League leaders Manchester City are hoping to bounce back from recent disappointments when they visit Tottenham at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday. The Citizens have won the reverse fixture 4-1 in December, Raheem Sterling scored twice after Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne had already placed Manchester City firmly ahead. Overall, Tottenham have won three of the last six direct matches and Manchester City have won just two. The last time that Man City have defeated the Spurs in London was in 2015.
Tottenham are pushing for a second-place finish in the Premier League this season and it is a reachable goal as they are just four points behind Manchester United and have a game in hand on third-placed Liverpool. The Spurs have won their last six Premier League matches and the last three were all away from home: at Bournemouth, at Chelsea and then at Stoke City. Harry Winks is the only major injury concern for manager Mauricio Pochettino, while Kieran Trippier is a fitness doubt.
Manchester City seem to have lost their touch right when it mattered the most, they have now suffered three consecutive defeats and have crashed out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals. Last weekend they could have secured the Premier League title with a victory in the Manchester Derby and everything seemed to go as planned since they were leading 2-0 at the break, but somehow they lost that match 3-2. Fernandinho is suspended for Saturday's match, while Benjamin Mendy and John Stones have fitness issues.
Tottenham: Lloris - Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies - Dier, Dembele - Eriksen, Alli, Son Heung-Min - Kane
Man City: Ederson - Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Delph - De Bruyne, Gundogan, D. Silva - B. Silva, Aguero, Sane
My prediction: Tottenham to win 2-1.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Tottenham win - 2.60
Draw - 3.60
Man City win - 2.50

City were definitely the better side in that game but I wonder if they really have been that good or just the Spurs were awful, I think the second statement is a lot closer to the truth.
Yeah OK, Spurs would hardly miss the top 4 spot despite that loss but year after year they showing that they have issues playing with the top teams and this is more because of lack of confidence than anything else I think.
