Premier League Predictions: Troubled Manchester City face Tottenham test

Up first is title-chasing Manchester City, against whom he has averaged 0.33 goals per game, while Brighton (0) Watford (0.4) and Newcastle (0.17) have also restricted him to fewer than a goal a game.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says there is no good time to play Manchester City despite it being a desperate 10 days for the champions-elect.

Though he has faced criticism for his inconsistent form this season, Dele has still scored and assisted more Premier League goals than Cristiano Ronaldo had by the age of 22.

From our perspective, we should be cheering on City, with Spurs level on points with the Reds and with the luxury of a game in hand.

Tottenham Hotspur will look to inflict a fourth successive defeat on Manchester City when the sides face off at Wembley Stadium this weekend. No one talked about it this week inside the club.

Manchester City's defensive lapses have cost them dearly.

The goal was awarded to Christian Eriksen during the match but an appeal by Spurs saw the decision reversed and added to Kane's tally for the season. He will be available against City and will be hoping to catch up on Mohamed Sala in the golden boot race.

Left-back Danny Rose will miss the 7.45pm kick-off on Saturday night due to a minor calf problem.

I think City would take a draw after the week they have had.

Here's the line-up we think Pep Guardiola will go with, as he seeks to recreate their winning ways. Fernandinho is suspended, John Stones is not ready, Mendy is out [for this weekend].

There's also a question mark in the front three. Sergio Aguero will expect a recall after Gabriel Jesus was disappointing in midweek, while Raheem Sterling's place might be under threat after Bernado Silva looked lively. We won last five in a row before United.

Tottenham is on a 14 match unbeaten streak. Instead, if he loses at White Hart Lane tonight, he will have suffered four consecutive defeats for the first time in his managerial career.

HurriKane on the South Coast?

When asked by Sky Sports whether he will get past Salah, Kane said: "We will see". Against Manchester City, he has the opportunity to go close to Salah and make his mark.

The Tottenham Hotspur manager also laughed at a suggestion made by the golden boot victor of 30 years ago, John Aldridge, that the episode would give greater motivation to Mohammad Salah to outscore Kane - who has finished top for the previous two seasons.

City's recent slump signifies a lack of belief within the squad, which has genuinely failed to recover from the first-leg defeat to Liverpool.
