Arsenal and Chelsea have certainly lost ground in the title race as Manchester City enforced their superiority with a stunning 5-1 win over 'Spurs.
City's win moved them a point clear of Arsenal, and three clear of Jose Mourinho's side. Both sides were held to draws in the midweek run of fixtures, with Chelsea's 0-0 at home to West Ham arguably more disappointing than the Gunners 2-2 result away at Southampton on Tuesday evening.
11 wins from 12 league games has rescued City from a slow start after dropping points consistently, most notably away to Cardiff (lost 3-2), Stoke (drew 0-0) and Aston Villa (lost 3-2). Especially when manager Manuel Pelligrini received criticism earlier in the season for his sides inability to win away from home.
The re-emergence of Joe Hart has given City stability in goal and with Vincent Kompany regaining fitness with every game, things can only get better for the Citizens.
Key games and harder challenges lie ahead though, with a mouthwatering clash against Chelsea taking place at the Etihad to come.
Further down the line for City is the eye-catching tie of Barcelona in the Champions League which will certainly test all of the quadruple credentials that City hope to have.
