Spurs host the defending champions on Sunday

Spurs have not won a major trophy in the last 14 years and counting. The last trophy they won was the League Cup back in 2008. All of their previous honours have come before 2000. Tottenham have managed to come close to winning the Premier League and UCL over the years. They were favourites to lift the title in the 2016-17 season but finished second to Chelsea. Tottenham also lost the UCL final against Liverpool in the 2018-19 season. As of now, Tottenham are fighting for a spot in the top 4 of the Premier League.

Manchester City on the other hand are not at their best. Even when not at their best, Pep’s team are second in the league. Manchester City cannot afford a loss as they have to chase Arsenal’s 5 point lead at the top. Pep will look to add his 5th Premier League title in 6 years.

Player To Watch

Tottenham Hotspurs

Harry Kane

Spurs main man alongside Son Heung Min. Harry Kane is just behind Erling Haaland in the Golden Boot race. Kane has scored 16 goals in 21 premier league games. Last season Kane scored just 17 premier league goals in 37 games. This season Kane is inbound to get a good goal tally. Harry Kane has a poor record against Manchester City in his career. He has managed to score just 4 goals against Manchester City in 14 games. On the other hand Kane is just one goal shy from becoming Tottenham’s topscorer. It would be an iconic moment for the striker to bag a goal against Manchester City.

Manchester City

Erling Haaland

Nicolas Anelka won the PL Golden Boot in 2009 scoring 21 goals. Erling Haaland has already scored 25 goals in 19 games. The Norwegian striker is definitely going to end up as the topscorer. His blistering pace and precision makes him a very prolific striker. Haaland is certainly the missing piece for Pep Guardiola. After the departure of Sergio Aguero, Manchester City has missed a prolific striker. Haaland has already scored 4 Premier League hat-tricks. If Manchester City are to score against Tottenham Hotspurs, it is highly probable that Erling Haaland will score.

  • Manchester City have lost their last three away games in the Premier League against Tottenham Hotspurs.

Lucas Moura is running down the last few months of his Tottenham Hotspurs contract. Unfortunately a tendon injury has ruled him out. Pape Sarr is surely set to miss the match against Manchester City because of a hip injury. The injury will not sideline him for too long but it is probable that he will miss the match against City. Richarlison is also recovering from a minor injury but will surely face Manchester City. After many twists and months of negotiations, Pedro Porro has finally signed for Tottenham Hotspurs. Pedro is now set to make his first debut for Tottenham Hotspurs against his former club.
