"Of course it is a tough place to come and play good football but we did it", said Fernandinho.

As well as sitting clear at the summit, the Premier League leaders are also in with a strong chance of winning Europe's premier prize - the Champions League for the first time after reaching the quarter-finals following a 5-2 aggregate victory over Basel in the last 16. "But the important thing is on March 12, we have 81 points, that is a lot of points".

"We are still only one point away from moving out of the relegation zone and we know we have some very big games still to come", the French defender said to the club's official website.

"He was very complimentary to ourselves with the spirit we showed but I went to congratulate him for the way they play the game".

"As soon as possible is better, but it doesn't matter where".

"What I would say is it's the best team I've seen in terms of their attacking shape being the best defensive shape".

"That is how they all want to play because they look like they are having fun as well".

"The league is so complicated because of the physicality, the conditions, the pitches - many reasons".

Silva has been sporadically absent for Premier League matches as he regularly returns to Valencia to be with his family.

Silva also bagged his second league brace of the campaign - he'd only scored three in his previous seven Premier League seasons combined.

Walker shot wide for the visitors while a Sane effort was well saved by Butland, before a controversial moment in the 80th minute when Sterling dispossessed Ndiaye from a drop ball which Stoke thought they would be allowed to play after the game was stopped for injuries.Sterling advanced and appeared about to score before Ndiaye made a recovering tackle. It's the fourth longest run without defeat from a Premier League debut, after Jens Lehmann (47), Arjen Robben and Didier Drogba (37 each).

Manchester City's next game will be a trip to Everton on March 31, and should they win the tie, then a win for them on April 7 against Manchester United will give them the EPL title.

Stoke host ninth-placed Everton in the league on Saturday.
