3 Reasons Why Tottenham Will Win At The Etihad And Prove A Point

Tottenham travel to the Etihad stadium in fine mood and in great form as well. The side from London lie second in the Premier League standing and know a decent result against the Citizens would almost guarantee them a place in the top four.

Spurs though don’t have history on their side in this fixture as they haven’t beaten Manchester City away from home in the last five meetings. In fact, Spurs haven’t scored many goals either in this fixture and the four goal win over City at White Hart Lane could be considered an anomaly.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are in great form though and would be looking to give the City players more misery by making it back-to-back defeats at home. We look ahead to an incredibly tense tie and provide three reasons why Spurs will defeat Manchester City.

Lack of playing time for Kompany

Although Manchester City have not had the services of Vincent Kompany for many games this season, he should be back to the first team for this game, Tottenham might be worried but they should take it easy.

Kompany hasn’t played first team football for a long time and his partner in the heart of defence, whoever it could be, hasn’t had the best season either. Harry Kane could have a field day against the defence of Manchester City and score a goal or two.

Spurs have the bit between their teeth

Mousa Dembele

Tottenham are on fire at the moment and this is their greatest chance of winning the league in a long time. Spurs have won their last four games and with the likes of Dele Alli coming back into the team, they probably do start as favourites for the game against Manchester City.

Spurs also have the likes of Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela in the team to provide them great pace on the counter-attack, which could be devastating for a Manchester City team that seem to have forgotten how to defend.

Injuries a dampener for City

Manchester City have their talisman in David Silva injured for this game, it isn’t just Silva who isn’t fit, Kevin de Bruyne and Jesus Navas are big absentees for the team and that would greatly reduce City’s prospects of scoring against the tightest defence in the league.

Tottenham might not have Jan Vertonghen but they still should have a good defence to deal with Manchester City’s attacking threat and with Hugo Lloris at the back, who says that Tottenham can’t keep a clean sheet and win the game.
