Chelsea’s defeat to Crystal Palace has finally re-opened the title race.
Tottenham and Manchester City will both fancy their chances again, though they still have it all to do if they are to close the gap.
If neither of them win it, Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino can take some consolation in the knowledge that their two teams have probably been the best of the rest this season.
Going forward, though, Guardiola is determined to make sure that he has the edge over his former La Liga rival.
With that in mind, the Manchester Evening News claim that City have their eyes on three of Pochettino’s players, though it seems mad to think that Tottenham would allow any of them to leave north London – let alone all three.
It’s being reported that Dele Alli, Danny Rose, and Kyle Walker are the players in question.
While it would certainly do City’s homegrown quota the world of good to snap them up, it would take a phenomenal amount of money to prise them from Spurs.
Rose and Walker are likely to command fees upwards of £40million, and the sky is the limit for a player with Dele’s potential.
The former MK Dons youngster is more likely to go abroad if Daniel Levy does relent into selling him.
And Pochettino’s side relies hugely on his full-backs; Walker appears to have suffered somewhat in Rose’s absence, but he is still instrumental to the Lilywhites in attack and defence.
