That concludes our live football coverage for today, thanks for joining us on a busy afternoon that Chelsea were crowned Premier League champions for the first time since 2010.

We will be back tomorrow night for Hull v Arsenal from the KC Stadium. Until then, goodbye.

Second-place City hold on to secure a third-straight victory that extends their lead over Arsenal to three points, although the Gunners have two games in hand.

They dealt with a lot of pressure at times, but Hart looked invincible between the posts and Tottenham just could not find a way through despite finishing the match with Harry Kane, Roberto Soldado and even Emmanuel Adebayor all on the pitch.

Pochettino will no doubt have been encouraged by some of his team's attacking play, although the need to provide Kane with a greater quality of support in the final third is clearer than ever.


Tottenham 0-1 Manchester City

A crucial block from Demichelis in the dying second of stoppage time leaves Tottenham with one final corner.

Lamela's delivery is desperately poor, however, and their chances of earning a point have now disappeared entirely.

Another smart stop from Hart prevents Lamela from notching a late equaliser following a cross from Rose and a slight miscalculation from Eliaquim Mangala.

Pochettino furiously remonstrates with the fourth official regarding a possible pull on the former Roma midfielder there.

Tottenham have a corner but Hart can easily collect as Dier is the next to claim he is being held.

City had been preparing to send on defender Dedryck Boyata before that knock to Fernando and he is finally on now in place of Aguero.

Five minutes of added time signalled as a cross drifts over the head of Adebayor who chases it down but fails to produce anything helpful.

A chance for Bony to wrap up the victory for City, but his shot flies wide after Milner had got to the byline to cross.

Fernando is down now, much to the annoyance of the home crowd.

A final throw of the dice for Tottenham as Pochettino introduces a third striker in the form of Emmanuel Adebayor, who makes his first appearance of any kind since a brief cameo in the comprehensive 3-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford on 15 March.

Chadli the man who is replaced.

From the free-kick, Paulinho rises unmarked to head the ball agonisingly wide of Hart's left-hand post. It would not have counted anyway, though, as the assistant referee's flag is up.

Another yellow card for Pellegrini's side, this time Silva the offender following a rash tackle on Paulinho.

A crucial block from Kolarov denies the much-maligned Soldado what would have been only his second Premier League goal of the season.

The Serbian full-back then joins the City attack and plays a dangerous low ball into the six-yard box which is saved by the foot of Lloris.

A few shouts from City for a penalty moments ago, but Rose is adjudged to have won the ball with a sliding challenge on Zabaleta near the touchline.

Concern for Nasri now as he sinks to the turf after appearing to injure his groin during a fair tackle in the box from Fazio.

Just minutes after coming on, the Frenchman is forced to return to the sidelines and Wilfried Bony is summoned.

A change for either side as Mason goes off to be replaced by Paulinho, who has been linked with a return to former club Corinthians in recent weeks, and Samir Nasri comes on for Lampard.

Tottenham have just under 20 minutes to find an equaliser. Kolarov booked for a deliberate foul on a charging Lamela.

Zabaleta yellow carded after a hefty challenge on Chadli. City are still doing most of the pressing and Kolarov has just stung Lloris' palms with a fantastic long-range effort that moved menacingly in the air on its route to goal.

A real let-off at the other end for Tottenham as Aguero gives the ball to Fernandinho in the box, receives it back courtesy of a lovely return pass from the Brazilian and takes a heavy touch before going past Lloris and hitting the side netting.

That really should have been 2-0.

A misjudgment from Martin Demichelis leads to Kane outmuscling the City defender before attempting to round Hart. The angle proves too much, however, and his shot is deflected wide.

Pochettino has introduced a second striker as we approach the 60-minute mark, with Roberto Soldado now on in pace of Eriksen.

A Kolarov corner finds it way to Aguero, before Lampard has a powerful effort blocked.

Aguero and Silva then combine in the penalty area but the former fails to escape the attentions of no less than five Tottenham defenders and he cannot test Hart.

