  1. Bye for now

    So that's it folks, thanks for joining me for all the reaction to arguably one of the greatest Champions League games ever and for getting involved and having your say.

    Let's hope there's more drama later in the Europa League as we bring you live text commentary on the quarter-final second legs between Napoli and Arsenal, and Chelsea and Slavia Prague.

    Until then I'll leave you with our top football stories right now:

  2. Was City-Spurs one of greatest games ever?

    #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)

    David Howell: West Ham-Liverpool in the last FA Cup final at Cardiff is surely in the conversation.

    Zred: Who could forget that epic England VS Cameroon quarter final game at 1990 WC? Had everything including an extra minute pen. I bet Linker will remember!

    Ollie Thorpe: Barcelona scoring three late goals to win 6-1 against PSG in the 2016-17 Champion’s League, having lost the first leg 4-0, is probably the most incredible game I’ve seen.

    Clive: I still think it comes just behind the Italy 4, W Germany 3 1970 WC SF. Went to extra time in stifling heat, Beckenbauer ended up playing with his arm in a sling - that’s drama!

  3. 'We can't have complacency' - Benitez

    Newcastle v Southampton (Sat, 17:30 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Cardiff's win at Brighton on Tuesday kept alive their survival hopes. The Bluebirds are now within seven points off Newcastle and five behind Southampton in the relegation battle.

    Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez said: “It depends on us, first of all, but also Southampton, Brighton and Cardiff. I’m sure if we win this game, then that will be enough.

    "We have to be sure we don’t approach the game with complacency. We have to be really focused – like they will be."

    “I think it [Saturday's game] could be similar to the Palace game, but hopefully the result will be different," Benitez added.

    "Both teams are similar – they are very good on the counter-attack, aggressive, and they have pace up front. We know we can’t make the same mistakes."

  4. VAR - good or bad?

    Zred: We have never seen anything like yesterday! VAR made the game better.

    Prince Gyimah: Let's not forget the purpose of VAR, that is, avoiding dubious decisions going against teams in which the referees may judge wrongly. VAR stoppages do not take away the joy in celebration. Now, there's added suspense as in tennis and rugby. Why won't you like it?

    James Williams: Love how the only people moaning about VAR are city fans. VAR is good it's coming and don't complain I'm sure if the situation was the other way around you would all be saying how great VAR is.

  5. 'VAR has to be there' - Dyche

    Chelsea v Burnley (Mon, 20:00 BST)


    Did VAR add something to the Man City-Tottenham game? Either way, Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes it is here to stay.

    “VAR has to be there for me," he said. "I’m still a bit unsure why you need a referee to go and view a monitor.

    "The cold view of someone watching, away from the game, is the way to go in my opinion. But it’s a necessary thing. There is so much at stake in games.”

No reliance on expensive overseas signings then. from Chris
  7. 'The players want to hunt for more points' - Hasenhuttl

    Newcastle v Southampton (Sat, 17:30 BST)


    Cardiff's win at Brighton on Tuesday means Southampton and Newcastle are still not sure of Premier League survival. Newcastle are two points above the Saints in 15th.

    Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl said: "Newcastle are a very good team. They are nearly safe but they will want to make the last step. For us, it’s another good challenge to show that we can compete in away games, like we did at Brighton.

    "For sure we need more than 36 points. We're five points clear of Cardiff, three clear of Brighton. The result on Tuesday shows that nobody gives up. There is no knockout for Cardiff, they are still alive. I expect them to fight very hard until the end and so we have to do the same and I guarantee we will do.

    "We speak about the 40 points and therefore we need four more and the good thing is I don’t have the feeling my team is leaning back. They stay focused and although it’s a long season so far I have the feeling they are very hungry and they want to hunt and take more points and that’s a good signal for me.

    "I don’t have to do a lot because I think if you feel how nice it is to win games then you get motivated to do it more often and that’s exactly what I can feel at the moment.

    "Games like against Wolverhampton at home helps a lot to be positive for the future and I think in the last seven games we only lost twice, and that was against Liverpool and Man Utd away."

  8. Lemina back in training

    Newcastle v Southampton (Sat, 17:30 BST)


    Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said earlier that defender Jannik Vestergaard is doubtful for Saturday's game while midfielder Mario Lemina is back in training.

    Michael Obafemi (hamstring) remains out but Yan Valery is definitely fit while Alex McCarthy, Matt Targett and Charlie Austin may still be available despite "little problems".

    “Mario Lemina made a big step forward in the week,” Hasenhuttl said. “He’s trained with the team and looks much better now – that’s good for him and good for us.

    “We know we have an intense week with three games, so it will be nice if we have one more option in this position. I have spoken about it and I am sure he will play [at least] one more game this season."

    Vestergaard missed training on Tuesday and Wednesday and Hasenhuttl added: “Like in the last weeks, after intense games he has little problems and needs a little bit longer for recovery.

