Manchester City had numerous problems since December which reached the boiling point last week with a 4:0 trashing by the hands of Everton. If they fail to win the forthcoming match their chances for finishing in the top four will be very slim. Most of their competitors are in the good form and they have to keep up and finally record a victory in the derby. Since Gundogan's injury everything went bad for City and with Fernandinho out for same reasons it is hard to believe they can match Tottenham's midfield power in the forthcoming match.
Tottenham is looking great at the moment. With five victories in a row and 19 goals scored in that period they are probably the worst possible opponent for any team in Premier League currently. If they defeat Manchester City they will become Chelsea's biggest rivals in the race for the title.
It is hard to predict who will win this match. Tottenham is a slight favorite, considering they won three matches against Manchester City in a row. However, it is probably wiser to bet on over 2.5 goals here.
