As far as you know, does the Gmail account have associated cell phone and 2nd email address for recovery? Basically we need to know more details about what you know and Goole asked about the account details.

The phone number associated with the account is not the same I have now. When I sign into Google, the email address I cannot remember password ***** pops up. I cannot get into gmail at all.

I know your last successful access to the Gmail account was yesterday 6.30 am on you phone, can you further clarify how it was done, using an email program of the phone, or via web after you gave correct password ***** site?
