Since losing at Newcastle on 29 January, it’s been a string of victories for Manchester City and it’s hard to bet against them at the Etihad Stadium where sixteen victories have been registered in seventeen attempts.

This clash takes place just three days after the team meet at the same ground in the Champions League, with City strongly fancied to emerge from that particular quarter final tie and they’re also big favourites to win this clash.

Tottenham have their own end-of-season target by virtue of the fact that they’re competing for a top four spot and the London side will draw comfort from the fact that they served it up to Liverpool at Anfield recently.

Spurs will certainly know how their opponents operate considering that this will be the fourth time that the teams clash this season, although Mauricio Pochettino’s side have lost six times on the road already this season.

Several of those defeats have occurred recently, with that reverse against Liverpool coming after previous losses at Burnley, Southampton, Chelsea and Crystal Palace.

There remains a question mark over Hugo Lloris who seems to regularly be making mistakes this season, with Pochettino having to decide whether to opt with three central defenders which would see Davinson Sanchez back in the team alongside Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

It’s imperative that Spurs are playing Champions League football at a new-look White Hart Lane next season and we should therefore to see the big guns fielded, although Manchester City usually sweep all before them at the Etihad.

Rather than back them at prohibitive odds, we’re instead going to bet on the Citizens to win and both teams to find the net. City have conceded twelve times on home soil and might not be able to stop Kane & Co scoring at least once.

However, Guardiola’s team have scored a stunning fifty-five home goals thus far in front of their own supporters and it’s inconceivable that any team will be able to stop them in their tracks right now.