    “It’s a long season with a huge body, so at the moment he is struggling a little bit, but let’s have a look and see if it’s possible at the weekend."

  9. Was City-Spurs one of greatest games ever?

    SMS Message: Most dramatic game, Arsenal winning league at Anfield in 89. Or does that not count as football only began with the Premier League? from Andy
    SMS Message: Euro '04, Czech Republic coming back from 2-0 down to win 3-2. Countless near goals, rattled woodworks, an 88 minute winner and a sending off. As a 13 year old I'd never been so excited! from Callum, Devon

    SMS Message: The greatest game for me was Celtic 4 Juventus 3 in 2001. When you think the first game ended 3-2 (to Juve) with a last min penalty and that Juve had a goal disallowed in the last min of the return fixture it was nerve shredding. The sad thing was that news had filtered thro on the final whistle that Porto had scored a late winner against Rosenborg to knock Celtic out despite one of the most crazy games ever and one of the truly great nights at Celtic Park. Bonkers. from Mark O

  10. 'We're still in a dream' - Pochettino

    Man City 4-3 Tottenham (Agg: 4-4 - Tottenham win on away goals)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    After his side progressed from the Champions League quarter-finals in dramatic fashion, manager Mauricio Pochettino was asked if Tottenham's name is on the cup.

    "At the beginning of the season no-one believed us," he said. "I believe in the universe but you need to work to make that.

    "It's destiny, working very hard and a little bit of luck. It's a mix.

    "We are still in a dream," Pochettino added. "We are in a bubble.

    "No-one believed in November but we believed. No-one expected us to beat City."

    JRCPRM: I don't think anything with ever top Brazil 1-7 Germany in 2014 semi final of the world cup on Brazilian soil. I'll take those memories to my grave. Both outstanding games in their own right though.

  12. 'We're not optimistic about Kane return' - Pochettino

    Man City v Tottenham (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Harry Kane has commenced his rehabilitation and I asked Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino if his top scorer will play again this season.

    He said: “We are not optimistic but you know Harry Kane and with Harry Kane all is possible. We are not going to say he is not going to play again or not. We will assess him day by day.”

  13. 'It's a solid season compared to last one' - Pellegrini

    West Ham v Leicester (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    West Ham United

    With four games left, West Ham are 11th in the Premier League and manager Manuel Pellegrini was asked about the Hammers' season so far.

    "It's not an easy answer because there are two sides to it," he said. "Yes, I'm happy because it is a solid season compared to the last one.

    "After that, having so many important players injured for so long is not easy. But always, I feel we can do it better. There are a lot of results that we could have improved. Maybe for this season, it's OK."

  14. 'If we play like that we'll win more' - Pellegrini

    West Ham v Leicester (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    West Ham United

    West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini on last Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Manchester United: "We lost the last three games, but in different ways. We lost to Everton, but then we lost to Manchester United when we played well. Maybe with VAR we would have won the game.

    "If we play the way we played at Man Utd we will win more than the way we played against Huddersfield, when we did win."

    On Brendan Rodgers' impact at Leicester: "The results he has had are very good. He is a manager that knows the Premier League. Leicester is a very good team with good players, that's why they won the Premier League a few years ago. It will be a difficult game.

    "At the moment, they are playing with a lot of trust, maybe they were not in a good moment when we last played them."

    The Hammers drew 1-1 at Leicester in October but the Foxes have won five of their last seven to move up to seventh place.

  15. Pellegrini hopes for Wilshere game-time

    West Ham v Leicester (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    West Ham United

    West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini began his news conference by giving a fitness update on his squad.

    He said: "This week I think that Manuel Lanzini and Samir Nasri will not be available due to injury.

    "Also Javier Hernandez has a problem with his ear which means he couldn't work these last two days.

    "Jack Wilshere has worked without a problem and Carlos Sanchez has trained with the squad. Marko [Arnautovic] has worked normally all week.

    "I hope that Jack Wilshere will play some games before the end of the season too."

  18. Has incredible finish changed way you feel about VAR?

    Man City 4-3 Tottenham (Agg: 4-4 - Tottenham win on away goals)

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola called it "cruel"; Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said "That is why we love football... anything can happen."

    Both men lost their jackets in the bedlam of Raheem Sterling's disallowed injury-time goal - the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) ruling it out for offside and sending Spurs through to the Champions League semi-finals on the away goals rule.

    Was this a turning point for VAR in the mind of football fans?

  20. 'Well done Spurs, now take a rest' - Neville

    Man City v Tottenham (Sat, 12:30 BST)

    Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has offered Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino a suggestion for his team selection at the weekend.

    United may be out of the running for the Premier League title but Neville is eager for City to stop Liverpool winning it - and for United to edge above Spurs in the race for Champions League qualification.