A dominant start to the second half from City as Kolarov escapes the attention of Eriksen but has his cross from the left cut out by Mason. The subsequent corner is cleared by Lamela.

The teams have re-emerged from the tunnel and the second half is now in progress. We hope it will prove every bit as lively as the first.

An entertaining first 45 between two very attack-minded teams at White Hart Lane.

Hart and Lloris have both been kept very busy indeed, but Aguero's goal is the difference for City after they recovered from a very rocky start to catch Tottenham flush on the counter.


Tottenham 0-1 Manchester City

Fernandinho shoots wide for City after good play from Silva but Tottenham are straight down the other end as Kane crosses for Ryan Mason with not a light blue shirt in sight but Hart spreads himself well to make a strong save.

Chadli then heads a corner from Erik Lamela harmlessly wide.

Milner, Nabin Bentaleb and Mason all in the book.

A lively game, this, with Aguero hoping to add a second only to be foiled by the intervention of Lloris. At the other end, Kane sees a volley saved by Hart.

Tottenham momentarily rocked by going behind when they looked on top and Fernandinho comes close to a second for the visitors but his shot is blocked by Rose.

A painful sucker-punch for Tottenham as they looked to put City under continued pressure from a corner but instead fall behind to a masterful counter.

The ball strikes the leg of Zabaleta before being claimed by Hart, who bowls out a long throw into the path of David Silva.

The Spaniard then plays a cute ball through to Aguero, who beats the offside trap and lifts it over Lloris who had gone to ground.

Goal: Tottenham 0-1 Manchester City (Sergio Aguero)

A big mistake from Lloris goes unpunished as he races out to clear a hopeful punt from Pablo Zabaleta but slips to leave his goal gaping.

Aguero is then clipped by Federico Fazio as he tries to collect the loose ball but no penalty given by Andre Marriner. The striker is furious with the decision.

Kane, never a striker who requires a second invitation to try his luck on goal, shoots from distance but fails to trouble Hart. Quite a promising and open start to this match.

A chance for Sergio Aguero as Aleksandar Kolarov floats in a cross from the left-hand flank. The Argentine catches it very sweetly indeed on the volley but his powerful effort goes wide with Hugo Lloris stranded.

The Tottenham captain is then called into action to cut out a cross from Milner towards Frank Lampard.

A fast start for Tottenham and City look in complete disarray from the first whistle. Good work from Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli results in a corner that is headed wide by the unchallenged Eric Dier, while Harry Kane sends a shot just wide of Hart's right-hand post.

The first half is now underway. Manchester City are looking for a third successive Premier League victory since their humiliating derby defeat while Tottenham need all three points to keep alive their rather slim hopes of a top-four finish.

Following Manchester United's third consecutive defeat yesterday at the hands of West Brom at Old Trafford, City can go five points clear of their fiercest rivals in second with a victory here.

Arsenal, who are currently level on points with Pellegrini's men in third, travel to Hull tomorrow night and boast a game-in-hand owing to their FA Cup run.

Tottenham's goal during their first season under Pochettino was to secure Champions League qualification and while that is still mathematically possible, a seven-point gap to fourth-place will be difficult to overhaul.

A place in the Europa League likely beckons, although that feels more like a punishment rather than an achievement for the club these days after four consecutive seasons in the competition.

So, one change for Tottenham from the side who drew 1-1 at Mauricio Pochettino's former club Southampton last weekend, with Danny Rose deputising at left-back for Ben Davies after the latter was ruled out for the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder.

Joe Hart continues to captain Manchester City in Vincent Kompany's absence, meanwhile, and Pellegrini hands starts to Fernandinho and James Milner with Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas not involved.

Kick-off in North London is now under 20 minutes away.

Good afternoon and a very warm welcome to IBTimes UK's live coverage of Tottenham v Manchester City at White Hart Lane.

This afternoon's visitors will have looked on with pained expressions just now as Chelsea secured the Premier League title with three games still to play this season.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have been abject in defence of their 2013/14 crown, but they must forget that now and look to finish as strongly as possible with a huge summer of change likely to lay ahead.

We will have team news and live updates for you very shortly...
