Etihad Stadium Man City

Manchester City entertain Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening in a crucial clash at the top end of the Premier League table.

City saw their title challenge derailed by a humiliating 4-0 thrashing by Everton at Goodison Park last weekend which has left them outside the top four and ten points adrift of leaders Chelsea.

It was City’s fourth defeat in their last eight league games so boss Pep Guardiola knows only victory tomorrow over Spurs will keep alive their slim hopes of reclaiming the title this season.

However, the Citizens will face a Tottenham side that comes in to the game in superb form having won their last six league matches in a row to put the North Londoners right in the title mix.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men moved up to second thanks to a 4-0 win over West Bromwich Albion last Saturday and they can move to within just four points of leaders Chelsea with a win tomorrow.

Team news

City striker Gabriel Jesus is eligible to make his long-awaited debut after finally getting clearance following his move from Palmeiras but the Brazilian international is expected to start from the bench.

Fernandinho remains out through suspension but Fernando should return having missed the Everton game due to a minor knock and he could partner Yaya Toure in midfield.

Vincent Kompany is edging closer to making his comeback but the Belgian international isn’t expected to feature tomorrow.

Tottenham will have to make do without Jan Vertonghen for around six weeks after he damaged ankle ligaments against West Brom so Kevin Wimmer is likely to deputise at the back.

Erik Lamela remains unavailable as he continues to recover from a hip injury that’s kept him on the sidelines for the last three months.

Betting Tips & Prediction

It’s going to be a crucial game at the Etihad for both sides title hopes and City will be hoping to continue their recent good run at home to Spurs having won five of their last six meetings. City are the 23/20 favourites and I like the look of Guardiola’s men winning 2-1 at odds of 8/1.
