Redknapp Gives His Honest Verdict On Tottenham’s Upcoming Massive Game Against City: Fans Will Love This

There is no stopping Manchester City at the moment. City followed up their superb Manchester derby win last weekend by battering Swansea City on Wednesday night to make it a record 15 consecutive wins in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola’s rampant City side currently sit at the top of the Premier League table comfortably, 11 points clear of the second-placed Manchester United. They are the only side who are unbeaten in the league and have dropped only two points all season.

After another emphatic victory over Swansea, Guardiola’s team will entertain Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, in what is expected to be a Premier League classic games.

We are currently placed 4th in the table, 18 points adrift of the league leaders but come into the game on the back of three consecutive wins.

Former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp believes that Tottenham will be Manchester City’s biggest test of the season so far and that Spurs have a real chance of halting the runaway leaders’ charge.

“Spurs is going to be a big test for Man City,” the north London club’s former manager told talkSPORT.

“Tottenham will be their biggest test. If Tottenham are firing on all cylinders, they can certainly give Man City a real game at the weekend,” he added.

While Redknapp would not be surprised to see Spurs end City’s unbeaten run, he admits he cannot see Guardiola’s side being chased down.

“They are all playing for second. There is only going to be one winner now and everybody else is playing for the Champions League positions,” he concluded.

Before the City game, we have picked up some momentum after a disappointing last few weeks. Yesterday, we saw what Pep’s boys can do with and without the ball. They also showcased their class against United and above all, at Old Trafford, where the hosts were on a long unbeaten run before that.

There is an abundance of talent in the City ranks so Pochettino certainly won’t opt for man-marking. Neither can he go all-out attack nor can he set up our team defensively. It will take something special to stop City, forget overhauling them.

If Spurs genuinely have title aspirations, we have to defend well first and be clinical when the chances come. City are vulnerable to set-pieces, so let’s hope Poch takes a note of it and devises a plan accordingly to fetch something from the Etihad on Saturday.
