Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City — Big Match Focus

Walker has already won the League Cup during his time at City as he poses with the trophy alongside John Stones, Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph

Michael Cox looks at the tactics, Alan Thompson focuses on the betting.

"At this level, when you play a team like Manchester City, from the beginning to the end you need to compete at your best level".

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah believes the Reds can win the UEFA Champions League and has opened up on how hard it is for him to win the Premier League's golden boot due to his playing position. Of course, City arrived at Wembley still on course to lift the Premier League title for the third time in six years.

Man City possible XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Delph, Silva, Gundogan, De Bruyne, B. Silva, Aguero, Sane. Spurs, quite frankly, had barely been at the races, and City could quite easily have had at least two more goals before luck cruelly deserted them.

Sergio Aguero is also a doubt following a knee complaint after the Liverpool clash this week, meaning Gabriel Jesus could, as expected start up front.

"Results are good. We need to think about the strong points of Tottenham, try to win the game".

Their flamboyant style of play has been key to them overwhelming their opponents all season, but opponents have realised now that they can be attacked and exploited.

Toby Alderweireld is still missing...

Boss Mauricio Pochettino picks Hugo Lloris in goal, while in defence he goes with the central pairing of Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez.

Going into the game off the back of a fourteen-match unbeaten league run and having won their previous two "home" fixture with City, there appeared to be very little ammunition for those dissenting towards the North Londoners. "That disappoints us the most", Pochettino told Sky Sports. Those two players could make the difference, allowing their sides to bypass a congested midfield battle with longer passes. Yet when you think about it, which goalkeepers in the PL are better than Lloris? This seems to be nothing more than a small blip in form for the Frenchman but the variety of his mistakes (flapping at a cross to let Morata score for Chelsea, hitting the ball off Diouf against Stoke and then lunging into a tackle to give away a penalty) will be concerning. But in one week we have lost three games. Back the Korean to score first at [9.0]. Things won't get any easier for the club this week as they visit Wembley Stadium to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

"The pundits in November, they said it was already done - it was impossible that City, if they hadn't lost in six months, it's impossible for them to drop points", he said.

I will be backing the Tottenham/Over 2.5 goals double, but won't take anything less than [3.9].
