Spurs are in a dilemma. Beat us and meaning Arsenal can go 11 factors clear in the event that they win the sport in hand, however can they actually be so petty and never carry out in addition to they will? Spurs have been very Spursy within the North London Derby and did Spurs-like issues and that may solely result in one conclusion: they’ll play like 70’s Brazil on Thursday.
I’ve no thought what City are doing proper now however they should pull it collectively and shortly earlier than it’s too late. We’ve already given hope to Newcastle and the Stretford Rangers and may’t afford to offer them anything. I’m going for a City win on Thursday, both 1-0 or 2-1.
No, sod it, I’m going for an announcement win.
City 5-1 Spurs
Craig Resnik-Hanson (@CraigSporticos) – Sporticos
We’re not in one of the best run of kind however I can’t see this City facet shedding three video games in a row. Spurs look completely shellshocked and Conte appears to be hanging by a thread. If the boys are able to climate the inevitable second-half rally, this recreation screams comfy three factors.
City 2-0 Spurs

City want factors and needs to be further motivated. Spurs are a thorn in our facet so anticipate some fiery stuff. An enormous scoring affair is probably going and City can be smart to get to Haaland early.
4-2 City win
Dillon Meehan (@IVIeehan ) – City Report
Merely put, I don’t like going through Tottenham. The final win in opposition to them was Carabao Cup ultimate two seasons in the past, however that was simply after the firing of Mourinho. The staff has been utterly off since coming again collectively, perhaps it’s simply one other gradual begin like we usually have at first of seasons, and we’ll lastly snap into place. Or perhaps that is the start of a down yr. It’s bizarre to solely be on the midway mark by means of mid-January, and perhaps that can quell our fears if we find yourself shedding. I’m helplessly optimistic although and belief that Conte’s horror ball gained’t get a degree.
Manchester City 2-0 Tottenham

Thank goodness Tottenham must journey to Manchester. Don’t imagine my nervousness can deal with the considered a highway match in the meanwhile. City’s latest kind in opposition to Tottenham leaves lots to be desired. City are 2W-1D-4D in opposition to Tottenham within the final 7 matches. To ensure that City to win Pep and firm will want a breakthrough. Do the City gamers have the will and willpower to point out City followers and the Premier League that Arsenal gained’t win the title simply.
Manchester City 3-1 Tottenham

It cannot be said emphatically sufficient. City NEED this win. If City are going to problem the Gunners for the title, they must discover a technique to begin stacking up wins. The excellent news is Spurs should not in any higher kind than Pep’s facet.
After an early-week absence from coaching by KDB had alarm bells ringing all through City Twitter, it seems that our Belgian ace is match for the match. Rúben Dias and John Stones seem able to go as nicely.
I’m going for large performances from Man City’s greatest stars, so give me a hat trick for Erling Haaland and a City win.
City 4-1 Spurs
