Tottenham vs. Manchester City / Premier League – At the end of Saturday’s schedule of the 34th round of English Premier League we have a great clash between 4th-placed Tottenham and leading Manchester City, which at the moment has big 17 points more. However, the match comes for the Citizens after three-game losing streak while on the other hand the Spurs have series of four wins. Let’s add that their match played at the Etihad last autumn had ended as the City’s victory of even 4-1. Begins: 14.04.2018 – 18:30 CET
However, in that period the Citizens were in far better shape than the Spurs and we should bear in mind that Tottenham won their last head-to-head played at home. Right because of that and fact that they won last six league matches team led by manager Pochettino has declared that will go after all three points especially as their rivals are still in shock after easy elimination from the Champions League by Liverpool.
On the other hand, after being eliminated from the same competition by Juventus, the Spurs won following four matches and scored 12 goals in the process. In the English championship they won Bournemouth, Chelsea and Stoke, and won Swansea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. In the meantime their best scorer Kane has fully recovered, while on the other hand stopper Alderweireld is not fully ready. Definitely out of action for the match are injured defender Rose and midfielder Winks.
Probable lineups Tottenham: Lloris – Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies – Dier, Dembele – Eriksen, Alli, Son – Kane
We have said in the introduction that currently leading team in the English Premiership and most likely the new champion of England lost three matches in a row before facing very good Tottenham. Therefore, it is going to be interesting to see what will happen at the Wembley as team led by manager Guardiola was defeated in last 10 days even two times by Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, while in previous round of the Premier League it was defeated at home by city rival Manchester United.
True, compared to them the City still has advantage of big 13 points which it shouldn’t drop in remaining six matches, even if they lose now to Tottenham at the Wembley. However, the Citizens’ fans believe that their team can return to the winning path in the match, especially as it urgently needs a good result to restore their self-confidence. Let’s add that midfielder Fernandinho will skip the match due to red card, while defenders Stones and Mendy are injured.
Probable lineups Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Delph – de Bruyne, Gundogan, D.Silva – Sterling, Aguero, Sane
