A week of fantastic European football has stolen all the headlines but it’s straight back into domestic football this week. Saturday’s evening kick-off in the Premier League looks like a cracker as Manchester City travel to Wembley to face Tottenham on the back of being knocked out of the Champions League against Liverpool.
Tottenham will take confidence from their recent record against Man City which is better than most teams’. Of the last five meetings, Spurs have won three and have managed to get all three points in both of their last two home games against City. However, Pep Guardiola’s side did come out on top in the reverse fixture back in December as a Sterling brace led them to a 4-1 victory. There have been over 2.5 goals in four of the last five meetings.
Saturday’s hosts will be hoping to break into the top three so they can avoid the Champions League play-off that comes with finishing 4th, they can do that with three points. Danny Rose is still struggling to brush off his calf knock while Kyle Walker-Peters and Harry Winks are also injured. Latest matches: Tottenham Hotspur

If United lose on Sunday then a win for City will mean they are the 2017/18 Premier League champions. Benjamin Mendy has confirmed his return from injury but might not be risked on Saturday. Aguero is also a major doubt for the clash and John Stones is unavailable.

On a run of three consecutive losses in all competitions, Man City won’t be as confident as usual of a strong result and Tottenham will certainly fancy their chances. If it wasn’t for the home advantage, the Citizens would be seen as favourites but the Wembley crowd make it a level playing field and a draw is probably the most likely outcome between two top sides.
