This game over recent years has been the decider of who finishes 4th and 5th in the Premier League however with Manchester City winning the league last year they will expect to beat teams like Tottenham at home.
Both teams were in action midweek with Manchester City hosting Dutch champions Ajax and Tottenham hosting Maribor at home so neither had a long distance to travel. However Manchester City made the game hard work and still didnt win the game. This almost ended Manchester City’s chance of qualifying into the next round of the champions league. Tottenham on the other hand made a few changes for the game midweek and still managed to beat Maribor.
Tottenham will be in high spirits travelling to Manchester City who have struggled to find clean sheets in the league this season managing to concede in near enough every game that they played in. Although last week found them a clean sheet at West Ham they didnt score either. City might be low on confidence but this won’t be easy for Spurs if they are to win, City still have more than enough talent to cause trouble to even the best defences in the world. My prediction will be for a draw but a score draw probably 2-2.
