Big Match Focus: Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City


Pochettino's side have been nothing short of fascinating for much of this campaign, taking their progressive approach into the Champions League and performing admirably against some of Europe's contemporary greats.

Bournemouth are on the verge of breaking into the top 10, and they could do just that with a win coupled with a Newcastle slip up.

There probably hasn't been a goal in the Premier League that has divided opinion quite like Harry Kane's vs Stoke.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker can add to his 25 league goals in tonight's home match with Manchester City.

Why? Swansea can edge closer to another season of Premier League football, while the interest for Everton fans will be in the use of Wayne Rooney after he displayed his frustration visibly at being substituted in the Merseyside derby last weekend.

Manchester City started the season in sensational fashion, and it seemed like they would emulate Arsenal of 2003-04.

Spurs are also unbeaten in the league at home this season and will be looking to build on that impressive record, as they haven't lost a home game since the 2015/16 season in the league.

Liverpool move into semi-final with win over Man City
I'm definitely confident that next season we can push everyone, even ourselves, to do better from the beginning to the end".

That is certainly an achievement that can not be overlooked, but the club's European failures in the last two weeks will pose questions about City's outlook on the continent next season.

"I prefer to be with my players than to be with my chairman, but it's the decision of the referee".

City proved too hot to handle for Spurs on a freezing cold night in Manchester. However, Spurs will most certainly not just lie down and let them take it on their watch.

Bernado Silva could drop to the bench with Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling keeping their places while Gabriel Jesus will continue up front as Sergio Aguero has been ruled out after aggravating his knee injury.

"Because we are battling against Liverpool for the top four as well, it's a bit of excitement".

"No one said to me what is going to happen and then for me it's a dealing between them". At the moment we have to deliver performances, collecting points, winning.

Tottenham are said to be ready to make a move to try and sign the Frenchman if Danny Rose ends up leaving the north London club in the summer transfer window.
