Manchester City takes EPL title battle to Spurs

14 April, 2018, 20:16 | Author: Hannah Francis

Tottenham Hotspur are in good form ahead of their home clash against Manchester City, as Spurs look to inflict a fourth straight defeat to Pep Guardiola's side at Wembley.

Pochettino's side have been nothing short of fascinating for much of this campaign, taking their progressive approach into the Champions League and performing admirably against some of Europe's contemporary greats.

Unless Southampton win the FA Cup, the seventh-placed side will earn qualification for Europe as the other three potential Cup winners - United, Spurs and Chelsea - should already have booked their places in continental competition.

And here's where we get controversial.

Kane enhanced his chances of winning the prize for the third season running when he was awarded Tottenham's second goal in their 2-1 win at Stoke last Saturday after it was originally given to Christian Eriksen.

Victory over his old club at Wembley this weekend, however, will put Walker on the brink of a Premier League title to add to the winner's medal he picked up at the national stadium when City beat Arsenal in February. He scores four, let's see what I can come back with.

"We need to be consistent during the whole season and be the best team like Manchester City is doing today".

That is certainly an achievement that can not be overlooked, but the club's European failures in the last two weeks will pose questions about City's outlook on the continent next season.




Spurs will face Manchester City while Liverpool will line up against Bournemouth in the 33rd round of the Premier League, with each of Kane and Salah looking to increase their goal tally.

"Harry Kane would have a claim to play instead of Sergio Aguero".

Pochettino does not think that beating City this time would prove they can compete for future titles. Three points against City would be critical for that plight.

"I don't care about the cameras".

"Spurs is similar to the Liverpool team that has hurt us", Kompany said in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports.

Kane was adamant he got a touch on Eriksen's wicked free-kick at Stoke, which turned out to be the decisive moment in a 2-1 win.

Up first is title-chasing Manchester City, against whom he has averaged 0.33 goals per game, while Brighton (0) Watford (0.4) and Newcastle (0.17) have also restricted him to fewer than a goal a game.
