Gareth Taylor knows how great a team he has and is sure to let us know. The Manchester City manager, speaking after his side earned their 12th! successive win in the FAWSL, said his players deserved the credit.

The win helped City stay within touching distance of table-topping Chelsea with three WSL games remaining, with the pair set to meet later this month in a potential title-deciding clash.

Let’s see what he had to say-

“To go on this 12-game winning streak is something the players deserve credit for,” he declared.

“In a 22-game season, it’s phenomenal.

“It’s given us chance – we’re in touching distance and we know what we need to do in these games.”

“It wasn’t easy. It was a well-earned three points. Spurs worked really hard, pressing, and they tweaked a few things – they threw an extra player forward.

“You’re not always going to get things right. Our decision-making could have improved but it’s never an easy game here.

As City’s title chase becomes clear, Taylor and the players know there is no margin for error. If they can continue their record pace they will be champions. A tall task ,but achievable.
