Big Match Focus: Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City

Man City came into the tie a wounded team, after suffering a derby heartache against Manchester United last weekend and mid-week's frustrating Champions League exit in the quarter finals.

Pochettino does not think that beating City would prove they can compete for future titles.

His tendency to dovetail with the midfield duo of Eric Dier and Moussa Dembele, and constantly move forward in search of attacking opportunities, has made Spurs one of the best attacking units in the league. As a team, they have shown tremendous growth and with every passing season, are cementing themselves as a fixture in the top four and as a team to be wary of in Europe. The North London side are fourth in the table, but they are level on points with third-placed Liverpool.

"As long as it is mathematically possible we will believe we can reach the top four", said Giroud.

It seems ridiculous to say that City could be more clinical as they've scored 130 goals in all competitions this season, but given the sheer amount, and quality, of chances they create each game, the fact they've scored just six times in their last four outings is low, very low, for City. That was a rout in favor of Manchester City, Tottenham losing 4-1 in that contest. However, we don't think City will find it that easy on Saturday. They will be mathematically relegated should they fail to win their next two games. This hasn't happened since February 2016.

Kane was given the winning second goal over Stoke by the league's accreditation appeals panel despite it appearing dubious that the England striker got a touch from Eriksen's cross in the encounter at the Bet365 Stadium.

They could win 28 top-flight matches in a single season for only the second time in their history - the previous occasion was marked by the famous 3-2 victory against QPR on the final day of the 2011-12 campaign.

Danny Rose is injured for Spurs.

John Stones is a major doubt for the visitors, while Benjamin Mendy remains on the long-term injury list.

It's a tough game to call in the betting market. Spurs are available at 7/4 odds at the same bookmaker. "We had the first one against United, we could not do it and now we have another one against Swansea with our 60,000 people and we are going to try to be champion".

Harry Kane fed him on the edge of the area and there was a large amount of fortune about the finish as his original effort rebounded off goalkeeper Ederson back onto the Dane and into the corner.

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.
