    Are Manchester City's title hopes over?

    The good news for Pep Guardiola is that his side is still going strong in the Champions League and the FA Cup.

    Chelsea are going to take some catching now.

    Many thanks for your company. Until next time.

  3. 'We fought like never before'

    Man City 0-0 Stoke

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, speaking to BBC Sport: " Frustrated is a tough word. We didn't win but we didn't lose. We created a lot of chances and they didn't. We tried. We made everything and fought like never before.

    "In the second half we were much better. At high levels you have to play every three or four days and you have to get uses to it. To play in three competitions is not easy when the opponent is playing for one or two, but it is what it is. We go to Middlesbrough in two and a half days and we will prepare mentally to win the game."

    Stoke City

    More from Stoke City manager Mark Hughes, speaking to Sky Sports: " We didn't rely on luck. We made our own luck and were difficult to break down. We were all disappointed with the result at Spurs and it hurt us as a group. You can see what it meant tonight and that shows the honesty of the group.

    Stoke City

    Another easy game for Stoke coming up - league leaders Chelsea. At least they have a bit of time to recover from this energy-sapping performance before facing Antonio Conte's side in the Potteries on 18 March (15:00 GMT).

  7. We had a game plan

    Man City 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke City

    Stoke City manager Mark Hughes, speaking to Sky Sports: " We had a good shape about us. Sometimes people go on about systems and formations but it's not about that, it's about seeing through a game plan. 

    "We could have very easily taken the lead and we restricted them to very few clear opportunities. Not many teams come here and restrict Man City to so few chances."

    Stoke City

    Stoke forward Saido Berahino, speaking to Sky Sports:  It's an amazing feeling being back out there. I missed it a lot. I can't remember the last time I started a game. For me to be out there with the boys, getting a point against City feels amazing. I'm back and the boys have made me feel very welcome.

  10. 'A great point'

    Man City 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke City

    Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross, speaking to Sky Sports: " After the Spurs performance we were really disappointed with how we played so we put that right. We worked on it the last couple of days making sure there were bodies behind the ball. It's a great point for us."

    Leroy Sane gets in front of Phil Bardsley inside the six yard area but can't tuck Kevin De Bruyne's cross home. Incredible.  

  17. CLOSE!

    What a chance! Kevin De Bruyne whips a lovely ball into the area and Kelechi Iheanacho puts it wide from close range. Many Manchester City have seen enough and are heading for the exits.

  20. YELLOW CARD

    Jonathan Walters takes one for the team after taking out Kevin De Bruyne in full flight. No arguments as he is shown a yellow card.
