball on Twitter or by texting 81111.

  118. Europe on the cards for Spurs?

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    Pochettino

    While Manuel Pellegrini sweats over his future, there are no such worries for Spurs counterpart Mauricio Pochettino.

    The Argentine's debut season at White Hart Lane has been mixed. Some wonderful results - particularly the 5-3 home win over Chelsea - have been tempered by their inability to beat the likes of West Brom, Newcastle, Stoke and Leicester on their own patch.

    Nevertheless, a return to the Europa League looks on the cards for sixth-placed Spurs, who could move level with Liverpool with a win today. And three points would also move them four within Manchester United, who occupy that final Champions League qualification with three matches left.

  119. Time to go?

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    Manuel Pellegrini

    If you believe what you read in the newspapers, then Manuel Pellegrini will not be wearing a Manchester City blazer and tie on the touchline next season.

    No Premier League trophy. No Champions League trophy. In fact, no trophy whatsoever. And that is not thought to be good enough to stop City's hierarchy preparing their interview questions for prospective new managers over the summer.

    The bare minimum for Pellegrini is a top-four finish - and the good news is that the Blues will all but manage that with three points at Tottenham today.

    Victory will move City nine points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool, with just nine points left available for the Reds. And Pellegrini's men have the cushion of a +23 goal difference over the Merseyside men.

  120. Team news

    Tottenham v Man City (16:00 BST)

    One change for Spurs as left-back Danny Rose shakes off a knock to replace Ben Davies, who has dislocated his shoulder.

    Spurs XI: Lloris, Dier, Fazio, Vertonghen, Rose, Mason, Bentaleb, Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli, Kane.

    Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure are both ruled out for Manchester City through injury, while Jesus Navas also misses out.

    City XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Mangala, Kolarov, Fernando, Fernandinho, Milner, Lampard, Silva, Aguero.

  121. Pellegrini and City have Clash?

    The Clash

    Now I'm not sure if Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is a fan of seminal punk rockers The Clash or not. But the lyrics of their classic 1981 single 'Should I Stay or Should I Go' could well be floating around the Chilean's mind.

    Or, to be more accurate, the phrase 'should Pellegrini stay or should he go' is probably at the forefront of the minds of City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and chief executive Ferran Soriano...

  122. Should he stay or should he go?

    "This indecision's buggin' me, If you don't want me set me free."

    Manuel Pellegrini - Manchester City manager

    "If you say that you are mine, I'll be here 'til the end of time."
