Welcome to our Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Another top of the table clash between the second and fourth placed teams. Manchester City were mugged in Leicester last weekend and they will be desperate to win this and keep their title hopes alive. However I did say last week that the news about the management changes might affect them adversely, and at present you couldn’t argue that it hasn’t. Tottenham have been hard to beat this season and that has been rewarded with a steady rise up the table and they now find themselves ideally placed to take advantage of any slip ups by the leaders. Will the pressure of being title contenders affect their game? Or will they continue to be one of the hardest teams to beat in the Premier League?
