Tottenham face league leaders Manchester City at Wembley this Saturday, in what is expected to be a stupendous clash between the two powerhouse sides. A win in this game could seal the Premier League trophy for the Cityzens and it will be important for us to do everything we can to prevent them from getting closer to their goal.
We have been experiencing an unbeaten run of sorts in the Premier League and interestingly, our previous loss came at the hands of City.
Our club’s official website has provided updates about injuries and illnesses affecting the team.
Danny Rose is out with a calf injury and he is set to miss this game. However, it is not a serious concern and the defender is expected to return soon. In his absence, Ben Davies should continue to work his magic at left-back.
Meanwhile, Kyle Walker-Peters and Harry Winks continue to be sidelined due to their respective injuries but both players are undergoing rehab and they should return to match fitness soon enough. Besides that, Pochettino seems to have no fresh injury concerns and is likely to have a full-strength squad at hand.
After enduring back-to-back defeats against Liverpool in the Champions League and a crushing loss at the hands of arch-rivals Manchester United, City will be looking to get back to winning ways but we must ensure that we put up a tough fight.
It will be important for us to capitalise on their slump in form and improve our chances of leapfrogging Liverpool to secure a third-place finish in the league standings. We are currently on par with them but a win would provide us with a solid chance of progressing further to finish the season on a strong note.
